Help again please!!! web domain/hosting?

okay I’m gonna ask again just to be sure….here is what is going on. I and this other girl(becky) were members of a site the original owner(brad) decided to give it to us. She transfered the domain name to me. then she transfered the host stuff to Becky. Well then Becky decides that she is the sole owner of the site and I have nothing to do with it anymore. I was wonder what having the domain in my name means and if there is anything that I can do? What is the difference between hosting and the domain? I am so mad lol I don’t really now what to do. Thanks for the help!

The area title points to the Web server and the web site on it. For example, the area title answers.yahoo website points to the computers at Yahoo! that host Answers. You fairly clearly need technical, and most likely legal, help. One- You need to setup who is the registrant of the area name. The registrant is the “owner” of the name. It’s the Registrant who in the end determines what is done with a area name, this kind of as what Web server it points to. You are able to discover out who the registrant is by visiting a Whois server, this kind of as netsol website/whois and searching for your area name. If you tend to be not the registrant, you tend to be out of luck and this dialogue is basically over. If your title is outlined as the Registrant, you are able to basically alter other info about the title and get it to phase at a new site. One factor you will want to do if you tend to be the registrant is alter the administrative, billing and specialized contacts to be yourself. How you do that depends on who the registrar is. The registrar is the business that sold Brad the area name. Then, you will want to alter the DNS (Domain Name Servers) to phase to some thing other than Becky’s Web site. Again, how you do that depends on the registrar. It may nicely flip out that even if you tend to be outlined as the registrant of the site, you can’t shield declare to it because of to authorized reasons, or that you may be infringing on some rights Becky has, etc. That’s why I say you tend to be sensible to get in touch with an attorney educated in this area, or function with a advisor acquainted with this kind of matters.

If it is in your name, you should be the rightful owner. Figure out what site the domain name is registered through (e.g. GoDaddy.com), contact them, and change your password if needed.

The domain name points to the Web server and the site on it. For example, the domain name answers.yahoo.com points to the computers at Yahoo! that host Answers.

You quite clearly need technical, and possibly legal, help.

1. You need to establish who is the registrant of the domain name. The registrant is the “owner” of the name. It’s the Registrant who ultimately determines what is done with a domain name, such as what Web server it points to.

You can find out who the registrant is by visiting a Whois server, such as http://www.netsol.com/whois and searching for your domain name.

If you are not the registrant, you are out of luck and this conversation is basically over.

If your name is listed as the Registrant, you can basically change other information about the name and get it to point at a new site.

One thing you will want to do if you are the registrant is change the administrative, billing and technical contacts to be yourself. How you do that depends on who the registrar is. The registrar is the company that sold Brad the domain name.

Then, you’ll want to change the DNS (Domain Name Servers) to point to something other than Becky’s Web site. Again, how you do that depends on the registrar.

It may well turn out that even if you are listed as the registrant of the site, you cannot hold claim to it due to legal reasons, or that you may be infringing on some rights Becky has, etc.

That’s why I say you are wise to contact an attorney knowledgeable in this area, or work with a consultant familiar with such matters.
