Help again please!!! web domain/hosting?
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.
