What does it take to start a web site with my domain?
You need 2 basic elements:
1. Register your domain name ($8.49/year)
2. Host your site (Starting $3.95/month)
Once you register the domain name, it will take 24-72 hours to
resolve on our server and be able to see your site on your
domain name. Please note that our domain name registration and
our hosting servers are 2 different systems and you will have
different user names and passwords for each. This is to give you
the freedom to host with someone else, should you require that.
If you choose the $8.95/month hosting package, we will pay for
the registration of your domain name for 1 year.

What are the reasons why my domain is not being
- The domain has already been (registered or transferred)
less than 60 days ago.
- Your previous registrar has the name locked for either non-payment,
or at your request.
- The domain has already passed its expiration date or is
about to expire soon in 10 days.
- You do not have access to the registered Admin Contact
E-mail for your domain, or the person listed on your domain's
- Admin Contact email doesn't approve the transfer within
5 days after initial transfer request.
Is my hosting affected by this transfer? (does transferring
change my DNS?)
No. You are welcome to take advantage of our great
web hosting deals, but if you want to stay with your current
host, go ahead. Your hosting should not be affected in anyway.
What happens after I initiate my transfer (executed
from MakingComputer.com side)?
- The administrative contact of your domain will receive
an email to confirm the transfer (follow directions exactly)
- The administrative contact will get an email from the
loosing registrar (e.g. register.com, networksolutions,
godaddy) to confirm the transfer
Again, follow directions exactly, otherwise their will be
delay in transfer.
- Once both confirmation above are completed, the transfer
will take place. Your DNS setting will be the same as the
DNS you had with old registrar.
