View Full Version : Whois.com info
Hey, quick question guys....
My info for corsec.org on Whois look up has some VERY old information. It's as old as the domain registration itself and I haven't changed it since.
I need to update it, but I can't find a login or place to do that. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Who did you register through? Who hosts your site? Those would be the two places I'd start.
Asked them, haven't gotten an answer yet unfortunately.

I use 1&1 (from a deal here), so they're one and the same (host/registrar)...
I do the same, so I figure I will wait for an answer from them. I've tried editing everything I have access to on their information's end, but to no avail.
Thanks though Mechmike0034.

CORSEC.ORG is registered at networksolutions.com. You should have an account there. If you don't you really should have your ISP transfer the domain to an account that you own (assuming your ISP registered the domain for you).

Sponsoring Registrar:Network Solutions LLC (R63-LROR)
Also, network solutions is about the most expensive place you can have a domain registered at. You should consider moving it to godaddy.com. I also have a reseller account at enom.com and can set you up with a discounted account. Enom is nice because they support dynamic dns updates and will provide dns services at no charge. godaddy.com is cheaper than enom, but they only provide basic services.
Lastly, if you still control the pacbell.net email address, I can help you transfer the domain and get the information updated. If you want to do it yourself, just setup an account at godaddy and initiate a transfer for the domain. You should get an email from networksolutions to authorize the transfer.
EDIT: the domain does have a transfer lock on it, so transfering out will be a little more difficult without a networksolutions account.
Bbrian, I didn't choose to go with Network Solutions. The hosting company is the one who registered the domain through them.

I understand.. that's a pretty common thing. However, its your domain and your paying for the domain registration. It doesn't matter who the hosting company is, you can register a domain with anyone. Your hosting company should assist you with the changes you need made and they should also be cooperative to help you move it away from networksolutions if you want. They should also help you get direct access to the domain name through networksolutions. As the owner of the domain, you have the right to be able to access the domain and make the changes you need.
I always tell people to register domains themselves via an ICANN approved registrar or at the very least be sure to use someone who will give them access to the domain/registrar directly. If the hosting company goes belly up and you don't have access to the domain directly, you may have a very difficult time getting the domain back. If the account contact of the domain is in the name of the hosting company, a bankrupcy judge could rule that it is an asset of the hosting company. I've seen this happen several times..
