Controlling your own domain
This document helps you take control of your XSite domain so you can manage it yourself. This is useful if you need to control DNS settings, or transfer it to another registrar.

When you create an XSite and choose a domain (your ".com"), the XSite wizard automatically registers it for you. You're the designated administrative contact and billing contact; we're only the technical contact.
Being the technical contact enables us to renew your domain automatically when you renew your XSite, as well as integrate it with related products such as XSellerate. This is standard for web hosting services.
Before we can give you control of your domain, we need some documentation from you. Follow the instructions below to get started!
At this point, your registrar will extend the expiration date of your domain by one year, and you'll be charged for one year of service. This charge shows up in your registrar's account within five business days.
You can transfer your domain to a different registrar as many times as you like. However, per ICANN rules, you can only initiate a transfer once every 60 days.
