I bought a domain name for my band from easily.co.uk, my friend said that he would sort out the web hosting and has been taking care of the website for a year. We have had a disagreement and I want to take control of my domain name and build a new website hosted elsewhere but cannot find out how to do this. He refuses to give me any details for the current website control panel, the web site is currently hosted with one.com
Just go to domain registration host account with your account details and changed name server of your domain name. If you want to host your domain name any other server then firstly purchase new hosting and then changed it name server. You can easily keep ownership of your domain name if you have login details of domain registration host.
checkout in whois, if your name is there, u can contact the registrar or even the domain provider to get it back, however, if you have no information and if your name is not in it, time to say goodbye or try to talk to yr friend.
