I've recently taken over the hosting admin for a graphic design company and have been sorting through the last guys legacy which is a right state. There were three hosting packages on different servers with different technologies. All the domains seem to have been registered with different people etc...
Now we've got a dedicated machine with HELM etc and are moving all the sites to that one machine. I want to also move control of all the domains to one central location too. At the moment I've opened a new 123Reg account which is taking all my .co.uk etc domains in and it doesn't cost anything to do that.
The trouble is that transferring in .com .org .biz .info and .net costs £9.99 each. Are there any hosts out there who do not charge to transfer in .com domains and the like and also have a decent control panel that can point the domains at my nameservers etc?
If there simply isn't anywhere that'll do it for nothing, where is the cheapest place (with a decent control panel). I think having one panel with 123Reg for new registrations and half the domains then another to host the legacy .coms would be all good.
Note please Directi give different prices to each reseller, is possible be a "direct reseller", no other guys between directi and you. The price directi give to you, varies around two factors:
1) how many domains sell the REAL direct directi reseller ( more domains, lower price )
2) Sometimes the directi reseller put a extra charge for get himself a gain over subresellers.
In this case i have around 300 domains, and no gain between subresellers. Check yourself the 50104 number, change for other numbers and you can check other resellers have different prices, this is because as far i know only have directi around 1000 DIRECT resellers, and other 53000 are subresellers at 2-7 subresellers grades.
You can sign with me as a a reseller or a customer, and have the same price always. Is free sign, and you can check the conditions of DIRECTI,
I forgot say you cant change currency when you have operations; the 50104 is the number i use for my mainly operations but is in Mexican Pesos and in this number i am the DIRECT reseller, but have other number for USD operations, as a subreseller of myself.
Sounds little strange, but really directi is a save money machine in .com .org and .net domains, and normal in the other ones.
