Can .ae (united arab emirates) donainames be used whit any hosting company?
My client current webhost is supper expensive in arab. So i was thinking to take hes .ae website and transfer it to some other cheaper server (website and emails).
But now i start to think - is it even possible? Does anyone have experience whit .ae domains ?
Can i just take random webhosting company and tell client current registrar that i want to start to use other server for webhosting because on their current server they even do not have database capabilities (and they ask over 230 euro for that per moth, they want them to upgrade to 350+ euro per moth plan so he can get database also in SHARED server). I know it sounds like a joke but their support confirmed it. I was thinking that they might be able to ask this kind of prices only if client has no options to move to other host.. might it be?
How do I get my own domain name and start using it?
To get your own domain name up and running, you will need to:
Register your domain name through an .aeDA accredited Registrar or their Reseller.
Arrange for your domain name to be "hosted". A hosting service provides a location (a server somewhere, connected to the internet) for your web site. Your existing Internet Service Provider (ISP), other ISPs, or a "webhosting" service can host your domain name. Some Registrars and resellers also include hosting as part of their domain name service.
Shop around for the service that best suits you. Your own domain name is 'portable', which means that your web site can reside on a server in the UAE, or you can move it overseas. The domain name system (DNS) files must be kept up-to-date with the current address, otherwise, when your customer types your web address into their browser, it won't be able to find your web site.
So, Yes, You can host it anywhere.

Well they was using and register it for company so i was yeah wondering that is it possible that some seller can "hold" it, just wanted to know for sore before i offer this option to my client.. but yeah... this prices are just insane they ask
One thing you may come across are hosts who claim that they "can't" host .ae domains. I've occasionally come across this with hosting companies here in the UK that claim that the only domains they "can" host are a handful of the more common extensions like .uk and .com
Of course it's not a case of "can't". It's a case of "we haven't got it in our pull-down menu and can't be bothered to add it".
If a host tells you they "can't" host a specific extension just tell them they don't know what they're talking about and then find one who "can".
