I am VERY new to web hosting and have been reading the tutorials on this site. My question is...we would like to register for a domain name with GoDaddy and then transfer(?) it to Hostgator where we actually want our website to be. Question is...Once it is registered do we need to wait 60 days to transfer to Hostgator or are we missing something? Thanks
Thanks for all your help & patience with a newbies like us!
hehe, its good when you do know what you are doing. there are a lot of hosting providers who mislead people and make them initiate a real transfer of the domain name. They ask for your EPP code as if they need to "verify" your ownership of the domain and then transfer domain to themselves. It's really an interesting trick since you can't really verify if the EPP is valid until you complete the transfer. So..be careful
