Domain Transfer Guide

Domain Name Transfer


Domain name transfer
is a process of transferring your domain name management under one registrar to another. Domain registrar is responsible for the management of your domain records only. In another words by transferring your domain register to another is not affect to your website or DNS.

When the domain name is being transferred, the registrar of the domain name is being changed but it is no effecting with your owner status.

Transferring domain name is an easy procedure you need to have a domain under your ownership with one register and a registrar that you want to transfer that domain to.

There are two ways of transferring domain.
  • Partical Transfer
In any domain register go to “My Account“section (the name can be slightly different), click the domain you wish to transfer and then click "Manage Name Servers"
  • Full Transfer
In My Account section, click the domain you wish to transfer and then click "Transfer away"

The transferring process can get slightly different from one register to another. But all registers are supplying good enough details about the procedure of they use.

For successful domain name transfer the domain must be active. If the domain is locked, inactive or in the process of being deleted or redeemed, then transfer process would be unsuccessful.

Also domain name must have been registered for more than 60 days before you transferring it to another registrar. However your domain involved in a legal dispute or if you are facing bankruptcy then you may not be successful too.

Transferring domain name normally can take more than 7 business days and the time is depending on the register you have chosen. Cost of the transferring and other facilities also vary one register to another, always keep in mind to choose old register and that is recommended by most of the happy customers.

Domain Names Backordering

Domain Name backorder

Backorder Domain
is a service that facilitates you to grab which you most desired domain names those are already bought, when they expire. Backordering any domain you can assure that you can buy it before it grabbing anyone else when specified domain is available for buying. In every month there are 750,000 domains are expired and become available.

Normally domain names are registered for between 1 to 10 years and before the registered period over the domain author should renew it and extend the register period. When the domain author unable to renew the domain that domain name get expired some certain of time after the registered period is over.

Domain Name Backordering types:

Some domain name services like GoDaddy.com and eNom are not deleting the domain names even they are expired and at the situations domain author wont renew it at all. Instead of deleting the domain names this type of services are assigning the domain name to the parties that paid for backordering the specified domain name.

Through Coordinated Registrars:
This type of searvices acts as backorder brokers, which are submitting single backorder application for multi-registrars. The disadvantage is this type of services haven't there own backorder service and process can be slow.

The advantage of getting services like domain backorder is it will guarantee you and there are much percentage of success with the domain name grabbing before it registered by someone else. Other than doing all the things manually these systems are fast, this increase and guarantee of an expired domain names is registering before it is returns to the public pool of available domain names.

Domain Name Understanding (Portions of a Domain)

Domain Name Parts Understanding
When you design your own website you need mainly consider about two facts, Domain name and Web Hosting. Your site can be personal or a business no matter without those two facts you can't present your web site to your clients or fans.

A Domain Name is a unique for a site. In other word it is the address for your site. Just like your home address if somebody needs to find you then he needs to know your address, of course domain name is the path for your site. Unless anybody know your site no one will comes there. Even your site has good products or information.

By the way before guiding you to buying a domain name I thought to give you some useful information about the parts of domain name and why those parts are stand for.

Domain Name Rules:

A Domain cab be contain up to 67 characters and can includes the 26 letters of the English alphabet, numbers 0-9, and hyphens (-). Even the domain name can consist by more hyphens it cannot begin with a hyphen or end.

Http - Http stands for Hyper Text Transfer Protocol.

WWW - World Wide Web

Domain Name suffix (extensions):

Last portion of a domain name is called as suffix. This can be varying to site by site and depend on the purpose of the site.

.com - commercial business domain
.net - commercial network
.org - nonprofit organizations
.edu - educational institution
.gov - government agency
.mil - military

Also there are many additional domain name extensions there. biz, bz, info, tv, name and etc. In present biz and info domains are cheap rather than other types.

Also domain name extension can depend by the country, for Sri Lanka the name extension is .lk

Domain name can consist of two or more parts that are separate by dots. The rightmost label conveys the top-level domain of the left lable. Ex: blogspot.com comprises a sub domain of the com domain, and Tutorial-net.blogspot.com comprises a sub domain of the domain blogspot.com

Firefox Go back to previous state

Firefox solution go to previous open tabs


With the Firefox you may had bad experience like accidentally closing tabs even fully browser also sometimes Firefox is getting stuck and you may need to reopen it and when it backs all tabs you had opened earlier are gone.

Here I though to give you some tips for the situations like I mentioned above.

When a tab is close accidentally you can just reopen it without no effort, of course no effort there is a option for this but many of us unaware about this.

Right click on any where in tab bar and click "Undo Close Tab"


What about closing entire browser accidentally other than a tab or you may need to open your browser some another time for complete the task. Other than saving every opened URL for next time you can save all tabs before you close the browser.
  • First go to "Tools" then "Options" and open "Tab"
  • Under it check the box of "Warn me when closing Multiple tabs" and save
Firefox browser tabs save and quit
Next time when you're going to close your browser it will warn you either cancel or save your tabs for open next time.



Sometime I'm facing browser stuck and then I had to reopen my browser this can close my all opened tabs forever, but instead of closing browser and reopening its good if we can restart browser with the previous opened tabs.

Firefox add-on restart

Quick restart is small extension for implementing this by adding extra option under File menu.

Rip Videos from sharing sites like YouTube

rip videos from sites tutorial

Video sharing sites like youtube, video Google, metacafe, iFilm, Putfilm, break are many popular those days. Many of these sites are web based that means no download option. So you would like to download these videos other than watching them online.

There are many software for implement this even some of them are free of charge. But there are many defectives also.
  • Normally these software very slow.
  • Most of them are advertising based.
  • Not reliable. (not like paid software freeware can deliver some malicious files eg: browser hijackers )

Keepvid is web based software for downloading videos form many video sharing sites it is not limited to 3, 4 sites keepvid is going more beyond from that. But most people thought it just stand only for Youtube. What keepvid does is searching pages for videos so it is not limited to youtube. You can enter any web page that has embedded video.

For the demonstration purpose I’m going to show you about downloading metacafe video. But as I said this is not limited to metacafe or even youtube. You can just try any site that has online video players.
  • First you need to copy the url of any metacafe video.
(Ex: "http://www.metacafe.com/watch/2318765/crazy_plane_ride/" )
  • Paste the URL in the url bar in the opening page

  • Click download

  • This will bring you video download links, some of these videos are available high quality and low quality formats. You choose high quality if available.


If you use download manager then you can download these video through it. NO more slow downloads.

Free Driver Updater portable utility

Driver Updater Free 3dp chip

3DP chip is freeware for design to check and inform users to old drivers and far this is the best free utility I found for keep up to date installed driver versions. Most of us don’t know about the advantage of having updates for exiting drivers or even some of users don’t know about the whole process of driver updating.

What 3DP Chip does is automatically check your devices and make it easy to download the latest versions of five major drivers with a simple click. If we go to update our drivers manually then we have to find installed devices and check them for either newest version of drivers are available or not. This is why most of computer users not tend to update their drivers even they are available for free.

The hard part is almost completing by the 3DP chip and we only need to do is download and install the latest versions of drivers.

3DP chip identifies hardware devices that have been installed on your computer (CPU, Motherboard, video card, sound card, and Ethernet) will locate the most up to date drivers available for those devices.

Advantages of keep up to dating drivers:
  • New drivers fix stability issues, increase performance or add new functions are can have with the latest versions freely.
  • It is almost good for having newest drivers for the latest OS otherwise some of devices won’t work properly.
  • With the latest versions system will be faster and smooth, devices can work together more efficiently than before

Improvements of Internet Explorer 8 beta

Internet Explorer Improvements

I just wonder after I installed newest version of the Internet Explorer (IE 8 beta) it has more improvements and optimizations furthermore IE not a slow browser. What it had done by the IE team is excellent. Optimizations and improvements has made IE as a complete browser solution anyway I though to discussed some improvements that are newly introduced to the IE and that would be helpful to you if you consider to move for IE back.

What I most impress feature is IE has added inbuilt privacy browser. In prior this feature is not available for freely. We had to by third party browser protection software for this. With the IE 8 inbuilt privacy browser is provided. This will ensure maximum protection while online shopping and etc.


In previous IE versions it is not possible to open new tabs, instead of opening tabs we had to open windows for loading web pages separately. With the newer version of IE has been fixed this and it is easy to open any number of tabs at the similar time. Also it allows opening duplicate tabs this is one of feature that I haven’t noticed in any other browsers.


IE 8 beta added a window for handling all privacy information this is not available in its previous versions. This is something like Firefox privacy handling window that would be very useful with some cases.

Popup blocker, Screen filter and Add-on manager are another three advance options available in IE 8. In general improvements of IE consider more about user protection than other aspects.


More bugs are fixed with this latest version of IE and also speed is improved. New graphically rich interface is user-friendly and easy to use.

What would you think about new version of IE? Let us know your experience with IE 8 happy commenting.
