How long does it take for my information to be updated?
After the first registration, as soon as you receive the confirmation
via email your data will be in our database. Then if you need you can
login to the Domain Manager to update your data. Once you modify your
domain information it is instantly updated on our server. It may take up
to 24 hours for root servers of InterNIC to reflect the updates.
I received a confirmation that my domain registration had been
processed but when I do a whois, it says that my domain is available?
If you use our WHOIS utility you will not encounter this problem
because our database is updated immediately. Network Solutions database
is usually updated once a day, but sometimes it takes two or three days.
In other WHOIS searches, until their database is updated, your domain
will show as not being registered. However it is registered, and can not
be reserved by another person. To make sure your domain is registered,
use our WHOIS utility.
I have forgotten my password (and/or username), how can I get it?
firstname.lastname@example.org with your request including your
domain name or order ID. Your Username and Password will be sent to the
Admin Contact e-mail.
Can I sell or transfer ownership of my domain?
Yes, domain name is yours to either sell or keep. You can login to
Domain Manager and change all contact information to the new owner. Then
provide the new owner with the username and password, and tell him to
change the password. Please be advised, you cannot do that if you are
keeping multiple domains under one profile. If you are going to sell a

profile. Otherwise, the domain will need to be separated from the
profile before transferring. It is also advised that in selling domain
