Can a domain name be changed at any time?

Post by compositor » Sun Dec 25, 2011 12:46 pm

I had ordered a new domain name via Exetel and subsequently transferred it to another registrar since I wasn't informed of there being any additional "domain hosting" charges but my actual web hosting uses an old name which is no longer registered.

My question is can this be changed or do I need to order fresh web hosting?

Indeed a Senior Engineer was able to change the "domain name" of the website, of which I am most grateful.

Would it be possible now to delete the database in order so I can start again, since I don't seem to be able to do this myself in the control panel.

Hi James,

This was part of the problem, I cannot respond to Tickets, only emails, which is the reason I have come here and while I am most happy that Exetel have been able to change my web hosting, I do believe much can be done in the area of customer service since it has taken many paths whereas had I been able to access a ticket directly there would have been only a single line of communication rather than the plethora of questions as already demonstrated.

Hi,

If you have the ticket id, can you please point me at it. Otherwise can you please provide me with the details of the site, etc?

Hi,

As unfortunate as it is for myself as a customer to not have access to the helpdesk being a web hosting only customer, I am however wanting to remain hopeful for the future.

Another question I have is, is it possible to have my web hosting as a subdomain from another registrar?

Hoping for a clear reply.

You can always email hosting@exetel.com.au without a member facility login.

You can have your web hosting with subdomain, for eg: xxxx.yourdomain.com

If this doesn't answer your question, please send the details of what exactly you want to setup, to hosting@exetel.com.au.
