Can I transfer/modify an existing domain name?

Yes. In order for us to relocate your current domain, you will need to first fill out the ORDER FORM. You should keep the service at your present site while waiting for your domain name to transfer. We will provide you with a temporary IP address so you can mirror your site on our server. All email and web pages will still be accessed from your current site. When InterNIC receives the template, they will send an authorization request to the current administrative contact of the domain. Once the administrative contact authorizes the transfer, InterNIC will update their records. If you registered your site with Worldnic/Network Solutions or Register.com or another service you will need to make some modifications to your account before the domain transfer can take place. Instructions on how to do this are below.

What is the procedure to modify a domain name with InterNIC?

You will fill out the same form with InterNIC except, highlight 'M' for modify rather than 'N' for a new domain. It is very important that you use the same company name and address on the template as that which is on file at InterNIC. If the company name differs from that which is on file, InterNIC will treat the transfer as a new order and will not allow the transfer to be completed.

What if the InterNIC records are wrong/outdated?

If the contact information for the domain is no longer current, you will then need to use the tracking number you received from InterNIC to fax in the authorization. The tracking number can be found on the email you received from InterNIC saying they received your request. This is the first email they send you after your submission. You will need to prepare a fax on company letterhead, as follows:

Include company name, address and phone number in the header.
Reference the domain name and InterNIC tracking number.
Request the domain name modification in accordance with the InterNIC number to the new Name Servers.
Have the President or Vice President of the company sign the request.
Print the name and title below signature.
Fax the authorization to 703-742-9552 along with a photocopy of a valid photo ID (state Driver's License, passport or any other valid ID) of the person signing the request.

How long does modifying a domain name with InterNIC take?

Once the listed administrative or technical contact on the Whois records authorizes the verification request sent by email, modification usually takes 72 hours for domain propagation around the world.

What is propagation?

Once the relevant registrar announces that your domain name has been registered (or transferred, if applicable), activation usually takes between 48 to 72 hours. All Internet providers must update their records (DNS tables) to reflect new site locations. This is called propagation.

I received an error on the application filed with InterNIC, what do I do?

You will need to correct the error and re-send the application. This should be done by directly replying to the InterNIC email and not by filing an entirely new form. To avoid any delays in approving your domain name, make all corrections on the 'error email' itself sent by InterNIC.

What if one of the contacts listed on the Whois records declines the modification?

As long as you are the listed owner, you can follow the procedure above and fax the authorization in with a valid ID. To expedite this further you may want to place a phone call to InterNIC at 703-742-4777, in most cases they will process your request while you are on the phone with them.

What is a NIC handle?

A NIC handle is a unique identifier assigned to each domain name record, contact record, and network record in the InterNIC domain name database. You can use the same NIC handle as the contact for several domains. This way, if you make a change to the NIC handle (i.e., the email address), all domains using that NIC handle will be updated as well. Thus keeping all your information in the InterNIC database updated.

Yes. We can register your domain name for you without it being hosted by Dreamweb. New domain name registration is only $30 for a 2 year registry.

Can I see what the Dreamweb's CGI scripts for Domain Sites look like before installing them to my site?

Sure! Here they are:

SSI Counter - Copy the following html string and place it on the page where you want your counter to appear:

<img src="/counter/counter.cgi?CounterDataFile">

You will need to change the CounterDataFile to the name of the page you are placing the counter on. For example, if you have a page called awards.html then you need to have your html string look like this:

<img src="/counter/counter.cgi?awards.txt">

If you are placing the counter into a sub folder of your site (say you have a folder called games and a page in the folder called chess.html) you need to have the string look like this:

<img src="/counter/counter.cgi?games-chess.txt">

The CounterDataFile should represent the page and directory its located in.

You can edit the count on any page by going to the counter directory off of your main www and changing the number in the txt file of the page you would like to correct.
