    Our local sea cadets had a domain name of www.northamptonseacadets.org which pointed to a secondary site on the main sea cadets web site. The registration for this ran out at the beginning of November.

    This site was registered by one of the parents who no longer has anything to do with the organisation. He emailed the commanding officer and said that he would let the registration expire, so that he could re-register then name himself.

    What we need is to re-register the domain under my account with 123-reg.com, whom I already own the www.northamptonseacadets.org.uk domain. The old domain name is still being held by the original people who the name was registered first.

    The people holding the .org name have been emailed and telephoned, but banging my head on a brick wall suddenly springs to mind.

    I have little experience on this, so can anyone shed any light on how long the original company will release the domain name to be re-registered by another company?

    I hope that makes sense.

    It should be possible to reassign ownership of the domain name via the ISP.
    This would need to be instigated by the current owner though.

    Can't you just do a domain transfer? I'm with 1and1, here's the info from their site.

    Ask the current holder of the domain to release it. When they do make sure they put 123-reg as the IPS release tag.

    If you then register the domain in your 123-reg account it will sit on 'pending' status until the domain is transferred, this can take 24hrs to complete.

    More info here:

    Thanks guys. Never done this before and I just needed some hints on where to go with this.

    If the IP tag is changed to 123-reg, how will they know that I am transferring that domain?

    If you log into your 123reg account there is a domain transfer page, if you follow the instructions in there it will mean the domain will go to your account when it is released. 8)

    No probs, http://www.lowcostnames.co.uk/ seem to have the domain just now. If the current holder can start the transfer (through the web interface) to 123 reg then you can log into your 123 reg account and configure things there in the domain transfer page. 8)

    Thereby is our main problem. No-one knows the password to the account at low cost. The CO has written to them so we will have to see what happens.
