    Transferring domains for free- annoyed with present registrar charging to move

    Hi all
    I have four accounts with different domain registrars that I want to move to one account. Unfortunately my favorite registrar says it will cost 7dollars per domain which is a rip off. Can anyone recommend a good provider who doesn't charge to give them business?!! Thanks

    BT,

    It's not uncommon for registrars to charge for one year and ADD that to the existing domain name expiration date. I don't have a problem with that as it shows that you're serious. On the other hand, if it's simply a transfer fee, no doubt they're no longer your favorite and you'll be looking elsewhere (I would).

    Regards,
