I am registering a new domain name with you. Who is the actual registrar?
      We partner with BulkRegister to register domain names.

Who owns the domain name?
      You own of the domain name. If you move your domain name to another web host, you are still obligated to pay harper the annual domain name fee.

Is my domain registration information public?
      Yes, the contact and registrant information on a .com, .net, .org, and .edu domain name is public record in the universally available Whois database. A domain name cannot be registered without all the required fields of contact information being complete. Other countries and other domain registration authorities may have other policies.
      It is possible to be somewhat anonymous by using your company name and corporate positions (rather than the individual names) as registrants.

I now host my web site with a new company. How do I manage the domain name I purchased?

How do I transfer my domain name to harper if it is registered with Verisign/Network Solutions?
      Call or email for details. We will send a request to Network Solutions asking for the domain name to be transfered.

      Note that Verisign/NetSol typically refuses to allow transfers within the last month or more of your registration period. Please plan ahead.
