Hi,

i have brought a domain from 123-reg and looking for somewhere to host ideally quite cheaply. but my question is if i go with somewhere like this and tranfer my domain over to them do they then own it or do i still own it? i just paid £6.99 for two years so don't want to lose it straight away...

sorry i am new at this....

Don't transfer your domain over, just use 123-reg.co.uk's DNS settings to point it to your new hosting/server.
Alternatively just change the nameservers at 123-reg to your new host's nameservers.

Edit: You should still own it if you do decide to transfer to them.

You own the name for the 2 years providing you use it

i would recommend using zoneedit dns servers (zoneedit.com), signing up for the google apps standard edition (free) pointing your mx records and google, and hosting your website somewhere else.

using zoneedit for your dns servers is good because they are big fast, reliable and free, also you can tinker to your hearts content and there are free clients for your home pc that automatically update it. just in case you want to setup myhomepc.yourdomain.com and you dont have a static ip from your isp

using google apps for your email only (you only need to setup your mx records): you get gmails reliability and webmail client, as well as smtp and imap access too. dont use their web page hosting though.

then point your all the rest to whoever is hosting your webpages.

Google apps standard edition signup instructions here (as it is difficult to actually find them)

It doesn't matter what host you go for, all you need to do is change some settings in 123-reg so that your domain name points to your host.

Easiest for you would probably be to change the nameservers in your 123-reg control panel to point to your new hosts' nameservers.
