I have a hosting account with 1and1.com, and several domain registered and hosted with them. I need to transfer the registration of the primary domain on my account to a new registrar, but I don't really want to move all of my domains with them. Will transferring only the primary domain have any adverse effect on the other domains hosted on that account?

If you're using vanity nameservers for your other domains, you'll need to ensure that your glue records come over with the transfer (I've had these lost in transit before), but apart from that there should be no discernable difference.

  • By vanity nameservers, do you mean (for instance) ns1.myprimarydomain.com, etc.? I.e. using those nameservers for my other domains on the account? In that case, I should be fine - I'm just using the default nameservers on all of them. Aug 25, 2010 at 13:17
  • @tnorth - correct, vanity name servers are nameservers that use your primary domain (hence they actually loop back on themselves). If you're not using them, then go for it. Aug 25, 2010 at 21:09
