Need help with Snapnames

Hello,

I've recently gotten a Snapnames account and it seems they "assign" you a registrar; in my case it was Network Solutions (for proximity maybe). two things are unclear:

-If you get an IDN at SnapNames, how can they register it on your behalf at Network Solutions if NS doesn't register IDNs to start with? Nowhere on the NS web site does it mention them.

-If you get any domain at SnapNames and they subsequently register it on your behalf at the assigned registrar, do you have to pay the registrar's fee on top of the minimal SnapNames fee (59$)? For NS, it's 35$ for a .com.

Any info will help.

Regards,

p.

Re: Need help with Snapnames

1. I have the same question. Just recently I won a IDN at snapnames and it was catched by a registrar that doesn't support IDN. And the registrar was even having problem sending me login details (likely to be caused by IDN). I had to ring registrar support staff (who doesn't know about IDN) and ask him to manually issue login to me. But since that I can login and no problem so far.

2. No. Your winning bid will include one year reg fee at the registrar.

No, whatever you pay includes 1 year registration. You can transfer the domain out of whatever registrar they assign the domain to after 60 days.

Also, you can transfer IDNs to any registrar... they are NORMAL domains! I can register at Dynadot (who supports IDN registration) and transfer to Godaddy (who are still idiots and haven't supported IDN registration yet) just fine.

If you have trouble with the assigned registrar use snaps customer support, Theresa has always been very helpful. Just transfered a few to dynadot, no problems once I contacted snap.
