Ok so here the issue

I have hosting at godaddy

I have a nz domain name that is at godaddy

Godaddy ask $74 NZD for renewal

where as local its what $20-24

My brain can't quite get around what to ask for?

In laymans language I want to move the domain name here and leave the hosting there

How do I ask 1stdomain.co.nz what i want done

or can i do it myself and what do i do without wrecking the site

As long as the nameservers don't change when you move the domain, you should be fine. To be careful that your DNS service might come bundled with the domain service not the hosting service at GoDaddy.

I would be looking at iwantmyname.com - The best registrar in my opinion.

Hi
It definitely is possible to do the way you want... quite a lot NZ registered domain work that way, bought locally, hosted elsewhere. You will need the UDAI for the domain to transfer it elsewhere. Once registered, you will need to point the nameservers to GoDaddy nameservers, if you are on a shared hosting plan. If you have a dedicated IP then you just need to get you A records to point to the IP. Do keep in mind when is your domain expiring, there are usually different rules if the domain has expired but is in the 30-45 day period. PM me if you need any help with this.

Cheers
Sid
