Why your hosting provider should not manage your domain names

Christopher Hofman Laursen

I read a great article today Never register a domain name with your hosting provider, which confirms an argument I have preached since the launch of European Domain Centre in 2003. In the article the author points out that registering your domain names with your hosting provider is a horrible idea for one simple reason: conflict of interest. If you one day decide to switch to a different hosting provider, it's in their best interest to prevent you from transferring your domain names. Why? Because if you point the domains to some other hosting provider you stop having to pay them. There is no guarantee that they will not complicate matters and you can potentially end up in a situation, where your domain name is kept hostage. Especially in cases where the hosting company has made themselves the administrative contact, you have absolutely no chance of recovering the domain name without their assistance.

The solution

The solution is simple: Keep your domain names with one provider and your hosting with another. If you decide to switch hosting provider, you only have to change the domain settings, but there is no transfer process or change of DNS.
