You registered timjomartin.co.uk through tucows for me as part of a trial package last year - now the trial has elapsed I would like to transfer my domain name registration to the registrar LCN - please can you arrange for the IPS TAG to read LCN for this domain and advise me if there is anything else I need to do to enable this transfer to go ahead - particularly if a release or unlocking code is required.
Thank you for your service and attention on this. Tim Martin

Thanks for your response.

Yola Support has now actioned my request.

The why: Not clear cut and no major issues here -
I teach art & design students in London UK & I frequently experiment with new digital services.

Using a Yola trial which included a domain registration - was in this context. The resulting domain I acquired the right to use is still potentially useful for me and to simplify my overly complex digital life I am also trying to integrate as many of the domain services I use as possible with single source suppliers with whom I am already familiar and on favourable terms. I have used Telivo and more recently LCN for the registration and management of a number of domains for myself and for others and my hosting is done largely with my longstanding ISP Plus Net.

In complete candour - I had overlooked the free continuation option offered by Yola - and while I hadn't yet developed a live use for the domain name didn't want to involve any extra expenses in keeping it on the shelf till I'm ready - having started a process of administrative consolidation I decided to continue.

Having said that I would consider Yola again and would include it in a possible recommendations to students wanting to establish online presences.

There are organisations I've spent years trying to transfer away from and the difficulties they raise in doing this are the primary reasons they will never get my custom (voluntarily) again - Network Solutions and British Telecom BT spring to mind!

Openness in support communications and a positive attitude to customer relations is very important in my estimation - even if there may appear a conflict of interest on particular points - an enabling attitude gets my long term endorsement.

So thanks

Tim
