More info about transferring a domain to a new registrar
(e.g., Dotster)> I failed to note that you will need an
authorization code from the current registrar to effect a
transfer to a new registrar. Most domain registrars, including
Dotser, GoDaddy etc., provide (can you believe it!) actual
telephone support. So call the number there on the link page.
PS1: This domain registration process just gets your domain
name back under your control. You still need a hosting service
for your site. Most registrars, like Dotster and GoDaddy also
provide a wide range of hosting options.
PS2: This Avid mess is one more reason to consider having your
domain registrar be different from your hosting company!
