    Hi All,

    I'm not a complete newbie, but this is a total newbie question that I was hoping someone could help with. Basically what is involved in moving a name between registrars when it's owned by third party.

    I have two particular client domains (ie I didn't register) that for various reasons I need to change registrar with. There is no change of ownership/registrant of the domains - the businesses who currently own them will still own them - but I need to move them from one registrar to another.

    I currently use ziphosting for most of my domains, so easiest for me to move them both there - although since they aren't full service in a sense i'm not sure if that will make it hard.

    One domain is currently registered through a business solutions division of Telstra, the other through Netlogistics. I obviously have permission from both clients to move the domains, but completely in the dark as to what I need to do to make the moves - ie what formal authorisation do I need from the clients, who do I give this to etc.

    Thanks in advance,
    Matt
