Web host blocking use of their nameserver's?

hi - my domain name is not registered with my web host (shopping cart) - i was "frame masking" but i heard it can greatly affect seo - i looked at my hosts site last night & it seems they want a domain transfer (registration) @ 26.00/yr - however i tried (in hope) "a transfer" from my registrar's cp using the host's n/server's but have seen no results as yet - my question: is it common practice for some hosts (like shopping carts etc) to deny use of their n/server's in order to force a domain transfer (registration) to them? - thanks for any info regarding.

I think its unlikely,

although .coms can register namesever changes very quickly, .co.uks and other cctlds appear to take a bit of time, 2/3 days

Also, hosts can have hundreds of nameservers, and you must get the exact ones for your hosting package at that time,

I've often found that a chat with host support is mandatory to verify that i've used the correct nameservers

scooterdude - thx for your reply - contacted host today - they won't let me use their ns's for a transfer but suggest i register domain with them @ 26/yr - i'm presently paying 2.99.
