Hi

Is it possible to prevent a business transferring their .com to another host if there is a financial dispute?

Thanks

Hi pmc
as specter said Huh? please explain in more detail what you are trying to achieve.

If there is a dispute on hosting or domains charges some companies could slow this transfer down, until the outstanding balance is paid, check your TOC.

Or in some cases block your dns service on thier server.to prevent the dns change or domain transfer

If you give brief outline on question, maybe we can help

pmcshane, generally a .com cannot be transferred if it is locked by the Registry, locked by your Registrar, is expired, has been transferred in the past 60 days, or payment is overdue. Some registrars provide the ability to block all transfers. Ask yours to see if they provide such a service.

bennyandthejets, a DNS zone transfer has nothing to do with a domain's registration. But yes, a zone transfer can be blocked as well.

RE: Upside
apologies thought pcm said transfering their .com to another host [New hosting Company] for which the named servers would have to be changed, Maybe when pcm explains the thread :-)
