Migration of Domains within 1and1.com

      Comments Off on Migration of Domains within 1and1.com

You have some domains registered under one account and you are moving to another 1and1 server.  In the process you will eventually decommission the server they are assigned to.  How would you do it?  Currently there is not a direct method that 1and1 has that would simply move and update these domains to that new server.  We are not talking about anything on the servers themselves but housekeeping information that is in their administrative control panel. When you move any domain internally  they will reset the DNS server delegation to their own  1and1 servers.  I have never used 1and1 servers for any of my name servers (dns) so this is especially annoying because I transferred them into 1and1 with the delegation intact. Why do they re-delegate my domains to their dns servers?
