• 入手一个新域名(即Yahoo域名更改注册人攻略)

    准确来说,应该是前天,在Yahoo的smallbusiness那里买入了一个新域名。由于我没有Paypal,所以在淘宝上叫人代注册。花了几个小时,终于从淘宝到Yahoo都搞定了。

    正当我查询新域名的DNS时,我才发现,原来注册人的名字我写错了一个字母,悲剧了。然后我翻了一下Yahoo Smallbusiness的Help Center,发现他们那里更改注册人名字其实挺简单的,就是联系客服,提供适当的信息证明域名是你的,然后就客服就会帮你搞定了。

    我于是在Help Center提交了更改注册人的请求,几小时之后,Yahoo客服通过Email回复了我,让我提供一些资料,包括付款信用卡后8位数字等。不过我的域名不是通过信用卡付款的,所以我把当时的订单信息提交给了Yahoo的客服,然后这时已经过了美国的工作时间,所以要等第二天……

    第二天,我收到了Yahoo客服的通知:

    Thank you for contacting Yahoo! Small Business Support.

    I understand that you want to change registrant name.

    If you would like to update the Organization/Registrant Name posted in
    the public domain name database (WHOIS) for your domain, please reply to
    this email indicating below the new Organization Name you would like
    listed.

    For any other information you would like updated, you can update it in
    your Domain Control Panel by clicking on the "View/Edit Your Domain
    Registration" link.

    Note: The ability to update WHOIS information through your Yahoo! Domain
    Control Panel is applicable only for domain names registered through
    Yahoo!.

    Registrant Contact Information

    - Provide exact Organization Name

    For verification purposes, please reply with the following information:

    * Yahoo! ID

    * Domain Name

    * Zip Code, Alternate Email Address, or Date of Birth (provide only one)

    * Last 8 digits of the credit card used to bill your account

    * Credit card type

    With this information, we will be able to complete your request.

    大概是说,他们理解为啥我要更改注册人名字,我只需要告诉他们改为什么,同时提供一些信息来认证我是域名所有人即可。所以按照邮件里说的,提供必要的信息回复邮件即可。但里面说到要提供信用卡后八位数字,而我是通过淘宝代购的,没信用卡,所以我把支付账单信息提交给Yahoo客服来验证。

    由于时差原因,又隔了一天,Yahoo客户回复说,已经验证我的信息,且已经更改域名注册人:

    Thank you for contacting Yahoo! Small Business Support.

    ***, as I understand you would like to change the Organization name for
    your Domain.

    Based on the information provided by you we have changed the
    organization name for your domain

    Please let us know if we can offer any further assistance.

    不过我看到WHOIS的域名信息还没改过来,所以又回复了一封邮件问了下。结果晚上回去看信箱,发现Yahoo客服回复了邮件,说请求正在处理,请稍安勿躁。不过在这之前还有一封邮件,是域名注册人的更改通知。

    Yahoo域名的注册和注册人的更改至此全部搞定,剩下的工夫就是两个月之后转移注册商了。因为Yahoo的域名续费是出了名的贵。

    后话:还有国内注册的那个域名,今天联系了客服,得到了一个申请表,据说要填写且连同身份证复印件寄给新网,十分麻烦,明天等到那个代理商的域名服务部上班后再咨询具体事宜。我不再相信国内的互联网,再麻烦也要把域名转出国。
