Moving from Enom to Directi?


Recommended Posts


I have a few hundred domains with enom and I'm really interested in the Directi service as promoted by WHMCS.


1) anyone made this move and is there a simple process to have all of my enom domains moved?


2) is there anything I need to know (pitfalls) before making the move?


Thanks in advance.

Being more specific, what I need to know is:


Is there a way for me to initiate a global bulk transfer to DirectI without incurring renewal/transfer fees on each domain ? or is the only way for us to do this, to initiate the transfer manually as each domain comes up for renewal?


If that is the case, I doubt whether I can make the move, much as I would want to.

I made the switch as well and I don't think there is a way to do what you want. Every account that I transferred had to pay the renewal fee. So, I was just doing them one at a time when they were up for renewal.


thanks mrprez,

Yeah, thats what I feared. I already did this to move to enom a couple of years ago, to obtain their 'cheaper' prices but now find their price to me is too high. I'm a modernbill sub account holder and its now $8.45 per domain and $6.95 for whois protection (ouch). whereas Directi are 50 cents cheaper per domain and whois protection is free of charge.


Its gonna get messy with customers having domains renewed for 1 year moving and for 2+ not moving for years after that.


Its a wonder ICANN don't make the process of choice a bit simpler. Guess that's 1 place where UK domains score over US domains in that a simple change of IPS TAG moves the domain (without penalty or fee) to a registrar of your choice.

Hi Si,


Yes this is down to ICANN and the "registries" making sure that they get their "wedge".

Its also the same if you want to move a domain, if registered or renewed/transferred, the domain itself cant be moved for some 60 days...


Certainly the fact that you can get .net's for $5.45 now and .com's for $6.95 it all comes down to the bottom dollar, or in our case shillings and pence!! :)


Nominet has its faults dont get me wrong, but at least they get sorted damn quickly.
