Changing domain owner
The domain holder is the owner of a domain – a unique place on the internet. For this reason, it is important that your domain is registered to the correct name. In business disputes, the ownership of a domain can have unpleasant consequences. Is the domain registered in your personal name, the name of your organization, or even the name of one of your employees?
DNS and subdomains
DNS stands for Domain Name System.
This system contains a worldwide, decentralized database of domain names with a hierarchical structure.
In the early years of the internet, only a few hundred computers were permanently connected to the network. Each computer had a unique name (‘flat name’) and an address in numbers. At that time, all the addresses and associated names were stored in a large text file with the name HOSTS.TXT.
We think it’s a pity if you want to cancel. But if you really want to, the fastest way is to do it yourself in MyVEVIDA. Go to Your domains to see when the annual contract for your domain expires. Observe a notice period of one month.
Go to Help and send a new message with your cancellation to the customer service. The cancellation period begins at the moment that we receive your message. You can simply continue to use your domain until the end of your annual contract.

Do you already have a domain under a different package that you want to redirect? Our customer service lwill be happy to explain how to do this. We also have a few examples that you can use to do this yourself.

Using a subdomain
Visitors can reach your website using the name of your domain. Some domains also use a subdomain to show the same (or different) content to visitors. The most common subdomain is “www”.
You can also set a different subdomain via our customer portal MyVevida. Go to the “Website” tab for your domain and click “Set host headers and subdomains”. Type the name of your new subdomain in the “Name” field and click the “Add” button. The subdomain will be ready to use after about 15 minutes.
