About this, can you tell me after i get the .com as a gift can i go to an official domain name registrar like https://www.namecheap.com/ and extend it for another 9 years ?
They say that https://www.namecheap.com/domains/transfer.aspx
You’ll retain all remaining time on your domain’s registration, and, in most cases, add another year. The process is risk-free and comes with our money-back guarantee.
Zero-dollar transfer fee • Value-priced one-year renewals
So when i first transfer it i can only extend it for only 1 year for $9.69 (with uCoz gift it means 2 years in total). Correct ?
Now my question is after i do this transfer, if i chose Method 3 of domain attachment :
Method 3. Attach an existing domain name without transferring the domain to uCoz servers
Keywords: subdomain attachment, attachment by specifying IP address, creation of A-records
Specify the IP address "18.104.22.168" (A-record) for the domain name in the domain control panel.
Wait until the changes take effect (usually up to 6 hours).
In 6 hours finish the attachment procedure:
The domain name will remain on namecheap servers, correct ? So after two years when i have to extend the domain by 10 years it will continue to stay on namecheap servers. Correct ?
Now if i use instead Method 2 :
Method 2. Transfer an existing domain to uCoz DNS servers
Keywords: change NS records, park domain, domain hosting, change name servers, change DNS servers
You will be able to create subdomains and set up e-mail processing (under your domain) through our interface.
First of all, park the domain and wait for further instructions.
The domain will be hosted by uCoz. But after 2 years when i need to renew for another 10 years the domain on namecheap, what will happen with the domain ? Will it move back to from uCoz to namescheap ? Is this technically another transfer and i will have again to buy it for 1 year ? Is moving the domain name from namescheap to uCoz by Method 2 technically a transfer ?
I want to benefit from the uCoz gift for a .com but i also want to buy for 10 years the domain name after the transfer because namecheap is considerably cheaper. So in this case what would you chose Sunny ?
