I have a question that when I have made a site and I submit it to the social bookmarking websites and search engines with the url ".ucoz.com" and then afterwards i buy a domain name, will the name of my website get automatically updated in the search engines and the social bookmarking sites?
If not, then how will I go about it?

Doomcaster, it will be automatically updates upon indexing of the new domain by the search engine - yes.

Once you 'buy' a domain name it is permanent. You can't just transfer the payment to a new domain because you don't like the old one. What you buy is what you're stuck with for however long the payment period is for.

Method 3 is attachment without parking - so if your sites domain is hosted on a remote location you can point it to the site's server and attach it using Method 3. Method 2 allows you to park the domain on the uCoz servers - meaning your domain will be hosted by uCoz on our dedicated domain servers (ns1 & ns2).

Not transfer the payment but buy a new one and remove the existing one which was bought.

Doomcaster, yes, you can attach a new domain, replacing your old one.

1. What about the social bookmarking websites and web directories?

Doomcaster, about attaching domains http://forum.ucoz.com/forum/37-435-1

Search engines should either update, since the search engines index content, and update titles and domains.
I'm not quite sure how searh engines work, but you shouldn't have to do anything.

Doomcaster, you don't need to worry about search engines, they will reindex the website. When you attach a domain, there is a server redirect set for it, and all old links are 'glued' to the new domain. However the links themselves will remain as they were submitted to directories etc.
