Please note that domain name management is a grandfathered service of VCG and is no longer offered. This article only applies if your domain name was purchased and registered by VCG on your behalf and is part of the domain name management service.
If your VCG Website Service included domain name management, and as a service to you, we will maintain and automatically renew your domain each year as long you are an active client of VCG. In order to maintain your subscription, a valid credit card must be kept on file at all times. If upon the renewal of your subscription, we are unable to process your payment, and your domain name was registered by VCG on your behalf, you may forfeit any rights to your domain name and your website (it will not be renewed with GoDaddy and will naturally expire and become available to anyone else to buy).
If you should ever leave us for any reason, and your service included domain name management, you are able to take ownership of your domain name anytime with 7 days of your cancellation date. If you do not notify us of within 7 days your domain name may be forfeited (it will not be renewed with GoDaddy and will naturally expire and become available to anyone else to buy).
If you were participating in domain name management, we will cancel your GoDaddy domain renewal. IMPORTANT: Godaddy's domain expiration timeline varies from VCG's - What happens after domain name expires? If the domain has expired for over 18 days you will incur an additional $80 redemption fee to renew. After 25 days the domain goes to auction and may no longer be available for renewal.
If you would like us to transfer your domain name from VCG's Website Services to your own GoDaddy account, please download and fill out the Domain Name Transfer Request Form from http://www.vcgcorporate.com/Storedocs\domain_name_transfer_request.pdf.
Please note that you will need to have an account with GoDaddy in order to complete the domain name transfer form and initiate the domain name transfer. For help on how to create a GoDaddy account, visit our Knowledge Base "How to create a GoDaddy account".
If you'd like your domain name transferred to another register a service fee may apply. Please contact Client Support services at (800) 558-3054 for further information.
