123 reg ipstag change

does anyone have any familiarity with changing the ipstag on a 123 bought domain name?

My hosting is with heart.

All I have been able to see so far is (point to)

Shared Hosting on MyServerWorld.COM
Shared Hosting on MyServerWorld.NET
Shared Hosting on a Virtual Private Server (VPS)

and then something about A, CNAME and TXT records

What I want to do (if it's not obvious from all this) is change point my domain at my hosting so I can put up visible pages

thanks for that - I already knew what you've pasted there.
I am trying to do it myself using the paid for services of 123 - I'm a stickler for getting what I have paid for once before I go above their heads!

I've convinced myself (even if no-one else) that the Ipstag change link will appear after the 15th (ie. after the sixty day rule expires).

Thanks for the input AJM, post a link to your portfolio just in case I need a designer when I pull my wig off with Dreamweaver hassle in coming weeks!

Thats strange, because I would often buy a .co.uk domain from 123-Reg (they seem to be the cheapest for .co.uk domains), then 24 hours later, change the Tag to another domain registrar with better DNS control, and never had a problem with the process. I've just done this on a uk domain only last week, the whole process only took a few minutes.

Another possibility, I could be wrong, but maybe the .co.uk domain already has had the Tag changed? If the option to change IPSTAG is not showing in your 123-reg control panel, its probably already been changed. I notice that 123-reg tend to keep domains in the account long after they've been transferred away. I have to raise a support request to have them removed from my 123-Reg list of domains. If you could let us know the domain name (just the first part before the .co.uk) we could tell you for sure whats going on.

Hi Rob and thanks for taking the time to answer my question

the domain is rapierinternet

I obviously need to do some more work on studying the whole thing but then that's the purpose of the site(s)

Thanks again

Vic, your domain is now looked after by Heart Internet (the Tag is showing Heart internet), so you should see it in your Heart Internet control panel (If not, raise a support ticket with Heart and ask them to manually add it to your account), BUT the nameservers are still at 123-Reg, so you would now need to log into your Heart Internet account and in the control panel for your uk domain, set the nameservers to Heart. You will then have control of your domain at Heart Internet, and 123-Reg will be out of the picture altogether. Hope this helps, post back if you need any further help.
