    ok, so I finally got round to setting up as a registrar (self managed I think its called) where I can just hold my own domains and reg ones for myself.
    Bit of a booboo though, I didn't think about DNS which the old registrar (123-reg) had taken care of. So transferred a load of domains in and then realised I couldn't set the nameservers to some sites..

    Not ideal :eek:

    What does anyone else in this boat do? I am guessing there isnt a service that will do what I want without actually getting something developed?

    As it stands I am going to have to use it for domain storage and transfer back domains that are actually in use as opposed to in storage. Nominet helpfile is very unhelpful.

    I use DYN dns for DNS provision for my main site but I am a bit stuck with what would work for nominet?

    Any ideas tech folks? thanks

    I'm no expert in finding my way around the Nominet members area so hope I give the right advice but you can set nameservers in Nominet. In web domain manager, manage domains, select the domain and modify and you'll find it there. Unless you want to do them bulk which I'm not sure about.

    Edit - Just checked and it looks like you can modify multiple doamins.

    Rackspace offer free cloud DNS. Highly recommended by us.

    I've recently also become a SMT and have found that the live chat within the Nominet Online services has been great for getting support on, except when you navigate away to follow their instructions and the chat disconnects!

    I had the same problem on one occasion when I used live chat, I was directed to go to a certain page and the chat box vanished when I did that.

    What about if you right click and navigate away in a new browser tab?
