    The company that I work for has had IT services outsourced for a number of years. IT company also hosts our domain name, say example.com, but I'm not sure they host our website (we're trying to figure this out as well - this was all not setup or recorded very well before I came around). Now my company has been working me into being more and more of the IT person, and leaning away from said IT company (for a number of reasons).

    We've come to a point where we do not want said IT company controlling so much of our network. They're taking quite a bit of control over it now that we do not use them for everything that I can do, to try to get more money from us. How do I go about asking them to release our DNS information for our domain, and once I have it, how would I go about changing to a different host (godaddy.com or others?) so we can control it? We own the domain name.

    thanks

    Do you know who the registrar is? Just log into your domain control panel with the current registrar and change the DNS info to another server (ZoneEdit, or if you have your own). You don't need any approval from the other IT person as long as you have access the the registrar's panel.

    thats the thing - we have no idea who has that information. When you do a whois on the domain, my boss's email and our company info is in there and also the name servers it uses.

    I guess we just need to ask them for all of this information.

    What is the domain? You can do a whois lookup and find of all sorts of information. Post the domain name here and we can see if we can help.
