Domain registration and hosting services are separate services, but both are often offered by a vendor. Use the Whois database (www.whois.com) to find out ownership, administrative and technical contacts for a domain name. If ownership has lapsed and the domain is still available, you can just purchase it again. Most ISPs I've worked with give you the option of registering the domain as well, but you can always use a service such as Verio or Network Solutions.

> Hi all!
> A few years ago, I registered a couple of URLs.
> Since then, I've changed ISPs a couple of times
> and put website development on hold.
> Since I paid for a number of years of "ownership"
> of the URLs, I assume I still "own" them, but I
> don't know how to confirm this or to transfer the
> URLs to a new ISP/web hosting service. And, if
> I've let the "ownership" of the URLs lapse, how
> do I re-register them if I haven't yet picked a new web hosting service?
> Thanks for any help you can give!
