My company has changed ownership, what do I need to do?
If you sell your business or website, it is taken over by another company, or your company changes it's name, there are number of things that you as the client, are required to do.

For your web hosting account/s, you are required to fill in the following online form http://web.loungenetwork.co.nz/cod.php . This is a change of ownership form for your website hosting account. If there is anything else we should know, please list it on that form. Please note that if payment for the account is not up to date, the original owner is responsible for arranging payment to us.

For your domain name/s, if the registered domain registrant of the domain needs changing with the domain registry, you are required to download and fill in the following 'Change of Domain Registrant' form at http://web.loungenetwork.co.nz/ChangeofRegistrantLoungeNetwork.pdf . For example, this form must be filled in if your Company Name changes, or if another company takes over the ownership of the company. This form must then be scanned in and emailed to us (email address on our contact page), along with the administration fee, and any other documentation we need. Please note that all the contact and ownership details associated with the domain name must always be kept up to date at all times by the client, and is a legal requirement of having a domain name. You don't need to fill in the 'Change of Domain Registrant' form, if the registered domain registrant doesn't need changing. eg The company name associated with the domain name remains the same. Instead you can update the address and phone details yourself, from inside the self service Domain Manager, at www.domains.loungenetwork.co.nz. You can find out the domain registrant details of your domain, by using our 'Whois Lookup' tool, at http://www.loungenetwork.co.nz/whoisnz/

We require all correspondence regarding ownership changes, in writing for auditing purposes. Also as we deal with multiple providers, we need this information in writing, so each provider has got a copy of the correspondence, should they need it.
