How does Zispa handle domain renewals? Can you like pay for 2 or 3 years in advance and set it to auto renewal coz word i hear is the process is so boring, hence it would be awesome to pay for 3 years registration and never visit them for a while?is this possibe?and where are their offices?
On a related issue, i was wondering how does Zispa handle ownership of domains coz i bought my domain from one wenhost in Zim online, one month down the line, our marriage broke down coz of misunderstandings on hosting terms.

so i moved my website to another host however the guy has control over my name servers or is it DNS something?
so my question here would be, to ZISPA who really own my domain(http://yoanswers.co.zw) is it me or my former webhost?and how can i rectify this? coz for obvious reasons i would like it to reflect my name, is there a way of checking this online or getting them to change that?

As far as l know and its a practise all over the world, you own the name as long as its active and paid up for. What you dont own is the ip address.

You came up with the name, not your hosting company.

but he is the one who registered it. we did everything online, suppose he decided to be mischievous and registered it in his own name?

When you say he registered it, does it mean he used his personal details like name, id number etc to register the domain name. If he did then its his domain, you become a mere passenger.

Bt all is not lost, you can talk to him and buy the domain name off him. I would do it asap before it becomes very popular otherwise it might cost you money.

If he used your details to register then its yours to fo whatever you like.
