Can I Have Hosting without Transferring My Domain
You are NOT required to move your domain registration to A Small Orange's control. You can keep your domain name registered with another company, and still use our hosting and SSL certificates.
However, if you do transfer your domain registration to A Small Orange, then we will be able to support your domain name and help with anything you need. This support includes renewal of the name, updates to WHOIS information, and updates to DNS and nameservers.
