What are External Domains?

An 'external' domain is a domain that is registered with another company but is used with 1&1 services (hosting, e-mail, etc.). It is possible to contact your domain's current registrar and provide them with the 1&1 name servers so that your registrar can "point" your domain to your 1&1 package. This process is also known as a DNS transfer.
