Like many of the people who posted comments here, I had a lot of trouble getting my domain transferred once I left geocities.  But I did manage to get my nameservers switched to the new host.  It's just that they expect you to crawl on your hands and knees through their help system to find it.  They use Internet Names Worldwide (
) as their registrar (if you were unfortunate enough to have registered it through them).  You'll just need to find your registry key, which geocities will give you if you email them with your: 1. name, 2. date of birth, 3. Zip Code, 4. domain name, AND 5. last 4 digits of credit card used to pay for the account.  The support email for GeoCities' premium services is (, and while they were not exactly speedy, they did answer my emails in less than 48 hours each.

So, while I would never recommend these guys, I'm not yet ready to denounce Yahoo as an anathema.
