Hi Malte,

I'm not so experimented in web site
and I don't understand what you mean

Suppose you have an existing website : www.mydomain.com
and want to stop your yearly subscription by your web-hoster and stop  
your existing web site by this wb hoster
and then you move your web site to an on-rev server

if the visitor type in his browser : "www.mydomain.com", will he be  
directed to your site ?
