First of all, I know very little and close to nothing about the workings of the Internet.

I belong to a small Organization that has a web site and discussion board for members as part of that web site.

The person who is the administrator of the site is a renegade member that has complete control of the site and discussion board.

We have voted to move the site and discussion board to a new provider and have an independent administrator.

He will not relinquish control of the site or provide the information to allow the new web host/server provider/administrator to move the site.

How do we make this change without the co-operation of the current administrator and what do we need to do?

Who is the domain registered under? Who is the hosting account registered under? Have you contacted the hosting company and explained the situation?

Thank you for posting.

None of this we know at the moment.

I understand that we can make the inquiry to find these out.

And I believe that that is being done.

Do you have knowledge of the fact that if the situation is explained to the web host that that is all that would be needed? Do you think that that is all that would be required?

The member that was providing all these services for us, is missing in action and refuses to do what was requested of him.

I agree.
Or any of these:
ARIN
RIPE
APNIC

and we can help you set up and operate your own without a tremendous strain involved in comprehension, given some time and some effort on your part, too. :thumbsup:

I want to thank you all for posting and your help.

I have just been informed that another member has talked to a web master friend of his, and this problem should be resolved within the next few days.

I wasn't aware that it was as simple as explained to me, but neither was anyone else until we started asking questions.

Thank you once again.
