  1. Question: Do you need anything from us to migrate the domains?


Answer: If you have multiple CentralNic accounts, and would prefer that your .HELP domains be placed in a specific account, please let us know.

Answer: Existing CentralNic registrars will be billed in the same way as for all other TLDs on our platform. For .HELP registrars who are not already CentralNic registrars, your account will be set to prepayment initially, but post-payment is available for registrars who can maintain a good credit history

Answer: .HELP will be billed in USD. However, we also accept GBP
