This person has just filled out numerous form fields and spent their hard-earned money on your site – what a shame it would be to waste this great opportunity for customer engagement by simply re-displaying the order information on the order confirmation page.

DNS Transfer: You will simply need to update your domain’s name servers to point to our DNS. You should be able to accomplish this using the web interface provided by your domain registrar. Your current domain registrar will continue to manage your domain.
