Register New Domain Name
Domain Name Already Exists
If you get the message that the domain is already taken, this means that someone has already setup this domain name on the Rackspace Cloud and it cannot be duplicated in our system. You can try a different domain name in the box below Domain Name and click Continue to proceed.
Domain Cannot Be Automatically Registered Or Transferred
If you get the message that the domain cannot be automatically registered or transferred, this means that the domain has already been registered and is not currently available to be transferred to the Rackspace Cloud. If you are the owner of the domain do not worry, you can still proceed with adding the domain to the Rackspace Cloud by clicking on Continue.
