Err, of all things, you *really* don't want to have any domain with
network solutions (which you call internic, but they're distinct).
Network solutions, apart from costing more, will give you the worst service
possible, if they do not screw up your domain for two months (like they did
for us):

We can at your option
1) Keep the zone where it is hosted and point records to the hosts of your
2) Change the technical/owner contact on the zone, so that you can directly
   admin the zone with opensrs (easy to do, works through a web site)
3) If you *really* want to move back the zone to network solutions, you can
   initiate a transfert and we'll approve it.

No money is necessary for the two zones (we "own" svcs.net and svcs.org)
