The Domain Name Transfer Process

Step 1: Prepare the Domain

  • Your domain should be valid and already registered with another registrar
  • Make sure that the domain you are about to transfer has been registered for at least 60 days or more. If you have transferred the domain to another registrar since you purchased it, the same 60 days or more period applies
  • The domain has an unlocked status with the current registrar
  • The administrative contact details must be up to date
  • Obtain an authorization code from your current registrar
  • You should disable your WHOIS privacy
  • Ensure you have a valid payment method for generic domains such as the ones with a .com TLD because the domain has to be renewed for at least 1 year

Step 2: Start Transfer

  • Scroll up to enter the site name that you intend to transfer to us.
  • Enter the authorization code you received from your current register
  • Click on add to cart
  • Select our optional add-on such as domain ID protection, DNS management etc.
  • Complete payment

Step 3: Approve Transfer

  • Further instruction will be sent to your administrative contact email for you to approve the transfer through your previous domain registrar by clicking on an approval link. This email will usually take 1-2 hours.

Step 4: Accept Transfer

  • Once your previous domain registrar approves the transfer, you will be able to see your domain, configure and use it through our domain manager.

Frequently asked questions

This is the name of your website. It is a human readable form of an IP address. Web browsers needs an IP address to locate a website location, however, humans work well with words rather than number, hence, a Domain Name Server (DNS) translate the website domain name you have typed with the corresponding IP address behind the scenes to locate it.

Yes, you can, you have to provide your domain name in the search box at the top and then follow the steps that is prompted to you. You need to provide your Authorization code from your previous register to complete the transfer.

Will the remaining time I have with my current registrar be lost?

No, the time is carried over to the new registrar.

WHOIS (Who is responsible) is an internet service that makes it possible to look up a domain’s information.
