How to transfer your domain name

We will explain the necessary steps that you need to take to transfer your domain name to us:

1. Review your contact information with your current domain register. If you are using an e-mail from the domain you want to move, you better change to another mailbox like Gmail or Yahoo Mail. Like this, you won’t have problems with the next steps.

2. Request to unlock your domain. You should do it in the control panel of your current domain registrar.

3. Request the Authorization Code (transfer code; domain secret; EPP code) from your current domain registrar.

4. Be sure you haven’t moved your domain in the last 60 days, or you didn’t register it during that period. The international regulator ICANN doesn’t allow it.

5. Now go to our website and register or sign in to your account.  When you are done, select Transfer from the Dashboard. Add the domain name you want to transfer and check the Transfer Fee. There, you can see the future price for renewal. You will need to use the Authorization Code from step 3.
