What exactly is a domain transfer?

Your domain name is that which defines your site and is located in the address bar of your browser. Each domain name is provided for by a host or a registrar that has registered the domain with ICANN for a small fee. Anyone can own a domain name: large enterprises, medium-sized businesses, and even individuals for personal projects. Each domain provider offers a different range of products and features and, like everything, a different quality of service.

There are a number of possible reasons to transfer your domain. For instance, you may wish to switch to a provider to get better value, more features, and more security, or because you’re having problems with your current host. These elements can each vary greatly and it is important to consider the various domain transfer deals before undergoing the domain transfer process.

You can transfer a domain at any point in time provided you have not altered the domain details in the last 60 days. All that is required is your authorization code, which can be easily obtained from your current provider (see above). We provide a step-by-step guide to take you through the domain transfer process, ensuring a smooth and stress-free transition.
