How to transfer domain name for beginners

Domain Transfer is the process of transferring domain names from one provider to another. When transferring domain names you only have to pay for the new provider and add a 1 year use time.

It’s no different when you renew your domain name. For example your domain name expires in August, but you transfer in June. So after transfer domain name until August next year to expire.

What is the reason for domain transfer?

Many domain name providers regularly offer discounted programs when registering new domains. But less launched a discount program for domain renewal.

In particular, some providers have high domain renewal fees. That’s why many of you want to transfer domain names to other vendors that have lower domain maintenance fees. For example, Namesilo is currently a very low maintenance provider ($ 8.89 per year). So many of you now tend to transfer domain names here.

Before you start transferring domain names, there are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Domain name after registration or 60-day transfer can continue to transfer to another provider.
  • Also keep in mind not updating domain name information on transfer dates. Because after updating information, you are kept 60 days to transfer.
  • Unlock your domain and get EPP code.
  • During domain transfer, you need to authenticate yourself as the domain owner. The new provider will send an authentication email to the email address you used when registering the domain. If you have not disabled the information, they may not be able to send the email. You can not authenticate, therefore, can not be transferred.
