What is a domain transfer?

A domain transfer is the process of changing the chosen registrar of a domain name. Once a transfer has been made, the new registrar will keep up all relevant information regarding the domain and the registrant. 

Key things to consider when considering a new registrar


1. Features

Every new registrar offers a group of services and features, such as web hosting, privacy protection, and email. If you don’t have all the services you want with your current registrar, you may want to take advantage of a improved package offered by a different registrar.

In addition to comparing features, it’s also important to look at how the features and services are implemented and priced:

  • Price
  • Ease of use
  •  Support
  • Provider


2. Price

Look carefully at the price make-up of your domain registrar, because each one is different. Some registrars may charge extra price for services you consider critical, while others may give the same at no additional fee.


But always remember: Price only do not justify transferring your domain. Before doing a transfer, take under consideration the pros and cons of each registrar.


3. Changing ownership

If you want to change the ownership of your domain  you will need to do a domain transfer.


4. How to transfer safely and easily

  • Transfer locks 
  • Authorization codes 
  • Confirmation emails
