Hello there!
Could you please tell me if you have a .com domain name that was previously bought and renewed through a registrar? Now you want to transfer the domain to a different registrar for another year. How can you do this without losing the domain during the transition or having someone else bid on it? Waiting until the end date to buy elsewhere is one option, but there is a risk of losing the domain. Is there a way to prevent this from happening?


1. You need to unlock your domain name at your current registrar by accessing the transfer of rights to the domain section.
2. Then, visit the registrar where you want to transfer your domain, locate the domain transfer option and enter the code provided when the domain was unlocked.
3. Finally, you'll have to wait for a few days.


In order to initiate the transfer of a domain name, you will need to request the following from the company where the domain was originally registered:

- EPP key for transferring
- The removal of the domain lock
- The removal of any data hiding for the domain owner (in case it was previously enabled).

If the domain hasn't been added to your account, you'll need to add it first. After you've completed all the necessary actions, you can place an order for the domain transfer in the "Domains" section of the control panel. On this page, simply select the "Transfer Domain" button next to the domain you want to transfer and fill in the required fields. These fields include selecting a domain contact that matches the current data on the domain, choosing whether or not to hide data in whois, and selecting the type of auto-renewal.

It's important to note that the domain transfer procedure is free and during the registrar change, the domain will automatically be renewed for one year. The corresponding amount for the annual domain name renewal for the domain zone will be debited from your account balance.
