Transfer Domains From OpenSRS Tucows
Transferring your domains from OpenSRS Tucows to Evolve Web Hosting is easy to do. Follow our tips for the successful transfer of your domain name(s).
It is best to take care of these steps first before you place an order with us but it can be done after you place an order with us. If you are ready to transfer your domain, go ahead and order your domain transfer here: https://core.evolvewebhost.com/domainchecker.php?action=transfer
In order to be transferred, three things need to be true:
The domain is not already expired
The domain was not registered within the last 60 days
The domain was not transferred to your current registrar within the last 60 days
If these three things are true, you will be able to transfer your domain(s) to Evolve Web Hosting with no issues.
The .uk and .co.uk domains use what is called a push transfer process and they utilize what is called an IPS TAG. Before initiating a transfer of a .uk or .co.uk domain, you must contact your current registrar and give them our IPS TAG which is 1API-DE Then you can submit an order to us to have your domain transferred.

To begin, you’ll need your login credentials, which you may have to obtain from your current host / registrar and then visit https://manage.opensrs.net
If you’re setting up your hosting with Evolve Hosting right now, it’s best to update your nameservers PRIOR to starting a domain transfer.
Under the Contact tab, you’ll be able to make sure that your email address is current and change it if you need to.
Prior to transferring, only update your email address so that you’ll receive your authorization code. Any changes to your name, address or phone number should be made AFTER the transfer is completed to Evolve Web Hosting. If you update more than your email address prior to transferring away from OpenSRS / Tucows, they will place a 60 day lock on your domain name and restrict you from transferring it until then.
If Whois Privacy Protection is enabled, it should be disabled for the transfer. We will re enable it for no charge after the transfer has been completed.
Obtain your domain auth code by clicking on the tab Domain Extras. You’ll need that code once Evolve Web Hosting has initiated your transfer.
Click on the tab Domain Locking and make sure your domain is unlocked.
