Transfer Domains From register.com

Transferring your domains from register.com 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/mydomainsearch.php?action=transfer&bulk=1

In order to be transferred, three things need to be true:

  1. The domain is not already expired

  2. The domain was not registered within the last 60 days

  3. 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.

A Special Note About Transferring .uk and .co.uk Domains to us

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.

TLDs Effected

Visit the register.com website and login. Search for the domain(s) that you want to transfer.


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.

Verify your contact details

Select contact information from the menu on the left side of the page and update your email address if you need to. This could take up to 24 hours to take effect.

Important Warning

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 register.com, they will place a 60 day lock on your domain name and restrict you from transferring it until then.

Disable privacy (if enabled)

If privacy is enabled, you will need to call register.com at 1-888-734-4783 to have them disable this.

Obtain your authorization code (sometimes called an EPP code)

On the main domain screen, scroll to the bottom of the screen and you’ll see a link to obtain the authorization code. The code will be emailed to you within 4-5 days.

Unlock your domain

All domains that you wish to transfer will need to be unlocked prior to transferring to Evolve Web Hosting.
