Domain Transfer - What is it?

A Domain Transfer is the process of moving your domain from another registrar to Evolve Web Hosting. For example, you may have domains registered through Godaddy or Name.com and now you want to move them to Evolve Web Hosting to have a strong support team behind you in the event of any questions or changes you need to have made to any DNS settings or you want to take advantage of our low renewal and registration rates. We commonly find that many of you have domains registered in multiple places and it becomes very confusing to understand exactly where your domains are located and when they renew. When you transfer your domains to Evolve Web Hosting, you will easily know where they are located and when they renew.

How the Domain Transfer Process Works

The first step to initiating a domain transfer is to place an order for your transfer. You may do so at any time by choosing one of the TLDs (.com, .org, etc) from above and clicking 'Transfer'. Once the order has been completed, you will receive an email from us with the next steps which are also outlined below.

Step 1

After you finish placing your order with us to transfer your domain, 4 things need to be taken care of through your current domain registrar. These steps are: Unlock your domain, Update your email address ONLY in the Whois information, Get your EPP (transfer) code and Remove Privacy Protection (if it is enabled)

The process does vary a little bit through each registrar and we have put together helpful guides to get you through the process: Domain Transfer Guides

Step 2

Open a Support Ticket to let us know that the above steps have been completed

Step 3

Keep an eye out in your inbox for an email to accept the transfer and enter your EPP (transfer code)

Step 4

Be on the look out for any correspondence from us and/or your current domain registrar. Transfers can take 7-10 business days to be completed and they will appear in your account as soon as they are completed

Additional Information

Articles Detailing the Transfer Process

We have put together a series of articles to show you how to successfully complete the domain transfer process from most major domain registrars: Domain Transfers

60 Day Transfer Hold

Please note that it is required by all domain registrars to impose a 60 day transfer lock after any Registrant information is changed (except for an email address). This means that you will be unable to transfer a domain until the 60 days has passed. We recommend changing these details after any transfer has been completed to Evolve Web Hosting to avoid this.

Whois Privacy Domain Protection

Protect Your Information with Whois ID Protection

Whois Privacy Protection Explained

Whois Privacy Protection is an inexpensive add on that masks your registration details from the public. Anyone can perform a 'Whois Lookup' to see who owns a domain or where it is registered and they will find your name, phone number, mailing address and email address.

Benefits of Whois Privacy Protection

When you choose to add Whois Privacy Protection, you can mask all of these details and stop spammers from mining your information and delivering mass spam email to you. Emails from these spammers include messages about paying for services that don't really exist to maintain your domain, threatening to take your domain from you and more.

How to Purchase it

There are a couple of ways to purchase this service depending on your situation:
If you already own domains registered through us, please open a ticket for our Billing Department and we will gladly get you setup.
If you are purchasing a domain from us now or in the future, simply check the box to add this during the checkout process.

Is it Worth the Money

For the small fee of $6.99 per year ($0.02 per day), it's well worth it to hide these details from those who do not need to see this information.

  • Hide your personal information online
  • Avoid the scams, spam and junk mail
  • Protect against annoying telemarketers
