Transfer Your Domain Name

We are glad to have you as a part of the Whogohost family. Transferring your domain can sometimes be a pain, but we are here to help you through the journey. Before you get start, ensure that your domain has no transfer lock on it and be sure you have your EPP code handy. If in doubt, ask your current provider for details.

It is important that you begin the transfer process before the domain expires. You don't have to wait though as when you transfer your domain*, as you retain your current expiry date and we renew your domain at no extra charge. Your nameservers would also remain the same and your website should not go down during the transfer process. So, start your domain transfer now!

For most domains extensions, you have to ensure that the domain is older than 60 days before you can initiate a domain transfer
