The process of domain name transfer
may differ based on its extension. It is imperative to request your provider for the authorization code, often referred to as auth-code or EPP code. This code functions as a password for your domain, providing an additional layer of security against unauthorized transfers. If you do not currently own a website, you will need to purchase a new domain instead of initiating a transfer.
The duration of the domain transfer process is contingent on its extension. For instance, domains with .it or .eu extensions typically require approximately 24 hours for transfer, while others may take up to 5 days. Certain providers offer the option to expedite this process via a specific link sent through email.
These transfer timelines provide us with the opportunity to migrate your website files to the new server's webspace. During the domain transfer, the domain will continue to point to the old server. We will manage the transition of your website files and MySQL database to your new account with us, ensuring a seamless transition. Once the domain transfer is complete, your website will be live on our hosting platform.
This approach enables us to guarantee zero downtime during the domain transfer process.
If your previous hosting provider utilizes cPanel, we will employ a tailored tool to facilitate the transfer, creating an exact replica of your account on our server. However, if your previous provider does not use cPanel, a manual transfer will be necessary. This involves transferring the files and database manually, followed by editing the configuration file of your Content Management System (CMS) using a text editor. Please note that with manual transfers, we only transfer a single installation.
We understand the importance of a smooth, hassle-free transition and are committed to providing you with the best possible experience during your domain transfer.
