Changing your web hosting domain registrar


Visitors: 189

Unlike the early days of the WWW, it is possible to register your domain name with different domain name registrars and transfer the same between them. The reason for change is influenced by the availability of cheaper domain registrar and better quality of service. The following content is intended for the webmasters who wish to change the domain name registrar.

The domain name transfer is done with the mutual consent of the existing registrar and the new one. After selecting a suitable domain name registrar, you need to initiate the process of transfer using the options available in your account section of the new domain registrar. You need to provide the Extensible Provisioning Protocol (EPP) code, which is the common protocol used for the interactions between the different domain registrars. Make sure that the domain is unlocked at the existing domain registrar end, failing which may end up in the reversal of the request.

Following the submission of the request with necessary information, a confirmation email will be send to you by the new registrar. Based on the acceptance of the transfer at your end the actual process of transfer would be initiated by the new domain registrar. In case of non-communication from the existing domain registrar the transfer will take place automatically after completion of 5 days from the date of request by the new domain registrar. However, if there is any legal dispute with your domain name or a non-completion of 60 days from the first time registration of the domain and other payment related issues the existing domain registrar may deny the transfer.

Transfer of domain name registrar can be done along with the transfer of web hosting provider. The new hosting provider should be reliable and cost-effective. Specifically, watch for the software and platform supports in the new hosting provider. Make sure that all the software required to run the scripts in your website is supported by hosting provider.
