How does the Domain Transfer process work?

Your Domain Name Registrar maintains information relating to who your Web hosting provider is for your Web site. When you change hosting companies, your Domain Name Registrar must be given the necessary information to redirect traffic to your new location. There are dozens of Domain Name Registrars and they all have different procedures to complete the process. 

In all cases, you must supply the EPP/Auth Code* for your domain from the current registrar in order to transfer. This is the code that your current registrar should have supplied you with when you unlocked your domain with them. If they did not supply it to you automatically you will need to request it as not all registrars do this as an automatic system function. 

* This code is usually only good for 24-48 hours but may be good for up to 30 days. If expired you will need to obtain another one from them.

Once you have finished your order, you will receive a second code, this one is from us. This will contain a link in which you agree to the transfer. After that, your transfer should proceed and Clue WebHost is your new registrar.
