Domain Name Transfer of Registrar

The transfer from a domain registrar to another registrar is a rather simple and straightforward process if done correctly.

The process usually entails getting an authorization code from your current domain registrar and providing us that authorization code in order to complete the transfer.

Today, most domain name registrar place a domain in what is called a "locked position" in order to help prevent the unauthorized transfer of a domain that was never requested.

Before you initiate your transfer of registrar, make sure that you obtain both the authorization code and don't forget to advise your current registrar to remove the "lock" on your domain name.

It's important to remember that failing either one of the above two mandatory conditions will prevent the successful transfer of a domain registrar.

In most cases, such a transfer of registrar will usually take anywhere from about two to seven days to complete. Once the transfer has been completed, Sun Hosting will send you an e-mail notification.

If ever there should be a problem with your transfer, we will promptly let you know of the issue and the corrective step to resolve the problem.

If you don't have your domain registered yet, remember that when you signup for any Linux or Windows annual hosting plan offered on our site, you are entitled to a free domain name registration, compliments of Sun Hosting.
