What is a domain name transfer and how to transfer a domain?
A domain name transfer is the process of changing the registrar of a domain name. A domain name registrar is a company accredited to manage reservations/transfers of Internet domain names observing some guidelines and rules.
In short a domain name transfer happens when the company that you registered the domain name with, gets changed while the owner of the domain name (you) stays the same. The only person who may initiate and finish a domain name transfer is the sole owner of the domain name. Read below how to transfer domain name.
Why people transfer their domains?
What are the reasons driving people to transfer their domain names from one company (registrar) to another?
One of the most common motives is that they are not satisfied with their current company’s customer service. Another thing that often happens when changing the hosting provider is wanting to transfer your domain to your new web hosting company. The main reason behind this decision is to have your web presence died to one single company.
