How can I transfer my domain to HostGoodies?

1. Go to this page
2. Inside the new box, under Transfer A Domain Name, enter the domain you wish to transfer, check for availability and click on the Continue button.
3. Enter your domain EPP Code (This needs to be obtained from the current registrar for authorisation). Complete the domain configuration form and fill in your other details, then click on Complete Order.

Note: The transfer process will be initiated after you have completed your payment. You will receive an email confirmation from us stating that we have started the process. Please note that *some* registrars will email you asking if the transfer is ok and require you to respond to allow the transfer to complete. If you have any query about the order, please email sales@hostgoodies.com so we can assist you.

MUST READ BEFORE TRANSFERRING

Registration transfers usually take 5 to 7 days to process. There are two settings that must be correct on your domain, or the transfer will fail. Please check these two things before submitting a transfer request.

1. You must check to make sure if the email on your domain is correct. Once you start the transfer, the current registrar is going to email this address asking for permission to move the domain. If the email listed isn't your email or doesn't work, you can't respond to this email and thus the transfer will fail.

2. You must make sure the domain isn't locked. If it is locked, even if you agree to the transfer, the transfer will fail.

You can check both of the above by going to: http://www.domaintools.com. Once there, type your domain.com in the field labeled "Whois Lookup:" and click submit. Find where it says "Administrative Contact:" This is where your correct email address must be listed.

Now scroll down to where it says "Status:" If the status says "locked," you must get this changed before doing the transfer.

To get the above changed you must contact the registrar (the company where you bought the domain), and ask them to make the necessary changes. Some registrars let you make these changes yourself from within their control panel.

Note: You may not transfer a domain unless it has been at the current registrar for at least 60 days. Additionally, if your domain is expired you may not transfer it until you first renew the registration with the current company.
