Domain Transfer FAQs

Domains and web hosting are closely related, but separate services. A domain is the name used for your website. For example, a2hosting.com is our domain. Hosting, on the other hand, is what is needed to have your website appear online. Hosting is the space on a server where the files that your website is made of are stored.

Yes! To ensure the smoothest transfer process possible, you will want to make sure you have the EPP (Extensible Provisioning Protocol) code from your current domain registrar, the domain name is unlocked and the domain's contact information is current. Follow these step-by-step instructions to transfer your domain.

DNS propagation can take 24-48 hours to finish once you complete your domain's nameserver settings update. You won't be able to use your domain during this period. You can bypass DNS to see your site with the host's file or a Shared URL though. Follow these instructions to learn how to view your domain during this time.

In addition to offering transfers and  registrations, A2 Hosting also offers high speed hosting solutions to help you get your site up and running. Whether you have a brand new site or an enterprise level eCommerce website, A2 Hosting has a hosting solution that will fit your specific needs.

Cheap Domain Name Transfer

Not only does A2 Hosting offer affordable domain transfers, we also make it easy! Learn more below!

What Is A Domain Transfer?

A domain transfer is simply the process of changing a registrar of a domain to a new designated domain registrar. When you transfer your domain, all of the domain's billing and administration information are also moved to the new domain registrar.

Why You Should Transfer Your Domains To A2 Hosting?

Not all domain registration companies offer web hosting. Likewise, not all web hosting companies offer domain registrations. At A2 Hosting, we offer both! At A2 Hosting, we offer the quickest, easiest and affordable domain registrations. Not only that, you'll also get the benefit of our our high performance web hosting. When your domains are registered with the same company where you host your websites, you greatly simplify the administration portion of managing your websites.

If you host your sites with A2 Hosting, you're already aware of our user-friendly, high performance platform available with our Shared,Reseller, VPS and Dedicated Servers. Just think of how much more convenient it will be for you when all of your website data (domain and hosting) are all located with a single company. This is even more convenient when you own and manage a number of websites.

At A2 Hosting, we have world class web hosting support. Our Guru Crew team is known for being extremely friendly and knowledgeable. If your domain is registered elsewhere, our team may not be able to assist you as quickly since they do not have ready access to your domain registration information. You will have to request assistance from your domain registrar in some instances, who won't be able to offer the same top-notch service that our team is able and trained to offer you. 

Easy Domain Transfers

Below are some tips to ensure that you have a quick and easy domain transfer:

  • Make sure that you own the domain. A2 Hosting is unable to transfer domains that you do not own.
  • Make sure that your domain isn't currently locked. A locked domain is one that can't be transferred to another registrar. Is your domain currently locked? Just make sure to contact your current domain registrar to remove the lock and continue with the transfer of the domain to A2 Hosting.
  • Make sure that all of the domain's contact information is current. Each domain name record will contain both a technical contact and an administrative contact, though this can be the same person. When you initiate the domain name transfer, those contacts will be notified by email. If the information is incorrect, you will not receive that email and this could delay the transfer of the domain name. To be safe, always check the contact information first just to ensure it is both up to date and accurate.
  • Make sure to have your Extensible Provioning Protocol (EPP) code handy. This may sound like a complicated code, but in reality an EPP code is just an extra layer of security to ensure that you have the authorization to move the domain to the new registrar. If you're not sure what your EPP code is, just contact your current domain registrar and they will be able to get this code for you.
