By Aslam Saah
SeekaHost offers you an easy way of transferring your domains from other registrars to us. Here, I have explained the steps to be followed to transfer the domains.
Firstly, In your Old Domain Registrar, You have to request for “transfer domain”, where they will send you EPP Code (Authentication Code), which is must for transferring domains.
How to Transfer Domains From NameCheap to SeekaHost?
Let’s take NameCheap as your Source Domain Registrar. Before following the steps to transfer the domains from NameCheap to SeekaHost, You have to Make Sure the Following Condition Applies,
- The domain you have registered in NameCheap must be more than 60 days old, (It’s Common for any domain registrar).
- Make sure the registered mail id is still active to receive the EPP Code.
Below are the steps you have to follow.
Step 1 – NameCheap Domain List
Login to Your NameCheap Account. On Selecting “Domain List” at left Sidebar, Click on “Manage” appropriate to the domain you would like to transfer.
Step 2 – Sharing and Transfer
Select “Sharing & Transfer”. If your Domain Lock is “ON”, you must Unlock it and Select “Auth Code” to receive the EPP Code to the registrant email address.
As Mentioned in NameCheap:
(From here, you can transfer your domain name out from Namecheap to another registrar. To transfer out, you will need to make sure that Domain Lock is turned OFF and get an Auth Code. After you place the request here, we’ll send your Auth Code to the registrant email address specified for this domain. It may take up to 5 days for the transfer to be completed.)
