How to successfully transfer your domain name to us
Posted by - NA - on 2006-10-16 12:59:48 PM

Transferring a domain name to us from another registrar is easy to do by following the below instructions.

If your domain name ends in .UK you'll need to let us know you'll be transferring it to us and then simply ask your current registrar to transfer or release the domain name to our tag, EASY-INTERNET. Transfers of .UK domain names are usually very fast (within minutes) and we'll receive notification of the transfer to associate the domain name with your account. To do this you will need to:

  1. Log in to the client area at http://my.freevirtualservers.com/clients/
  2. Click on Order
  3. Click on Transfer Domain
  4. In the domain name field please enter your domain name without the extension, for example if your domain name is example.co.uk just enter example
  5. In the Extension field please select your domain name extension. If your domain name is example.co.uk you can select the .co.uk extension
  6. Click the Go button
  7. If the domain is showing as available (this does not mean it is publicly available, just that it is available for transfer) please select the cost/time frame you want and click Order Now
  8. Now ask your current registrar to transfer or release the domain name to our tag, EASY-INTERNET
  9. Once it is transferred in we will automatically associate it with your account and update the nameservers

For almost all other domain name types, a different set of instructions apply.

We can automatically process transfers for domain names with the following extensions: .com .net .org .biz .info .eu .name .tv

If you have a domain name with a different extension please contact us and let us know your domain name to find out whether we'll be able to accept a transfer or not.

You can easily start your transfer via the client area:

  1. Log in to the client area at http://my.freevirtualservers.com/clients/
  2. Click on the Transfer In entry in the Domain Names menu
  3. In the Domain name field please enter your domain name without its extension, for instance if your domain name is example.com enter just example
  4. In the Extension field please select your domain name extension. If your domain name is example.com you can select the .com extension
  5. If the Please include your transfer authorisation key (EPP code) field is visible then we will need a transfer key from you, please enter it. Some extensions (such as .eu) don't require a transfer key
  6. Click the Continue & Transfer button
  7. An invoice will be created for your transfer; make payment using one of the available methods
  8. Once payment has been received we will submit a transfer request for you automatically

Most transfers will take 5 or 6 days as long as the domain name is unlocked, the transfer is approved promptly, and there are no problems with the losing registrar.

During the transfer you will be able to view its status via the Transfer Status entry in the Domain Names menu.

Hello Joe,

If you are just looking at changing the nameservers on your domain name (i.e. not actually transferring the domain name to us, but keeping it at your existing supplier), then the nameservers for your account are included in your welcome email and within the "Domain Names" section of your cPanel control panel.

I applied to transfer my domain but didn't realise my admin contact for the domain was on vacation and didn't check emails consequently didn't respond to the confirmation email before the relevant date. Can I apply for the domain to be transferred again without paying the fee again or do I need to pay the fee again. I hope I don't need to pay the fee again as nothing happened with the domain apart from one email.

Hi there
I have a client who has a domain & hosting with 1and1 and site is ranked well in Google. If we transfer the domain to a your hosting = will this affect the Google ranking??
Or is it better to leave the domain with 1and1 7 change the nameservers??

Hope you can help, as many of my clients are often concerned by this
