A “Domain Transfer” means to transfer registration of the domain name from one registrar to another. It is NOT the same as transferring hosting or switching hosting from one web host to another.

If a domain is less than 60 days old it cannot be transferred to another registrar.

If there is a Registrar-Lock on your domain at another registrar, you will have to remove the Registrar-Lock before you can transfer it to Mumbai Hosting. To do this, you will have to go to the web site where you bought and registered your domain, and log in with the username and password you received there when you registered your domain. Find their area for domain management and remove the registrar-lock. Contact your domain registrar’s support department if you have difficulty with this.

If you have full control over your domain name and it doesn’t expire soon, you can just change its DNS settings to the ones mentioned in our welcome email.

However, if you are not in control of your domain name, or your domain name will expire soon, we recommend that you transfer it to our registrar.

In order to transfer a domain name between registrars, you need the authorization code specific to that domain name.  These codes are also referred to as ‘Auth code or ‘EPP code’ or ‘domain secret’, and need to be requested from your domain registrar. Depending upon the registry the domain is registered with and the TLD of the domain, there may be steps that differ in how you obtain your EPP code.

There is no transfer fee when transfering a name to Mumbai Hosting. However, you will be charged a one year registration fee which adds a year to the registration of your domain name. (for example, if your domain name expires on January 1st 2021, and you transfer your domain name to Mumbaihosting.com, you will be charged the regular 1 year registration fee for the TLD, and your domain will now expire January 1st 2022)

The transfer takes up to 5-7 business days. During the transfer your domain name will be functional.
