DOMAIN TRANSFER

Transferring multiple domains? Get started now.

Why transfer?

You’re probably here because your current domain provider isn’t giving you the service you need, you just want to consolidate your properties or it’s just time for a change. Our goal is to make this process as simple as possible so that you can get on with your life and move forward.

Domain Forwarding and Masking

Direct any domain name you own to your website. Anyone who types that domain name into their browser is taken directly to your website.

Total DNS Control

Manage your domain nameserver (DNS) records and set your email, FTP, sub-domains and website location all from one control panel.

Status Alerts

Monitor the status of your domain and get instant alerts if there’s been a change.

Auto Renew Protection

No need to watch expiration dates to make sure you renew on time! Auto renew keeps your domains, hosting, website builders, and other products in your name and under your control.

Domain Locking

Domain locking prevents accidental or intentional transfers of domain ownership and stops anyone from redirecting your nameservers.

Change of Registration

Assign your domain name to someone else or change the contacts for your domain online anytime.

Frequently asked questions

At Websquared, Domain transfers are charged per name at a flat fee, so you pay nothing beyond this initial cost and ICANN registration, where appropriate. We also let you keep any time left on your current registrations — and throw in a free year of registration for each transfer*. Depending on how many domains you’re moving, this could add up to significant savings.

Domains can be transferred almost any time. However, ICANN prohibits domain transfers within 60 days of registration or prior transfer (.au excepted). ICANN policy

  1. Unlock each of the domain names you’d like to transfer. Contact your current registrar for details on how to do this.

  2. You may need an authorization code (sometimes called a transfer key or EPP code) from your current registrar. This isn’t necessary in all cases, such as when transferring country-code Top-level Domain Names (ccTLDs). If the authorization codes aren’t shown in your account manager, ask your current registrar to email them to you.

  3. Buy Websquared domain transfers for up to 500 of your domain names at once, listing each one on a separate line in our bulk domain transfer tool. If the extension you’d like to transfer isn’t listed, you can’t transfer that domain name to us.

NOTE: If you select this option and are not using Off-site DNS or a Premium DNS transfer template, we park the domain name on our parking nameservers and create a default zone file in your account with us. You can use the Zone File Editor in the DNS Manager to customize the new zone file. For more information, see Managing DNS for Your Domain Names.

Please note there are special instructions for transferring .uk, .ca, .eu, .es, .se and .au domain names to Websquared.

Most domain transfers take between five and seven days to complete. The time it takes varies depending on the extension. For details on transferring country-code Top-level Domains (ccTLDs), go to About ccTLDs and click the help article for your domain extension.

  1. Log in to My Account on Websquared.

  2. Next to Domains, click the Launch button.

  3. In the upper left, pull down the Domains menu and click Pending Transfers. You should see the following info for each transfer domain name:

    Status — This tells you where in the transfer process you are. Hover over the progress bar for any transfer, click the ? icon, or click the Action Required or Error link that displays for details.

    Admin Email — This field shows the email address linked with that domain name.

Upon the expiration of your domain, you will be charged annually to maintain the domain. The price is the then-current annual retail price applicable to the domain.
