How to transfer my domain name?

Transferring your domain name to a new provider is very simple. Let us explain exactly how that works.

1. Register your domain name with a new provider

To start your transfer, order the domain name from your new provider. If you want to switch to Easyhost, you can start to order the domain name via our website. The system will recognize that the domain name you are searching for is already taken, so you can choose to "transfer".

Transfercode

Provide your transfer code during the order process to make clear that you authorize the transfer of your domain name. You can do that on the last step of the ordering process. Or you could also e-mail the code to activation@easyhost.be.

Where can I find the transfer code of my domain name?

Check the owner's names

Before you finalize the order, check the owner's details. By default, we use the input of the invoicing data for this. If necessary, you can use it for free in the last step of the ordering process (see screenshot).

2. Update DNS settings of your domain name

The transfer of the domain name is actually purely an administrative thing, which has no immediate technical consequences.

But after the transfer, your previous provider will in time deactivate the DNS settings of your domain name.

These DNS settings determine which server is responsible for processing the website and the mail traffic for that domain. If the DNS settings are not configured correctly, the e-mail function and website go offline.

It is therefore important to update them with your new provider so that your website and e-mail continue to work smoothly.
