Domain transfer is to transfer a domain name of your choice from one registrar to another or to a new owner
in case you decides to sell your domain. As registrar is only responsible for the management of your domain records, this
transfer should in no way affect your website, relevant email or DNS.

have admin access to the domain and have a registrar that you want to transfer the domain to. While domain transfer is a
straight forward procedure yet it confuses a lot of people. I am going to show you how things gets done and don’t

to transfer your domain and apply for domain Transfer. Most registrars these days have a dedicated
section for domain transfers. Once you select this option and start processing you will be asked to create
an account and pay for the domain transfer fee
The registrar you are transferring the domain name to will send an email to the domain owner
or administrator confirming the domain transfer. If its you or some other owner you are buying domain
from will get an email will a link to proceed transfer. You will have to respond within 5-7 calendar days
or the domain will not be transferred.

to the administrator which looks like below
