How To Transfer A Domain From FastComet

In this tutorial, we will cover how to transfer a domain from FastComet to a different domain provider.

Things to Consider Before Transferring Your Domain Away from FastComet

  1. Before going further with the domain transfer, it is important to know that when a domain name is transferred away, the name servers associated with your domain stay the same during the transfer from one registrar to the other. So for example, if your domain name is using the default name servers of FastComet, those name servers will be preserved during the transfer and you won’t be able to change the name servers until the transfer is complete.
    This means that if you switched to another web hosting provider, and your website was migrated already, before initiating a domain transfer make sure that your domain name is pointed to the name servers of the new provider. As we previously mentioned – you won’t be able to change the name servers until the transfer is complete.
  2. Domain Name Registrations and Web Hosting are separate services. The domain name transfer process will not automatically migrate your website. If you are a ChemiCloud customer and you wish to transfer your website from FastComet, please submit a migration request from your client area. Our migrations experts will move your existing sites and emails free of charge, seamlessly, and with no downtime.
  3. The transfer of your domain name will include the renewal of your domain with another year. So for instance, if your domain is due to expire on the 1st of January 2025, once the transfer is complete, the new expiration date will be the 1st of January 2026.
  4. Make sure that the domain has not been registered or transferred in the last 60 days.
  5. Make sure that the domain is in the  ‘Active Period’ and not in the ‘Redemption Grace Period’ or ‘Pending Delete’ period.

How To Transfer A Domain From FastComet

Step 1: Log in to your FastComet client area.

Step 2: Click on the Domains tab on the left-hand side menu.

 

Step 3: When the domain management page opens, click Manage Domain for the domain you’d like to transfer away.

Step 4: In order to obtain your EPP Code (transfer code) click on the “Get EPP Code” section of the menu.

FastComet Domain EPP Code

Note

Auth/EPP codes are required for all .com, .net, .org, .us, .biz, .info, .me, .co, .io, .ca, .tv, .in, .mobi, .cc, .pe, .com.pe, .net.pe, .org.pe, .tech, .top, .party, .loan, .faith and other new gTLD domains. If you cannot request an EPP code in account with your Registrar, contact them and ask to provide it to you.

Step 5. Copy your authorization code.

Step 6. The next step is to unlock your domain name. In order to unlock your domain name, click on the “Registrar Lock” section of the menu.

Step 7. Under Options, click on “Disable Registrar Lock“.

How to Request a Domain Transfer to ChemiCloud

Once you have your EPP code and have confirmed the domain is unlocked and privacy is disabled, follow the steps to initiate the domain transfer.

We’ll assume that you have already unlocked the domain at its current registrar and that you also have the authorization code (sometimes called an EPP key) from FastComet.

1) Log into your lab then go to the Domains section of your lab’s dashboard and then click the Transfer in a domain under the actions area.

2) Enter the domain name you wish to transfer to ChemiCloud and the domain Transfer Code (EPP) in the appropriate text field (this code should be provided by your current domain registrar).

3) Click the “Order Now“ button.

4) You will be asked if you require hosting as well. Click the “Continue“ button to finalize only the domain transfer, without hosting.

Click the ‘Checkout‘ button to send your domain transfer request.

A domain name transfer can take up to six (6) days to complete. Once the domain name transfer is complete, you will receive a confirmation by email.

That’s it! Now you know how to transfer your domain from FastComet to a different domain provider.
