How to Transfer a Domain Name to ChemiCloud

This article will cover how to transfer a domain name from another provider to ChemiCloud.

Verify that the domain name is eligible for transfer

  • Make sure that the domain has not been registered  or transferred in the last 60 days
  • Disable ‘Whois/Privacy Protection’
  • Make sure that you have access to the registrant email address
  • Ensure the domain is not in ‘Redemption Grace Period’ or ‘Pending Delete’ period.

Prepare your domain for transfer

  • Unlock your domain – remove the Registrar lock you may have set for added security;
  • Obtain the Auth/EPP code from the current Registrar:

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 them to provide it.

How to Initiate a domain transfer from your ChemiCloud account

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 Bluehost.

1) Head over to our Domain Transfer page and enter the domain name you wish to transfer to ChemiCloud and the domain Transfer Code (EPP) in the appropriate text field (your current domain registrar should provide this code).

2) Click the “Order Now“ button.

3) 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. Once the domain name transfer is complete, you will receive a confirmation by email.

Confirm the transfer with your former Registrar

Once you have submitted the domain transfer, your current Registrar will be notified of the transfer and will, in turn, send you an email confirming the transfer order. Approve the email accordingly.

NOTE: You must approve the transfer within five days. (If you do not do so, the Registrar will assume that you do not wish to proceed with the transfer, and the transfer will be canceled).

A domain name transfer can take up to six (6) days.
