Frequently Asked Questions
How long will the domain transfer take?
Domain transfers can take anywhere from 2 hours to 8 days to complete. The exact time-frame depends on the domain’s TLD and the time required for your current registrar to complete the process.
What about downtime, and nameservers?
If you are hosting the DNS for the domain on your own, or with another webhosting company, your nameservers will be transferred over – and there shouldn’t be any downtime for the domain.
If you use your registrar’s default nameservers, and want to avoid downtime during transfer, we advise the following:
Will I lose the remaining time I have with my current registrar?
No, the remaining time that you have with your current registrar will not be lost, it gets carried over. Plus, your domain will be renewed for one year as part of the transfer.
