Transferring Domain Names from Another Registrar




Transferring your existing domains to aWebpage is quick, simple and comes with many benefits. Keep all your domains together in the one account and administer them 24/7 with the powerful management features provided by our customer console.
To transfer a domain name, simply create an account and use the Domain Transfer tool inside your aWebpage client account.

Transfering a domain name to another registar does not change who owns the domain, only which registar takes care of the domain names configuration.
