Transfer My Domain to Other Registrar

My domain is in process for transfer to other registrar. I do it for some reason :

  1. Learn how this process work in technical perspective
  2. The price, it’s cheaper than my original registrar 🙂
  3. Easy to manage, only single place of payment for domain and hosting

In general process to transfer domain involve 3 part :

1. Me, as domain holder

2. Current registrar

3. My new registrar

Steps in details are :

1. I log to my new registrar, ask for transfer domain, they will ask one information from current registrar in my case : Domain Auth Code


Just copy paste that information to provided form ( in my new registrar), this information needed to make sure that I’m as domain holder request for the change.

2. After completing process transfer, I got email from my new registrar to activate process transfer via email, here the email sample :
