Whats steps are necessary to transfer a domain, when moving hosting.
Firstly, you do not need to transfer your domain to us to host your website site with us; you only need to change your nameservers.
However, all you usually need to transfer a domain is your EPP Code (sometimes called Domain-Secret)
However, should you wish to transfer your domain, we recommend that you perform the following steps in this order.
- Upload your website here first
- Change the nameservers at the old registrar
- Initiate a domain transfer
If you follow these three steps in this order, there should be no "gap" in domain availability.
