Transferring (.com) domains to WESH UK

Transferring a .com name to us needs to be done in 2 stages as follows:

Your .com domain MUST be unlocked for this entire process and since the 28th of October 2006, you will now need an EPP key (Authorisation code) which will be provided by the losing registrar.

YOUR .COM DOMAIN NAME MUST BE MORE THAN 60 DAYS OLD!
If your .com domain name is not more than 60 days old and you order a transfer, it will fail but we will re-initiate the transfer for you once the domain name has reached 61 days old. You will not need to do anything except ensure the domain name remains unlocked!

Note - Copy your website

If you are transferring your website to us along with your .com domain name then you will need to purchase web hosting with us in advance. When purchasing our web hosting, select hosting only without a domain (I will use My Existing Domain and update My Nameservers only)

> Click on "Quick order" from the menu above

We will then activate your account for you and email you all the account details so you can upload your website to our servers, setup all your email accounts, database's, and anything else you wish to transfer in advance.

Stage 1 - Re-point your DNS

Once you have an exact copy of your website on our servers, you will need to log-in to your current domain registration company account & change your domain names DNS Name Servers.

If you do not have the access to change your nameservers then simply contact your current support department and request them to change your doman nameservers to the ones in your welcome email.

Stage 2 - Order the Transfer your domain name

Now all you need to do is place your order for a domain name transfer through our website (Transfer My Existing Domain)

Your domain name must be more than 60 days old, unlocked, and you should have your EPP key from the losing registrar / old host.

When you reach the final stage of the order simply enter your current login details for our billing system to add the domain to your account.

Within 72 hours you will receive an automated email requesting your authorisation to transfer the domain name which you must respond to.

If you need any assistance with this, let us know, were here to help.

Once this is done your domain name will now be managed WESH UK and we will bill you for it every 2 years with 1 extra year added to your domain.

Domain transfers for all .com names cost £10, which is non-refundable should you change your mind.
Were happy to help with your transfer, regardless of how many attempts it takes.
