To transfer a domain to CloudHost, follow these simple steps:
Log into your Bluehost domain manager/account
Choose Domains in the main menu at the top of the page
Scroll down and select the domain you want to transfer from the list on the left
Note: Several tabs for the domain will appear to the right, which you’ll use to view and update your settings. These tabs are:
Main, Renewal Options, Contacts, Privacy Options, Name Servers, Transfer EPP and Lock
If you only see three tabs then the domain is already registered elsewhere. You can view the domain’s registrar in the Main tab.
Privacy, if you have it, must be paused (disabled) for the transfer to be successful. Pausing privacy unblocks your domain’s contact information in the public WHOIS database so the new registrar can contact you regarding the transfer.
- Click the Privacy Options
- If privacy is enabled, click Pause Domain Privacy.
Unlock the Domain
Domains are locked by default to prevent unauthorized transfers. You must unlock the domain before it can be transferred to a new registrar.
- Click the Lock
- If the domain is locked, click Unlock.
Obtain EPP Code
Next, you need the EPP code, which other registrars may refer to as the Authorization or Auth code. It’s essentially a unique password for the domain, made up of letters, numbers, and special characters, which you’ll give to the new registrar (CloudHost) to authorize the transfer.
- Click the Transfer EPP tab to find the Auth/EPP code for your domain.
- Copy the code so you can give it to the new registrar (CloudHost) to initiate the transfer request.
Initiate your domain transfer through CloudHost:
Now your domain is ready to be transferred. Register an account with CloudHost, provide your domain name and EPP code, add to cart, configure your domain and place an order. Then wait for some minutes for your order to be approved.
