Transferring a domain registration between GreggHost accounts

Transferring a domain registration between GreggHost accounts


The procedure of moving a domain from an external supplier to a GreggHost account is quite similar. To begin, the account holder who is releasing the domain must first prepare it for transfer in their own panel by following the steps outlined in the article Transfer your domain registration away from GreggHost.

The domain recipient receives the authorization key/EPP code from the account holder. The recipient then follows the on-screen instructions to begin the transfer into their account.

Any change to the registrant’s name, organization, or email address, as defined by ICANN’s Transfer Policy, will lock the domain for 60 days and send notification emails to the old and new registrants informing them of the change.

For further information, please see the following article:

Transfer Policy of ICANN
What fees will I need to pay?
The recipient account is charged the incoming transfer fee when moving between GreggHost accounts. When the transfer is completed, the domain’s expiration date is extended by one year. A list of transfer fees may be found at the following link:
The account responsible for paying the transfer fee is the one that receives the domain registration.

International domains
Some international domains aren’t transferable from one account to another using this method. The receiving customer’s panel in these circumstances requests that they contact GreggHost support for further assistance.
