However, it is a straightforward process that can be done with the help of a domain management tool, such as DanumHost Limited. In this post, we will walk you through the process of transferring a domain name in DanumHost.
Step 1: Log into your DanumHost account to begin. This can typically be done by visiting your website's URL followed by "/whmcs" (e.g. "www.danumhost.co.uk/clientarea"). You will then be prompted to enter your DanumHost username and password.
Step 2: Navigate to the "Domains" section once you have logged in, you will be taken to the DanumHost dashboard. This will take you to the domain management page where you can view, register, transfer, and manage your domains.
Step 3: Locate the domain you want to transfer on the domain management page, you will see a list of all the domains that are associated with your WHMCS account. Locate the domain that you want to transfer and click on the "Transfer" button next to it.
Step 4: Confirm the transfer details You will now be prompted to confirm the details of the transfer. This will include the domain name, the current registrar, and the new registrar. Verify that all the details are correct and then click on the "Continue" button.
Step 5: Obtain the domain's EPP code to initiate the transfer, you will need to obtain the domain's EPP code (co.uk and .uk domains will only require the IPS tag you are transferring to. Our IPS is PRD-IN). This is a unique code that is used to verify your ownership of the domain. You can obtain this code by contacting your current registrar or by checking the domain management interface provided by your current registrar.
Step 6: Enter the EPP code and initiate the transfer Once you have obtained the EPP code, enter it into the appropriate field in the DanumHost interface. Then, click on the "Initiate Transfer" button to start the transfer process.
Step 7: Approve the transfer after you have initiated the transfer, you will need to approve it. This is typically done by clicking on a link in an email that is sent to the administrative contact for the domain. Once you have approved the transfer, the process is complete.
Step 8: You can monitor the status of the transfer by checking the domain management page in DanumHost. The transfer process can take up to 7 days to complete, depending on the registrar. Once the transfer is complete, the domain will be listed as "Active" and will be under the control of the new registrar. If you are transferring a co.uk or .uk then this will be done instantly if all the details you have entered are an exact match.
In conclusion, transferring a domain name in DanumHost is a straightforward process that can be done with the help of a few simple steps. By following the above instructions, you will be able to transfer your domain name quickly and easily. Remember to obtain the domain's EPP code and approve the transfer before the process is complete.
