Transferring Your Domain Name To WebStarts
In the event you chose to add an existing domain name to your website, you are going to want to transfer that domain name to us as soon as you can.
The first thing you will want to do (if not already done) is edit the Name Servers for your domain name to point to ours. This would be done with the company where you originally registered the domain. You can find our Name Servers listed below…
Once done, the domain name should start working with your WebStarts built website, usually within a few hours, but could take up to 24 hours.
Transferring your domain
To start the actual transfer process, you will need to unlock the domain name and have your domain authorization code sent to you. You will need the authorization code as you will use it to confirm that you do in fact want to complete the transfer to WebStarts. Once done, you can initiate the domain transfer from within your account...
- Click the My Domains tab, located in the drop down found in the upper right corner of your account dashboard.
- Edit the domain you wish to transfer in by clicking the appropriate pencil icon listed next to it.
- Click the Transfer To WebStarts link to initiate your domain transfer.
This will initiate the transfer to us and will generate the transfer authorization email to you where you will authorize the transfer by entering your Authorization Code. Once authorized, the transfer usually completes within 7 to 10 days.
