Before initiating a domain transfer you need to have a finished transfer order, an authorization code and the domain must be unlocked as active.
1. Order for a Domain Transfer Service
Before starting a domain transfer, you need to make an order for the domain transfer service on SuperHosting.BG’s website. After the payment is confirmed, the domain transfer might be initiated through your customer profile.
2. Authorization Code and Turning off Domain Transfer Ban
Before initiating a transfer, you must have an Authorization EPP key for the respective domain. You also need to turn off the domain transfer ban if there is such one. The domain may not be transferred if these conditions are not met.
You may see the authorization code in the control panel for domain management at the current registrar. If the code is not visible in the current domain management account, you should ask your registrar to provide it to you.
Initiating the Domain Transfer
To initiate the transfer you must log into your customer profile and choose the Start transfer option under the Domain Transfer section.
In this field you should enter the authorization code you obtained from your current registrar.
In case the code is incorrect, please contact your current registrar and request a new authorization code. Afterwards you will be able to initiate the transfer.
After the code has been successfully entered, you must fill in registrant data.
You might change the data or keep the data you already entered.
Carefully check the email address you specified since you will be getting an important email after the transfer is finished.
Setting up DNS Records after the Transfer
If the domain is associated with a hosting account, you should choose what will happen with the domain DNS settings after transferring it to SuperHosting.BG.
- keeping the DNS records;
- automatically replacing the DNS records with those of the hosting account;
- random DNS records setup.
Depending on your choice, DNS settings will be changed automatically and immediately after the domain is transferred to SuperHosting.BG. Domain DNS settings may be also manually set up later, immediately after the domain is transferred to SuperHosting.BG.
After transfer initiation, you may monitor the transfer status in your customer profile. Transfer status details will be available during the transfer procedure. The standard transfer period continues for up to 6 days starting on the date when the verification e-mail is confirmed.
