How can I transfer my domain to WPX?

Transferring your domain to the same hosting provider helps manage your online business more conveniently since it spares you the need to communicate with two separate providers.

In terms of price, you need to renew your domain for another year with your new registrar – WPX. There is no actual cost for the transfer or any additional fees.

Domain transfer and website migration are two different operations. If you want to host your website with WPX but keep the domain name in another provider, that is possible.

Transferring a domain to WPX is possible, as long the domain itself is NOT a country code top-level domain (such as .uk, .co.uk, .it, .de, .com.au, etc) as we no longer support them on a registrar level.
We can host your websites with those specific TLDs, however, we won’t be able to manage your domain name here.

You can request a migration of your website and our Migration experts will take care of everything for you.

You can check the available TLDs here to make sure that you can transfer the domain name to WPX.

Domain transfer requirements

  • You need to have a valid EPP key from your current domain registrar for this domain;
  • The domain should be unlocked in your current domain registrar;
  • You have to wait 60 days after the domain registration before proceeding with any transfers (as per ICANN policies).

The DNS records cannot be changed when the domain transfer process is ongoing. If you need to make any DNS changes, please apply those before you start the domain transfer.

Moving domain names between registers may take some time and once you initiate it, you may not be able to edit the DNS until it is over.

Step 1. Log in to your WPX account.

You can log in to your WPX account here.

Step 2. Go to the Domains menu.

Once you log in to your WPX account, select My Services (1) Domains (2) Buy new domains (3). You can also use the following link directly.

Step 3. Select the transfer option.

To start the transfer, search (1) for the domain and click on the Transfer (2) button next to it.

Select the green cart to start the checkout process.

Step 4. Checkout process.

To ensure a successful domain transfertwo crucial steps mustst be followed: obtaining the EPP Auth code from your current domain registrar and ensuring that the domain is unlocked. Neglecting these steps will hinder the domain transfer process.

Fill in the EPP Auth code (1), and then you have the option to either order a hosting package (2) with that domain name or continue (3) without a new hosting service.

Check if everything looks okay with the order and select the Checkout button.

Step 5. Pay the invoice for the transfer.

Once you click on the checkout button, an invoice for the transfer will be generated. You need to pay the invoice to start the domain transfer process.

You can check your invoices from the following link.

The domain should be on status Pending Transfer in your domains list. If the domain is on a different status, please contact the WPX support team.

That’s it. If everything is completed correctly, the transfer should be completed within 7 days.
