Q1. Can I Transfer To Another Domain Registrar?

A1. Yes, you can. It does not matter that wherever at what domain registrar you registered your domain name originally, you can make it register to some other registrar the following year. To do this, you have to first visit your domain Transfer Tool and make a simple transfer request. Once done, you will then be required to answer a simple confirmation email sent to the “admin contact.” Once authorization of your domain name completed, you will be able to transfer your domain name.
