Can I transfer my domain from Namecheap?

Last updated on September 24, 2022 @ 6:54 pm

So, are you thinking about transferring your domain from Namecheap? If so, you’re in luck – we’ve got the details you need to make the transfer process as smooth as possible.

First and foremost, it’s important to note that Namecheap does not support transferring domains outside of its own name server infrastructure. This means that if you’re looking to transfer your domain to another provider, you’ll need to do so through their respective transfer services.

Once you’ve selected a provider and registered for their service, the next step is to contact Namecheap support and initiate the transfer process.

PRO TIP: Namecheap domain transfers are not instant. It can take up to 10 days for the transfer to complete, during which time your website may be down. Additionally, Namecheap does not offer free domain transfers. You will have to pay a fee of $9.95 to transfer your domain to another registrar.

Once the domain has been transferred, you’ll need to update your DNS records and redirect any traffic that’s still pointing to your old Namecheap account.

Finally, be sure to contact your old Namecheap account holders to let them know the domain has been transferred and to provide any updated contact information.

In conclusion, transferring a domain from Namecheap is a relatively straightforward process, but does require the use of a third-party provider. If you’re looking to make the switch, be sure to consult with your chosen provider first and make sure all of your details are in order.
