Transfer Steps:

Step 1:
Initially, you need to verify whether the domain name is eligible to transfer. To check its eligibility, you need to sign in to your existing registrar and check whether it follows the initial registration of the domain name that should be at least 60 days ago and the domain has been with your current Registrar for at least 60 days. As per the ICANN's policy on the domain transfers between registrars, domains that are less than 60 days old and are transferred within the last 60 days cannot be transferred.

Step 2:

Next step is to prepare the domain for transfer. Here, you need to unlock your domain while removing the registrar lock you have put on for the security. In this case, you need to obtain the auth code from the current registrar. You need to contact if you are unable to request the EPP code with the registrar.

Step 3:

Now, you need to submit the request transfer through your hostcafeday account. Enter your domain name as well as auth code and click on start transferring and hostcafeday verifies whether the domain is ready to transfer so, will return the results.

The owner will approve the transfer request and the domain will obtain the 'pending transfer' status. So, the transfers will get automatically confirmed within 5-10 days and it gets completed within additional 24-48 hours.

Your domain name is the address you have on the server. Suppose a guest is arriving at your place. If you don’t have the address, then you would have a difficult time finding you.

When you get into the process of domain transfer, the entire domain billing, as well as administration information, also get moved to the new domain registrar.
