Transfer domain refers to the process of changing the registrar of your domain name.

When you move your domain name to Zen Hosting, you’ll enjoy cheap domain name renewals and our no hidden fees guarantee, which you won’t find at other web hosting service providers. Plus, you’ll be backed by masterly technical support from our Australian Zen Masters.

ICANN regulations prohibit the transfer of domain names registered or previously transferred in the last 60 days.

If that’s not you, you can transfer domain name to Zen Hosting now. It’s easy to do and if your domain name ends in .au, the transfer is free!

How to initiate transfer domain name

Hover your cursor over Domain Names in the menu at the top of the Zen Hosting home page and choose Transfer a Domain in the dropdown menu.

Then, type in the name of the domain you want to transfer.

For example, if was to be transferred, you would type yourdomain in the field, choose from the dropdown menu, then click the Transfer button.

Click the large, blue Continue button to proceed.

On the next page, you’ll be asked to enter your domain name’s EPP code (or domain password). This code can be obtained from your current registrar.

Enter the code and click the check boxes next to DNS management and Email Forwarding, which are free features.

DNS management lets you take control and modify the DNS entries associated with your domain name. Email forwarding allows you to forward emails to an alternate email account/s of your choice.

To keep your personal details out of public directories, check the box next to ID protection, which costs just $9.99 per year at Zen Hosting ( and other domain exclusions apply).

Backed by full service from our Zen Masters, Zen Hosting has cheap web hosting, business web hosting and reseller hosting with no contract and monthly payment option. If you also want Zen Hosting to provide your web hosting, enter in the Nameserver1 field and in the Nameserver2 field. Otherwise, do not alter these fields. If you choose another web hosting provider, please contact them for their nameserver information.

Click the large, blue Continue button, then click the green Checkout button on the next page.

Enter your personal information and payment details, then click Complete Order.

If payment is required, you can pay via PayPal or EFT.

Now it’s time to check your email account.  Please take a closer look at the emails you receive from Zen Hosting.  One email will ask you to click on a link to approve the domain name transfer.  Your current domain name registrar may also send you an email to advise that you’ve initiated a transfer domain request.

It usually takes two days to complete the transfer domain name process for a .au domain name. Other domain names can take up to seven days.

Thanks for reading and happy transferring your domain!
