Information Regarding Domain Transfers

Information you will need from your current provider

Before transferring your domain to MyHost, ensure that you have the following:

  • Your domain name
  • The EPP/Auth code for the domain
  • Current nameservers (optional but very useful if you are not changing web hosts)

For help obtaining an EPP or authorisation code, refer to your current provider or use one of the links below: 

Transferring your domain to MyHost

To transfer your domain, follow the steps below:

  1. If you already have a MyHost account, Login. (If you're new to MyHost, you will need to create an account as part of the transfer process.)
  2. Open Domains > Transfer Domains to Us from the main menu.
  3. Enter your domain and EPP/Auth code and click Add to Cart

This will take you to the Domains configuration page, where you can:

  • Add a Web Hosting or Email Hosting package.
  • Add ID protection which will hide your contact information on a WHOIS search.
  • Configure the nameservers that will be used once the domain is transferred. The default MyHost nameservers are shown by default, but you can add yours instead. (When using MyHost nameservers, ensure that you have a DNS zone set up with us prior to the transfer to avoid downtime.)

Once you're finished, complete the checkout process and the domain transfer will begin. We’ll let you know as soon as your domain transfer is complete, which might take a few minutes (.nz domains) or a few days - How long does it take to transfer my domain over?

Transferring is free, but you might need to renew your domain

Domain transfers are free but, in the cases listed below, the domain will need to be renewed upon transfer:

  • International domain transfers
  • NZ domains with less than 30 days until expiry

Your renewal will be added on after your domain's current expiry date.
