Transfering a domain to Bluehost is a process that is done frequently and can be a bit confusing for beginners. This article will provide a step-by-step guide on how to complete the process quickly and easily.
What is the Process for Transferring a Domain to Bluehost?
To transfer a domain to Bluehost, the first step is to review your contact information. Domains cannot be transferred within 60-days of being registered, renewed, or transferred. It is also important to update the privacy settings of your domain to allow the transfer.
Next, log into your Bluehost Domain Manager and click on Transfer in the submenu at the top of the page. Enter the domain you want to transfer to your Bluehost account without the “www”. You will be asked to enter the Authorization Code associated with the domain. This code can be obtained from your current domain registrar.
Once you have entered the domain and the Authorization Code, the transfer process will begin. It can take up to five days for the process to complete. Some registrars may allow you to expedite the process by manually approving the transfer. You can check the progress of the transfer by logging into your Bluehost account.
