Up: Transfers

Transferring Between Accounts

If a domain is already with pair Domains, you can change the ownership without needing to pay for a transfer. Instead, domain names can be moved between accounts. There is no charge for moving domain names between accounts or for creating new accounts.

To move a domain from one account to another account, you can log into the account that currently manages the domain:

  1. Log into the Domain Name Management System
  2. Select Preferences from the drop-down navigation menu
  3. Click Move Domains to Another Account
  4. Select the domains to move, enter the account name for the destination account, and click Submit
  5. Enter the password for the current account, and click Submit

If you need to create a new account for the domain name, you can follow these steps:

  1. Log into the Domain Name Management System
  2. Select Preferences from the drop-down navigation menu
  3. Click Move Domains to Another Account
  4. Click Create a New Account
  5. Fill in the Registrant (Owner) information for the new account
  6. Choose an account name and password, and click Create
  7. Select the domains to move, enter the account name from the previous step, and click Submit
  8. Enter the password for the current account, and click Submit

We will send an e-mail to the current Registrant Email asking to confirm the move. After the current Registrant confirms the move, we will send an e-mail to the new Registrant Email asking to confirm the move. The move will not be completed until both the current Registrant and new Registrant confirm it.

Please Note: Moving a domain name to a different account will  trigger a request to verify contact information on the new account. You can find more information about verifying contact information in our Knowledge Base.

Please Note: Domains with Weebly sites cannot be moved this way. If you have not done much work on the site yet, you can cancel the Weebly site, and then you can move the domain.

If you need to keep the current site, we can move all Weebly sites associated with an account to a separate account that has never used Weebly before. However, we cannot move individual Weebly sites. So if you have multiple Weebly sites on an account, we can move all of them or none of them. If you want to move all of them, you can contact us to move the domains. Unfortunately, it is not possible to move domains to Weebly sites if the destination account has used Weebly before.
