The first step in your web hosting transfer involves making a DNS request to your new hosting provider. You can usually do this through the ‘Net’ form on your web hosting provider’s ‘My Hosting’ page. Or, if you prefer, you can call them on the phone number included on your account. Either way, once your DNS request has been completed, you will receive an email reply confirming that your request has been processed. (The good news is that some companies now offer automatic email responses.)

Once your DNS has been updated, you may then choose to update your private SSL certificate. This may take a few hours, depending upon the popularity and availability of your domain name. This will also be contingent upon the new host that you choose. Depending on their SSL certificate provider, this step may take up to 2 business days. Your certificate will remain valid during the entire life of your transfer, so you don’t have to worry about renewing it after your transfer date.

When your private SSL certificate has been issued, you will be able to access your site from your new host. Depending on the method of transfer that you choose, this step may take only a few moments. After your domain name and web hosting information has been transferred, you will see a new page in your web browser. The details of your new host are clearly indicated in the new ‘about me’ page that you will view.

Finally, you will be required to register your domain name with your new hosting company. Depending on the methods of transfer that you use, this may be accomplished within minutes. You will be given your username and password by your hosting company upon registration. This is typically how clients are transferred to a new host. If you chose a manual method of transfer, they should be able to assist you in setting up your domain name with your hosting company.

As you can see, there are several different ways that a DNS transfer can occur. In most cases, all three steps listed above should be completed in order for your DNS to be successfully transferred to a new host. However, if for some reason you are unable to complete any of these steps or you are unsure of how to go about it, you can find support with an online DNS service. These services will assist you every step of the way in accomplishing this important move.
