You can save days off your domain registration transfer if you know this one little trick! After preparing my domains for transfer, and initiating the transfer at my new domain registrar, I waited 4 days for the transfer to be approved. It wasn’t happening. And I only had one more day before my new domain registrar, Google Domains, would stop the process.
Finally called BlueHost support and got someone very knowledgeable that told me a little known trick – I could approve immediate transfer of my domains myself!
How to approve transfer of domains away from Bluehost
In BlueHost, in your account go to:
> select the domain name you’re transferring.
> Click here to approve the transfer.
During the process of approving the transfer of my main domain, I got an email from BlueHost to follow a link to verify my information with WhoIs.
