If your domain is registered with your host, you need to transfer your domain name to another registrar. It’s best best practice for your domain registrar and host to be separate. My domain names are currently registered with my old website host; my current website host is both my host and my domain registrar. So I’m going to be transferring my domain name from a web host to a new domain registrar. I have decided to transfer my domains to Google Domains. Google Domains is a domain registrar; it is not a website host.
Before you transfer your domain name to a new registrar or host – just like reading a recipe all the way through before you start baking the cookies – it’s a good idea to read all the directions from start to finish! Also, just as it’s not a good idea to mix up a triple batch of cookies when you’v never baked cookies before, if you have more than one domain, transfer just one domain to start with, to make sure you do everything right….
