    It depends on where you got your domain name in the first place. Who is your "registrar"? In most cases you should be able to simply go the the registrar where you want to move your domain name TO, and request the transfer there. If there are any problems, you'll be notified.

    That's assuming you want to "transfer" your domain name to another registrar.

    If you want to change hosting companies though, that's another matter. For that you simply need to change the DNS settings of your domain name to point to your new hosting company. You can usually do that through a control panel at your domain's registrar.

    I hope that helps. If you want further clarification, please let us know exactly what you want to do... change hosting companies, or transfer your domain name... or both. Providing your domain name would also help as we could lookup where it is currently registered.

    Hi

    What control panel do you use at the moment? some control panels allow you to make a full backup to restore to another host with the same software. For example CPanel

    You need to point your domain to the nameservers of your hosting company i suppose?

    Your domain control panel should have an option called smth like "Transfer DNS to webhost", "Change Nameservers" etc.

    if you do not have access to your domain, you need to ask company who registered the domain for you to provide you with the access to it.
    less is more

    Changing the nameservers is the easiest option as the above poster said or pointing the domain name to the Ip address of the hosting server directly if they don't have nameservers. Your new hosting provider should really provide you with the method they want you to use.

    If you are transferring a domain to another hosting company you will need the name servers for your new hosting company. They are usually something like ns1.hostingcompanyname.com, ns2.hostingcompanyname.com, etc. and are normally sent with your sign-up email.

    After you have the name server names, go to your domain registrar and update the name servers for the domain.

    Have you signed up to the new hosting company using the domain you want to transfer? Is not, you will also need to add the domain to your hosting account.

    If you just want to transfer the domain name to another domain registrar, this is a different matter.
    For a .com, .net, etc. domain, you need to obtain the domains 'transfer secret' (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transfer_secret) from the existing registrar and pass it to your new registrar, who will then transfer the domain over to themselves.
    If it is a .co.uk domain, you need to get the existing registrar to update the domain tag to the new registrars tag (ask the new registrar for their tag), then get the new registrar to transfer the domain over to themselves.

    Login to your domain Registrar's account, they will have a link with "Domain Transfer" option in it.

    There are several variants possible.
    1. You transfer your web site only to your new web hosting provider. In this case you will need to change (update) nameservers of your domain name.
    2. You transfer domain name and site to your new provider. In this case you need to initiate transfer on your domain name registrar.


    In the most cases variant #1 works.

    webEsun, to transfer your domain name, you must have the EPP code or Authorization code. There are 2 ways you can get this:
    1) yourselves by login to the domain manager. If you are the owner of the domain, you have a set of domain login details where you can update your domain information. The EPP code can be retrieved from there.
    2) From your current domain provider. Some domain registrar only allow the domain provider to retrieve the EPP code. If that's the case, you have to go back to your domain provider.
