What does a domain cost?

The price for a domain is defined by the registrars and resellers, and may vary among different providers. It might be beneficial to compare prices before you start registering your domain. Do not forget to check the price for renewal as well, to prevent surprises after the first year when your domain is up for renewal.

How can I transfer my domain name to another provider?

It is very easy to transfer a domain name to another provider. First, request from your current provider the authorisation code and ask them to remove any transfer lock from the domain. Send the authorisation code to your new provider. They will start the transfer. You might receive one or a few e-mails, and at most five days later, the domain is under management of the new provider.

Be careful: when you transfer a domain name, your web hosting and your e-mail is not automatically transferred as well! Contact your new provider for more information.

Note that a transfer cannot be started within 60 days from registration, a previous transfer or an owner change.
