What is a domain name?
A domain name is your own web address for your website. You can compare it with a street address, necessary to be found online. It exists of a name (like Hoasted) and an extension or TLD (like .com), which form together the complete domain name (hoasted.com). As soon as you register a domain name with us, you are the only owner of your unique website address.
New domain extensions
Lately thousands of new extensions have been launched, like .amsterdam, .shop, .hotel, .club, etcetera. Take your chance and register the domain names you choose in combination with a large list of extensions you can choose.
How a domain transfer functions
You transfer a domain if you want to switch to another hosting provider. You change the company where you have registered your domain name, where as the owner of the domain name (you) remains the same. The only one who can initiate a domain name transfer is the owner of the domain name. The process below describes the steps you have to take in order to have your domain transferred smoothly.
Contact your current provider
Start ordering domain
Once you received the transfer code, you can start ordering on our website. Type in your domain name and click transfer. There you fill in the transfer code you received from your current provider. The ordering process must be completed before the domain transfer process can start.
Confirm the transfer
Dependent on the extension and your current registrant, the migration process can take anything between less than an hour up to 7 days. In this phase there is nothing you have to do. Once the transfer has been completed successfully, you receive an e-mail to confirm that. As of that moment the domain transfer process has been completed and you can go ahead.
