How do existing Domain names get transferred?

If you have a previously registered domain the process is very similar to that of the newly registered domain.

Upon registering your domain you will be requested to select that either we transfer your domain or you self-manage it

We transfer: This option enables us to complete the transfer process for you. We manage the DNS. NOTE: the transfer of .co.za domain names are free, all other domain names have a fee associated with the transfer.

You do the transfer/Self-Manage: This option allows you to perform the transfer. Usually you would manage the DNS administration with this option. After you have registered the domain name the transfer process will begin. If all is well with the previous hosts the domain can take between 2 days (.co.za) and two weeks (.com) to complete. Once transferred and active you will be able to upload and manage your site.
