How to transfer domains from NameCheap to Evolve Hosting

Our guide for helping you transfer your domains away from NameCheap
It is best to take care of these steps first before you place an order with us but it can be done after you place an order with us. If you are ready to transfer your domain, go ahead and order your domain transfer here: https://core.evolvewebhost.com/cart.php?a=add&domain=transfer

In order to be transferred, three things need to be true:
1) The domain is not already expired
2) The domain was not registered within the last 60 days
3) The domain was not transferred to your current registrar within the last 60 days

If these three things are true, you will be able to transfer your domain(s) to Evolve with no issues.

This post and the video above will explain how to transfer your domain away from Namecheap. Visit the Namecheap website and login. Once you’re logged in, click on “manage domains” and locate the domain(s) that you’d like to transfer.

Verify your contact details

Below the section for Whois Guard, you can update any email addresses that you need to prior to transferring.

Disable privacy (if enabled)

Once you select the domain to manage, you’ll see the “Whois Guard” page where you can disable it if it’s active.

Obtain your authorization code (sometimes called an EPP code)

While unlocking your domain, click on the “Get EPP Code” link to have the code emailed to you.

Unlock your domain

On the left side of your screen, click on “register lock” and select the radio button to “release the registrar lock status to transfer to another registrar”.

A Special Note About Transferring .uk and .co.uk Domains to us
The .uk and .co.uk domains use what is called a 'push transfer' process and they utilize what is called an IPS TAG. Before initiating a transfer of a .uk or .co.uk domain, you must contact your current registrar and give them our IPS TAG which is PDR-IN Then you can submit an order to us to have your domain transferred.
