How to transfer my domain away from Moniker?

Before initiating the transfer of your domain name from Moniker to us, please make sure that:

  • There are more than 15 days until the domain name’s expiration date.
  • The domain name was registered for the first time more than 60 days ago.
  • The domain name has extension that WebHostFace is able to register.

After that you should confirm your Administrative Contact Information because they are going to use this email address to send you important information about the transfer.

To update this information:

  • Log into your Moniker Account.
  • Go to My Account and then User Profile.
  • Click Edit next to Account Profile, make the changes and click Save.
  • Back in the Account Management page click on Security Settings.
  • Review your email address and make any necessary changes and click Save.
  • You will be emailed a verification key, retrieve it from your email account and paste it in the verification key text box.
  • Click Submit.

If all of the above prerequisites are met, the next thing to do is to proceed with the domain transfer from Moniker to us. It is extremely easy and can be done in a few steps:

1. Unlock your Domain Name

By default, all domains registered with Moniker are placed in Registrar Lock. Domain locking prevents unauthorized transfers (hijacking) of your domain. Before a domain name transfer is requested, the lock must be removed. To unlock your domain name with Moniker you should:

  • Log into your Moniker Account.
  • Go to My Domains and then select the domain to be transferred.
  • Click on Security in the sub-menu.
  • On the Domain Security Manager screen remove the Registrar Lock.
  • If you use MaxLock, you should contact Moniker to remove it, too.

Allow up to 24 hours for our system to recognize the change in status.

2. Obtain the Authorization Code

Get an authorization code (also known as an EPP code or transfer key), if required, from Moniker by:

  • Log into your Moniker Account.
  • Go to My Domains and then select the domain to be transferred.
  • Click on Transfer-Out in the sub-menu.
  • A transfer-out policy page will appear, review it and scroll to the bottom of the page for the Transfer-Out Authorization Form.
  • Select the reason for the transfer and fill in the transfer details.
  • Click Save.
  • The Authorization code will be send to your email address.

3. Order a Domain Name Transfer

  • Log into your User Area with us.
  • Go to the Domains Tab.
  • Click the Transfers tab and enter your domain.
  • Afterwards you will be asked to enter your domain Authorization Key.

Once the domain name transfer is requested, you will shortly receive a confirmation email to approve it.

You will receive an email from WebHostFace once the transfer is complete. If you have not received the confirmation email in seven days time, you should contact us to inquire about your transfer status.
