Transferring Your Domains to MCloud9

In this tutorial we will walk you through how to transfer your domain(s) to MCloud9.

When you transfer your domain(s) to us you automatically get a free 1-year extension.

Note: In order for your domains to be transferred successfully they must have been registered, renewed, or previously transferred, more than 60 days ago.

To transfer a domain to MCloud9, follow these steps:

  1. Unlock the domain with your current registrar.
    If you are unsure how to do this you should be able to ask your current registrar for assistance. If they are unable to assist, feel free to reach out to our support so we can help you.

  2. Get the authorization code (EPP code or transfer key) from your current registrar.
    It’s a good idea to verify the administrator’s contact information for your domain as that email address may be used during the transfer process.

  3. From the MCloud9 Home page, select the "Domains" tab from the top navigation and choose "Transfer Domains".
    Alternatively, go straight to www.mcloud9.co.za/transfer-a-domain.

  4. Enter the domain you wish to transfer and select "Transfer".
    To avoid any issues, be sure to enter the correct domain and extension (e.g. “mywebsite.com").
    Verify that your domain extension is listed on our supported domains.
    If it is not currently supported, reach out to us via our
    Contact Us page to see if we can help accommodate you.
    Enter Your Domain

  5. Enter the authorization code (EPP code) from your current registrar and select “Add to Cart”.
