Re: transfer domain

Why not ask them how to do it? Or are they free because they have no customer service? Then I doubt if it's a good choice.

You have to edit your DNS setting and make it point to your new host. I would recommend talking to someone in customer service at the company you host your domain at.

I doubt it!

Unless they charge you "transfer fee", it is BS.
the transfer is always free with reputable registrars, but renewal are NEVER free, the have to pay the REGISTRY for it every year, if they don't pay out of pocket for this cost, and make the money up some other way (like hosting for example) than it is a SCAM, do not transfer your domain before you verify my answer!
if you want my advise, post the outgoing registrar name (losing registrar) and the new one you intend to transfer to (gaining registrar), and I'll tell you where is the catch, there is always one.....

It's most likely

one free renewal, which means you get one year for free, but it won't be indefinitely. As long as that's clear, first you need to unlock your domain with your current registrar. After that, you will most likely need transfer codes from your current registrar that you'll need to provide to your new registrar. One you have both those steps completed, just initiate the transfer from your new registrar. At some point, they'll ask for the codes and/or send an email confirmation.
