This is a very common question, is it possible to transfer a domain? Answer, YES possible, and not much complicated to transfer a domain, just few clicks needed to transfer a domain.
Important Note: There can be 60 days lock policy on your current domain register. Meant, suppose you registered or renew or updated your contact information in last 60 days, you will not be able to transfer that domain. In that case we need to wait until 60 days from that update time. You can check last updates time from http://domains.servermore.com/domain-registration/domain-whois-lookup.php just go there and on search bar write down your website’s address and check the dates.

Lets start, I am going to show you what domain I need to transfer, BUT options are very similar for your domain register too.
Step 1: Need to Unlock Domain (Register Lock)
Please login to your existing domain panel, and go to your list of domains
Select your preferred domain
On the domain Domain Registration section, we need to disable the Theft Protection
Click on Theft Protection, when the popup will come, just click on disable and click on Update Theft Protection Status
Step 2: Need to switch off Domain Whois Privacy
For this domain, they are not using Privacy Protection, if you are using, just disable it, using same process of Theft Protection
Step 3: Collect Authorization code (EPP Code)
We need to go Domain Secret here to collect Domain Authorization code or EPP code.
Click on Domain Secret and collect your domain authorization code (just copy it, we need to paste it when we will give transfer order on ServerMore)
(For privacy, I removed Authorization code from screenshot; you will get your own)
Step 4: Order for Domain Transfer on ServerMore (Authorization code will require)
Go to servermore.com and login to your ServerMore account, if you don’t have you can get registered yourself (its free!).
On your account dashboard, you will a section “Register a New Domain”, on that section write-down your domain name and click on transfer.
On the next, ServerMore will ask for Authorization Code, just paste that Authorization Code here, what you copied from your old provider.
Then, click on Add to Cart, on the next page we need to add nameserver, to avoid site’s downtime, please use existing nameservers now, we can update this later.
Then click on continue
On Shopping Cart page, if you have coupon code, use to get less, if you don’t have, just click on Checkout.
Check your existing personal details and billing information, if you want to use different contact details as domain register (please create another contact from your ServerMore account dashboard, and select here).
Then click on Complete Order and Pay. When you are done!
Step 5: Email verification, after successful order, ServerMore will send you verification mail, you just need to verify that email address.
You will get some emails. There will be a verification email, please verify that mail (password is your domain authorization code, also written on that email). We are done! Wait for 5 days, you will get domain transfer confirmation email.
