Transferring a .com/.net/.org/etc domain away from Nimbus

If you'd like to transfer your ..com/.net/.org/etc domain away from Nimbus, it is a relatively simple process. Note that the new registrar will usually charge you a fee to transfer the domain in. 

1 - In your client area at https://youraccount.nimbushosting.co.uk, go to Domains -> My Domains to see the list of domains you currently have registered with us - check it is in your account. Also check that the admin contact is up to date as during the transfer process they will receive some important emails that will require action. 

2 - Open a support ticket with us via your client area, or by dropping us an email to support@nimbushosting.co.uk  detailing the domain you'd like to transfer. We'll then reply to you letting you know that the domain has been unlocked, and what the auth code for the domain is. Please note that the request will need to come from the lead or one of the contacts on your account with us. 

3 - You'll then need to use this auth code at the new registrar to pull the domain across. The transfer process generally takes around 3-5 working days. 

Note: Whilst we dont delete DNS Zones when a domain is transferred out, you might want to move the domain over to the new registrars Nameservers - they should be able to assist you with this. Once setup, you can change the domains nameservers just go to Domains -> My Domains -> (Domain) -> Manage -> Nameservers.

Drop us an email or support ticket if you have any questions about this.
