Don’t buy a domain name from a web host that is not accustomed to domain name transfer
If your domain is of high-value and is attracting tons of traffic to your website, the last thing you want to think about is your website experiencing downtime when the domain name transfer is underway. The downtime issue will be compounded if your web host is not accustomed to domain name transfer processes. An inexperienced web hosting company is more likely to run into errors in the course of domain name transfer. The problem becomes a lot worse when the same domain name provider is hosting your website. This means that you’ll have to transfer all the website content and other technical aspects to the new domain provider. This is why choosing an accustomed web hosting company from the onset is key. An accustomed web hosting provider knows the ins and outs of domain transfer and will help you transition to the new provider flawlessly.
Don’t choose a mediocre domain name provider for your domain name registration
Some of the key reasons website owners request for domain name transfers are unresponsive, inefficient and poor customer service from the domain name provider. Most website owners prefer to buy a domain name or register domain name free from their hosting provider. While this is good for convenience in terms of efficient management of your website, a mediocre or in effective host can be a pain in the neck. They may be unwilling to transfer the domain name and come up with excuses to make the whole process as painful and costly as possible. They may even switch off your web hosting services with immediate effect, stop sending emails to you, start to get rid of year files from their servers and start to alter DNS records in a bid to prevent you from having a backup. It can get nasty.
