Here are a few things to keep in mind before starting the domain transfer process:
- La transferencia de un dominio no mueve el contenido ni el diseño de su sitio. If you set up your WordPress.com site before transferring the domain, you need to import your site content.
- Newly registered domains cannot be transferred until they are at least 60 days old .
- Domain transfers can take five to seven days . If you need your domain to start showing your site sooner than that, change the nameservers before initiating the transfer.
- Our WordPress.com annual plans come with free domain name credit for one year, which can be used to transfer your domain.
- As part of the transfer process, your domain will be renewed for an additional year . If you just renewed the domain with your current provider, you won’t lose that renewal. If your domain has already been renewed for the maximum possible term (ten years for most domains, although shorter for some country code domain extensions), it will not be possible to transfer until the domain becomes eligible for renewal.
- When the transfer completes, you will manage all aspects of your domain in your WordPress.com account, including renewal, cancellation, or a future transfer.

Preparing a Domain for Transfer
Before you can start the transfer of your domain, you will need to complete two steps at your current provider. The general steps are explained below, or you can jump to the instructions for common domain providers such as GoDaddy and 1&1:
Instructions for Common Providers
Step 1: Unlock your Domain
Domain providers lock a domain as a security measure to prevent unauthorized changes like transfers. This is typically referred to as a registrar-lock.
Your domain provider’s domain management interface should have an option for you to remove this lock. Some domain providers require you to contact them via their customer support service to request that they remove it.
Step 2: Obtain Your Domain Transfer Authorization Code
You will need to provide WordPress.com with a unique code from your current domain provider that will allow you to transfer the domain here. That code is commonly known as an EPP code, but your domain provider might also refer to it as a transfer code, authorization key, or an auth code.
Your domain provider’s interface should have an option for you to request this code, but some domain providers require you to contact them via their customer support service to request the code instead.
Please note: Some registrars may have additional steps that need to be completed on their end before a domain is able to be transferred.

Below are links to the instructions for some popular domain providers on how to prepare your domain for transfer. If you don’t see your domain provider listed, or the listed page does not answer your question, please contact your provider’s support department directly for help:

Start the Transfer on WordPress.com
To ensure your domain will work immediately upon a completed transfer, update the name servers with your current registrar to point to WordPress.com before you initiate the transfer.
Once you have unlocked your domain and obtained your transfer code (see previous section), you can now follow these steps to start the transfer on WordPress.com:
- Go to the Domains page by clicking Upgrades → Domains in the left sidebar of your site dashboard.
- Next, decide which site you wish to transfer your domain to:
- To add a domain to the existing site you’re working on, click Add a domain to this site.
- To add a domain to a brand new site, click Other domain options, then select Add a domain to a new site.
- To add a domain to another site in your account, click Other domain options, then select Add a domain to a different site.
- Select Use a domain I own.
- On the next page, click the button that says Transfer to WordPress.com:
- Type the domain name you wish to transfer and click Next.
- The next page will ask you to confirm that you want to begin setting up the domain transfer. If you want to proceed, click the Start setup button.
- On the next page, you’ll be instructed to log into your domain provider account and locate your domain’s settings page. Once you’ve done this, click the I found the domain’s settings page button.
- The next page will check that your domain is unlocked. If your domain is still locked, please make sure to unlock it with your current provider and then click the I’ve unlocked my domain button. It might take some time for any changes at your current provider to take effect.
If your domain is still locked by your domain provider, or if the domain’s lock status hasn’t updated yet, you may see an error message, and a suggestion to try again in a few minutes.
- Enter the authorization code you’ve received from your current provider and click the Check readiness for transfer button.
- When the authorization code is confirmed, click the Continue button.
- The last step before checkout is to confirm your contact details. If you’ve previously bought a domain or a plan from us, we will pre-fill the form for you. You can also enable private registration if it’s available for your domain. If all your details are correct, click Continue to Checkout to pay for your domain transfer.
- Make a payment to purchase the transfer. If you are entitled to a free domain with any annual or two-year WordPress.com plan, you will not be charged.
- On the next screen, you will see a confirmation message. You will also receive an email from WordPress.com. Your domain transfer is now in progress and should complete in five to seven days.
Your domain will be renewed automatically for another year upon completion of a successful transfer. You can add as many additional domains to the same site as you like, but you will need to pay for additional transfers separately. The cost of the transfer is equal to the standard renewal cost for the domain. If you do not complete the transfer within 30 days, the domain transfer will be removed from your account and your payment refunded or your free domain credit restored.
Do not cancel your domain registration at your current provider at this point. If you cancel the domain you will immediately stop owning it and the transfer will fail. Your current provider will automatically remove the domain from their system once the transfer completes.

Changing the DNS Records After a Successful Transfer
Once you confirm the transfer, it can take up to seven days for the process to complete. You will receive an email from us once the domain is on our system, at which point you will be able to manage it from Upgrades → Domains.
If your domain’s name servers are not pointed to us yet, you can now set them to point to us by going to Upgrades → Domains and clicking on your domain. Choose Change your name servers & DNS records and on the next screen turn on the “Use WordPress.com Name Servers” option as shown here:
If you have an email address for your domain with another provider, you can add DNS records required to connect an email account to your domain.
Once the transfer completes you may also receive an email requesting you to verify your contact information for the domain. That email will be coming from [email protected]

Checking Your Transfer Status and Failed Transfers
If the domain transfer fails, we’ll notify you via email, and will also display a notice at Upgrades → Domains that the transfer failed. You’ll have the option to restart the transfer, or to cancel it for a refund.
If the failed transfer isn’t restarted within 30 days of the original purchase, it will automatically be removed from your account and your payment refunded or your plan domain credit restored.
Domain transfer statuses include:
- This means you purchased a domain transfer during checkout, but have not begun the transfer process.
- Select More Info for more information on your next steps.
- Go to Upgrades → Domains and select Start Transfer to begin the transfer process.
- If you don’t start the transfer within 25 days, the transfer will be removed from your account and your payment refunded or your plan domain credit restored.
Transfer in Progress
- This is the state of the transfer once you’ve submitted the authorization code and paid for the transfer.
- Your domain will be locked for any changes at your current provider, so you will no longer be able to make changes to the name servers, DNS records, or contact information.
- You should also receive an email from your current provider with instructions how to cancel the transfer on their end. This is a security precaution against unauthorized transfers, and you can safely ignore that email if you want the transfer to proceed.
- No further action is needed, and the transfer will complete within five to seven days.
- This status is shown if the transfer could not be completed.
- You will also receive an email notifying you of the failed transfer.
- Click on the More Info notice to see some more information on why the transfer failed.
Reasons a domain transfer may fail include:
- You bought a transfer while signing up for a new site, but did not complete the steps to start the transfer within 30 days.
- The domain is still locked. Please make sure you’ve unlocked the domain for transfer at your current provider.
- The domain expired, entered redemption, or was canceled after the transfer was initiated. Please contact your current provider to help you reactivate the domain, and then restart the transfer process.
- The transfer was canceled on your current provider’s end. Please restart the transfer process.
- In rare cases, the current provider may dispute a transfer which will cause it to be canceled.
If we’re unable to determine why the transfer failed on our end, we may need to refer you back to your current domain provider so they can look into it.

Canceling a Transfer
If you decide you don’t want to transfer the domain to us anymore, you can cancel it from the Domains page (Upgrades → Domains). Click on the domain that is pending transfer, and select the Cancel Transfer option, as shown below:
This will take you to the Purchases page where you can remove the purchase from your site. If you used the free domain in your plan, canceling this should also restore the free domain credit so you can use it for a different domain. If you paid for the transfer, this will issue a refund.
También podrá cancelar la transferencia a través del correo electrónico de confirmación que le envía su proveedor actual, o a través de la interfaz de administración de dominio de su proveedor actual, aunque esto no eliminará la actualización de su cuenta de WordPress.com. En su lugar, recibirá un correo electrónico nuestro informándole que la transferencia falló y luego puede cancelarla a través de Actualizaciones → Compras para recibir su reembolso.
Una vez que envíe el código de autorización y comience la transferencia, ya no podrá cancelarla desde Actualizaciones → Dominios . Es posible que aún pueda cancelarlo a través de su proveedor actual.

Preguntas frecuentes y solución de problemas
¿Puedo acelerar el tiempo que tarda una transferencia?
En algunos casos, puede comunicarse con el registrador del que se está mudando y pedirle que acelere el proceso de transferencia.
Mi código de autorización no es válido.
Los códigos de autorización o EPP distinguen entre mayúsculas y minúsculas. Si está escribiendo el código manualmente, intente copiar y pegar el código en su lugar. Asegúrese de que no se agreguen espacios adicionales.
La transferencia de dominio se completó, pero mi dominio no funciona.
Verifique la configuración de su DNS para asegurarse de que está utilizando los servidores de nombres de WordPress.com . Vaya a Actualizaciones → Dominios , seleccione el dominio que desee y haga clic en Cambiar sus servidores de nombres y registros DNS . Asegúrese de que Usar servidores de nombres de WordPress.com esté activado. Además, asegúrese de que su dominio transferido esté configurado como primario . Puede hacerlo yendo a Actualizaciones → Dominios , haciendo clic en los tres puntos al lado del dominio que desea como principal y seleccionando Hacer la dirección del sitio principal .
Cambié mi configuración de privacidad y todavía no veo mi sitio en Google. ¿Por qué?
Search engines can take 4-6 weeks or more to revisit your site and discover new content. Adding your site to Google Search Console and requesting an update can help speed up discovery. What about my pages, posts and other content?
A domain transfer does not transfer the content of a site (pages, posts, media, etc.). If you are transferring the content of a site to WordPress.com, use the imports .
