FAQ - Domain Transfer
The nameservers for the domain will remain the same during the transfer, unless you are using some FreeDNS service that is bundled with your domain. So, if you are hosting the DNS for the domain on your own or with a webhosting company, they will be transferred over and there shouldn't be any downtime for the domain. If you use your registrar's default nameservers and want to avoid downtime during transfer, we advise you to do the following:
- ensure that your domain is using a backup dns service, not related to your current registrar
- once your domain starts using the back dns service you can initiate a transfer
