How to transfer your domains to DreamHost

We'll get your domain to its new home in no time.

Contact Your Current Registrar

Ask your current domain registrar to help you get your domain ready to transfer to DreamHost. You will need them to unlock the domain, remove any privacy protection from your WHOIS registration, and obtain the authorization code (also known as the EPP code).

Login to the DreamHost Panel

Login to, click ‘Domain’, then click ‘Reg. Transfer’. Next, click the ‘Start Transfer to DreamHost’ button. On the next page, you’ll need to fill in the ownership details and enable the FREE privacy protection (if you’d like that). You’ll then need to pay the transfer fee (which varies amongst the different TLDs).

Keep an Eye on Your Email Inbox

Confirm any emails from DreamHost or the current registrar to ensure a speedy transfer.

Wait for the Transfer Completion

Wait 5-7 business days for the transfer to complete. You will receive an email once this is done.

Already have a domain that you love?

No problem! It's quick and painless to transfer your hosting, domain registrations, or both to DreamHost.
