How to transfer your domain to HostPapa


Before submitting a domain transfer request to HostPapa, please make sure to perform following steps at your current domain provider:

1. Your domain needs to be unlocked
2. Retrieve the EPP code necessary for the transfer
3. Make sure you have access to the registrant email address

Our domain registrar sends an email to that email address after transfer is initiated with a link inside which you will need to click to authorize the transfer.

Please note that this however does not apply to,, and TLDs.

Before you submit to transfer your .uk domain name to HostPapa, please perform following steps:

Contact your current domain provider and ask them to change the IPS tag for your domain to PROMOPEOPLE. Some domain registrars do this through a control panel, but others may need fax, email or letter to carry out the trade.

Please ensure we have enough time to initiate the domain transfer before its expiration/renewal date. Transfers can take up to seven (7) days to complete, and it is recommended you make this request at least two (2) weeks before your domain’s expiry date to ensure domain does not become non-functional during the transfer.
