Your domain name is that which defines your site and is located in the address bar of your browser. Each domain name is provided for by a host or a registrar that has registered the domain with ICANN for a small fee. Anyone can own a domain name: large enterprises, medium-sized businesses and even individuals for personal projects. Each domain provider offers a different range of products and features and, like everything, a different quality of service. There are a number of possible reasons to transfer your domain. For instance, you may wish to switch to another provider to get better value, more features and more security, or because you’re having problems with your current host
Despite popular belief, domain transfers are in fact a quick and easy process that can be done within just seven days. First of all, all we need from you is the authorization code from your current provider, and the current email address that’s attached to your account. Double check that you still have access to your secure email account as you will receive your code via this address. We recommend that you backup all your content with your existing domain; this will not be transferred across to your new host. Once requested, you will receive your authorization code and you will then be guided through RDK simple domain transfer service. Our domain transfer process time should take between 5 and 7 days.
While there are many different domain name providers, the transfer process usually looks quite similar. The first thing to take care of is backing up your current content to avoid any potential loss of data. The second step is usually to retrieve your authorization key to a secure email address that you are sure you have access to. The final step is where things may change depending on your host, but we will guide you through an easy step-by-step process.
Your online presence is a vital factor in the successful running of a business. Today, it’s a lot more than just a business card, it is your company branding, your marketing and your PR rolled into one. Providing your current and potential customers with an easy-to-use and aesthetically pleasing website is key. It is therefore important to ensure that your domain provider is the best choice for both you and your business. Your host should suit all your company needs and provide a satisfactory round-the-clock service. If not, it’s well worth considering transferring your domain name to another host. The features offered, the quality of those features, the level of service, the reliability and finally the price of packages will vary greatly from provider to provider. So, if you are considering a domain transfer, it is important to first determine precisely which tools are necessary for your site.

The domain transfer process can be daunting at first and we understand that one of the biggest worries is that your SERP ranking, that you and your company have worked so hard to achieve, may be affected. However, as long as your actual domain name does not change and you follow the steps above, your SEO authority should be unaffected by your domain transfer. In order to avoid any confusion, we recommend not canceling your previous hosting account until your domain transfer with RDK has been fully processed. This way, your company site will remain active and visible throughout the transition period.
