Step 5 Purchase a domain name transfer

1. Visit the domain name transfer page to purchase a transfer.

2. After purchasing the transfer, you can choose to either keep the existing nameservers, or park the nameservers.

Note: If you’re not changing the hosting for your domain, you may want to select “keep existing nameservers” to be certain your site does not go down during the transfer. If your website is not hosted, you can select “park nameservers” and Yoursite will create a temporary page that users will see when they visit your site, until you have set up your site’s hosting.
