How do I transfer my domain name from Siteground?

This guide explains how to transfer a domain from Siteground.

1. Please check your domain contact information is correct, especially the administrator's email address as all emails regarding the transfer will go to there.

  • Login to your SiteGround User Area.
  • Go to the My Accounts tab.
  • Go to the Domains section.
  • Click the 3 dots to the right of the corresponding domain name.
  • Click Manage Domain.
  • On the new page you will be able to edit this information.

2. Unlock your domain:

  • Log in your SiteGround User Area.
  • Go to the Domains section.
  • Click the 3 dots to the right of the corresponding domain name.
  • Click Manage Domain.
  • There will be a link "Registrar Lock" next to the Status of the domain name.
  • Change the status to "Off", the toggle should be to the left.
  • Click confirm.

3. Obtaining an authorisation code:

  • Log into your SiteGround User Area.
  • Go to the Domains section.
  • Click the 3 dots to the right of the corresponding domain name.
  • Click Manage Domain.
  • The EPP Code section is marked "Get EPP code".
  • Click "Send code".
  • Once you click this, you will get an email to the administrator's email address with your EPP code on.

4. Transferring a .uk Domain:

  • Log in to your User Area.
  • Go to the My Accounts tab.
  • Go to the Domains section.
  • Click the 3 dots to the right of the corresponding domain name.
  • Click Manage Domain.
  • Lastly, Select Domain Name Tag and update this to STACK.

5. Initiate the transfer by ordering the transfer through lyricalhost.com:

  • Select 'Domains' at the top of the site.
  • Select 'Transfer in a Domain' on the left hand side.
  • Enter your domain name and the authorisation code (This is not required for .uk domains).
  • Select 'Add to Cart'.
  • This will charge you the equivalent of one years renewal of the domain, as we have to renew the domain during transfer.

Don't worry - you will not lose any time you already have left on the domain, instead you will obtain an extra year on top of the expiry date.

Please note the domain transfer will take up to five full days to complete. Keep an eye on your emails as any information will be sent to the Administrative contact.
