What happens to nameservers associated with my domain after the transfer?
The nameservers for your domain will remain unchanged during the transfer. So if you are hosting the DNS for the domain on your own or with a web hosting company, they will be transferred over and there will not be any downtime for the domain.
If you use your registrars default nameservers, and want to avoid downtime, we advise you to check with your current registrar before initiating the transfer
If I transfer my domain to GKG.NET, will I lose the remaining time I have with my current registrar?
All time remaining on your domain will be transferred – you will not lose it. The expiration date of the domain will also be extended for one year.
However, if your domain expired with your old registrar, and you renewed it with them, then we suggest you do not transfer it within 45 days of the previous expiration date since it will not add 1 more year to your domain name's expiration date, and you will lose out on the renewal fees paid to the previous registrar.
What is an Auth/EPP Code?
A domain authorization code (also referred to as an Auth Code or an EPP Code), provides an extra level of security for your domain name registration. This code is unique for each domain and is assigned by the registrar at the time of registration.
You'll need an Auth Code to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another. This Auth Code is usually found on the domain management interface at your current registrar.
