Transfer domain to a Point2 account

To transfer your domain to our services, it will cost $16.95/year. In order to transfer a domain, it first must be unlocked in your domain account with your current registrar. Also, please make sure that you are listed as the administrative contact and that your contact email address is up-to-date in your domain account. It's also best to point your domain name to Point2's name servers and then start the transfer.

You will then need to request an authorization code from your current registrar to initiate the transfer.

Once you have received the authorization code from your domain registrar, you will want to do the following:

  • Sign in to your Point2 account at www.point2.com
  • Click Websites from the top menu
  • Click Manage Domains
  • Click Transfer existing domain on the right in the Related Links box
  • Read the information provided on the page
  • Enter your domain in the space provided and the authorization code from your current registrar
  • Click Proceed

You will receive an email to authorize the transfer with a transaction ID and security code. You will also require the authorization code from your existing registrar in order to proceed so keep that handy as well.

To proceed with the transfer:

  • Sign in to your Point2 account at www.point2.com
  • Click Websites from the top menu
  • Click Manage Domains
  • Click the Registrar Information link in the Status column 
  • Click the Wild West Domains account management panel link
  • Enter your customer number and password then click Secure Login (the customer number and password is included in your domain transfer order receipt that is emailed to you, if you've forgotten it there is a link to reset it on the previous screen) 
  • Click the Domains tab in the top left
  • Click Transfers from the list 
  • Check the box to the left of  the domain you wish to transfer
  • Click Authorize Transfer from the menu buttons along the top

Use the codes provided in the authorization email you received. Please contact us at 866-977-1777 if you are having difficulties with this step as it is required for your domain transfer to begin. If this is not done, your domain transfer will not be completed.
