When you transfer your website to RAGE Web Hosting, not only will you get a reliable host, but you will also receive an all in one place for your domains, hosting, software, and SEO needs.

If you already have a domain it is very easy to transfer your domain to RAGE Web Hosting. The process will take less than 5 minutes.

The first thing you’ll want to do is e-mail your current domain registrar and tell them to unlock the domain, and send you the EPP or Authorization Code. Most registrars will let you do this on your own, but if you don’t want to do it on your own, you can just send them an e-mail.

In this demonstration, I’m going to show you how to obtain the Authorization Code from your GoDaddy account. The process should be fairly similar with other registrars, but note that some will refer to the code as an EPP code, while others may refer to it as an Authorization Code.

So to do this in GoDaddy, you will first need to open the Domain Manager by clicking on My Products under the My Account tab. Then click on Domain Manager which is located on the left hand side of the window under My Products.

When the Domain Manager opens up, click on the domain that you wish to transfer.

Under the heading Domain Information, there are two things we will need to do. You will see that Authorization Code that I mentioned earlier, with a Send By Email link right beside. Click on the link and have the email sent you.

The next thing is to unlock the domain which will allow us to transfer it. As you can see, this domain is currently locked. To change this, press the Manage button, and uncheck the box to unlock the domain.

Once you have received that code, you can go to the RAGE Web Hosting page, which is located at or by selecting Hosting in the navigation menu on

The next thing you’ll do is press the Sign Up Now button.

On the first page of the shopping cart, you will need to select the second option which reads “I want to transfer my domain to RAGE Web Hosting.” Then type in your domain.

This is a really important step if you are transferring your domain. If you keep it on the default option which is for registering a new domain name, then you will be told that the domain is already registered, which would be true, because it is currently registered by you.

On the next page, you can choose your Billing Cycle, and any add-ons that you might want.

On the next page, here is where you will enter the EPP or Authorization code that you received from your registrar.

When you are finished with the signup process, you will receive an e-mail within a few hours. Included in this e-mail will be your FTP login details to publish your site, as well as the Nameservers that you will need to update your website.

You will then be able to go back to your registrar and update your nameservers . In the same section where I got the Authorization Code and unlocked the domain, there is a link that says Set Nameservers. You can click on this link and update the information to include the Nameservers that you recieved in your e-mail from RAGE Web Hosting.

When you are done, you will receive an e-mail within the next few days, telling you to approve the transfer.  Approve the transfer, and you’re all set.
