Is it safe to transfer a domain name from a provider to another provider? is there any risk when transfer domain names? for example, I'd like to move domain name from Godaddy to Namecheap...or from Name.com to Godaddy? does that have any issues when transferring?

There is no issues transfering domains from one registrar to another, find best price and transfer it. Simple as that.

I mean that there are different prices from registrar to registrar, some offers cheap transfer and or renewal price. Search for one and transfer/move it.

Renewal time will extend for +1 year, that's why you pay for when you transfer. Since transfer itself is free, but registrars charge you for the renewal period of one year.

Do we need to pay fee for transfer domain name? I asked my domain provider in my country and they said, I need to pay $70 fee for that, not sure about other domain providers :)

What?! What extension is the domain name? Since this is the first time i've heard that a registrar ask for such amount of transfer fees. In real world, like namecheap, porkbun, name, namesilo etc they charge the cost of fees for the renewal peroid, because if you transfer a domain it will automatically renewed for one more year.

Yes, Completely safe. Just do not share the Authorization Key with anyone other than the Registrar you are moving to. And Most of them have the option to Lock the domain so it cannot be transferred even if someone has the auth key.

good day

of course it is safe, only you should supply the epp code to your new provider and he will take care of this process.

The epp code is the security key so that your domain is not lost in the transfer process.

You shouldn't worry about transferring a domain it is generally very safe.
You can transfer it via the transfer code
If you are worried about it turn on 2fa on the both accounts.

Hello Kaz Wolfe,
Don't worry. It is absolutely possible & very safe to transfer your domain from your current domain registrar to to another domain registrar. First you need to contact and talk about pricing because some providers also give some benefits like, you will get one more year absolutely free. It means you need to pay only for 1 year and next year your domain will be extended for free. First every web developers who want to transfer domains must contact to domain registrar to regarding for pricing.

Yes, domain name transfer is a very hassle-free process. You just need to ask your current web hosting or domain registrar to transfer your domain name to their environment, for this, you just need to share your domain name control panel login credentials with them. It may take 24-48 hours to complete this process.
