How to Prepare to Transfer your Domains to LuckyRegister

  1. Ensure that the administrative contact (admin) for your domain name (registrant contact for .au domain names) has a valid email address in the Whois database. Both registrars use this email address to send you important information about the transfer.

    NOTE: If your domain name has private registration, a service that hides your personal information from the public, you cannot verify your admin email address in the Whois database. You must contact your current registrar to cancel the private registration, and then you can update the email address, if necessary.

  2. Unlock your domain name at your current registrar.
  3. Get an authorization code (also known as an EPP code or transfer key) from your current registrar, if required. Some domain name extensions, primarily country-code top-level domain names (ccTLDs), do not require an authorization code. Some registrars display the authorization code in your account with them, while others email it to the admin email address upon request.
  4. Purchase a domain name transfer from our website. If the extension you want to transfer is not listed, you cannot transfer the domain name to us. We send an email message to the domain name’s administrative contact (admin) after you purchase the transfer. The email contains the transfer IDs (transaction ID and security code) you need to authorize the transfer in your account with us.

For your next steps, make sure you check out the sections Authorizing a Domain Transfer to Us and Checking the Progress of Your Transfer in the article Transfer domain to LuckyRegister

How to move your website builder content from V6 to V7?

Get online. Grow your business. Never miss a customer with V7.

Once you upgrade Website Builder, you’ll want to move your v6 content to your new v7 site. The v6 content will not be accessible after you publish the new site, so take your time copying the old content to the new site.

NOTE: This process can take a while, so you may want to block out some time to do it.

  1. Log in to your Website Builder account.
  2. Open Website Builder v7 and select a theme.
  3. Create some new empty pages for your new site.

    NOTE: You need not spend a lot of time creating perfect v7 pages — the goal is to move your v6 content over to the new site as simply as possible. You can rename and polish your v7 pages later on if you like.

  4. Open a new tab or window in your browser, log in to your Website Builder account again, and this time, open your v6 site.
  5. Select the text on each page of that site and right-click and choose Copy.
  6. Switch back to the browser tab or window showing your new v7 site and select a page.
  7. Click the Text tool in the left-hand toolbar to add a text box onto your page. Drag the box if you need to reposition it. (See Adding and Editing Text.)
    Click the Text tool and drag a text box onto the page
  8. Select the placeholder text in the text box and Cntrl/Command+P to paste the text copied from your v6 site.
    Select placehold text and and Cntrl/Command+P to paste the v6 text

    NOTE: After moving over the old site’s text, you’ll also want to re-upload your images. See Adding and Editing Images and Adding Image Slideshows and Photo Galleries.

  9. Because the v6 version (and its content) will no longer be available once you publish your v7 site, double-check to make sure you have copied over everything from the old site.
  10. After confirming that everything has been moved to the new site, you can publish it.

TRANSFERRING AWAY FROM NETWORK SOLUTIONS TO LUCKYREGISTER

2. Confirm Administrative Contact Information

Ensure that the administrative contact (admin) for your domain name (registrant contact for .au domain names) has a valid email address in the Whois database. We and Network Solutions use this email address to send you important information about the transfer.

NOTE: If your domain name has private registration, a service that hides your personal information from the public, you cannot verify your admin email address in the Whois database.

  1. Log on to your account at NetworkSolutions.com.
  2. Click Account Settings.
  3. Click Accounts and Contacts.
  4. From the People Who Can Access This Account section, click Edit Account Contacts.

About domain name system (DNS)

DNS stands for domain name system, controls your domain name’s website and email settings. When visitors go to your domain name, its DNS settings control which company’s server it reaches out to.

For example, if you use LuckyRegister’s DNS settings, visitors will reach LuckyRegister’s servers when using your domain name. If you change those settings to another company, visitors will reach that company when they use your domain name.

DNS, which stands for domain name system
DNS, which stands for domain name system

What I’m seeing is more complicated than that…

DNS can be confusing. It’s made up of many different elements which control different aspects of your domain name. Here’s a quick explanation of each one:

DNS Element Description
Nameserver Nameservers “point” your domain name to the company that controls its DNS settings. Usually, this will be the company where you registered the domain name.

However, if your website is hosted by another company, sometimes you’ll need to use their nameservers.

Zone File Zone Files are simply the files that store all of your domain’s DNS settings. Your domain name’s Zone File is stored on the company’s nameserver.
A Record A Records point your domain name to an individual server using an IP address. An example IP address is 123.4.67.5.

You can also use A Records to point subdomains (for example subdomain.coolexample.com) to a server’s IP address.

Every domain name has a primary A Record called “@,” which controls what your domain name does when some visits it directly.

CNAME CNAMEs point your subdomains to another server using a server name. Unlike A Records, CNAMEs cannot use IP addresses.

Most domain names have many CNAMEs.

MX Records MX Records point your domain name’s email to its email provider.

If your domain name uses our nameservers, you can view or change your domain name’s DNS through us.
