Transferring a domain from my registrar to WP

    I’m about to purchase domain forwarding from the dashboard, but my domain name is about to expire. I’d like to transfer the domain name registry to I have the EPP transfer code in my hand, and I want to do the transfer ASAP.

    * Are domain transfers possible, or is it just new domains?
    * Will the transfer cost the same as a new domain does on WP?
    * If it is possible, why can’t I see the process walkthrough/FAQ anywhere? Did I miss out on a link? :(

    I’d like to finish this headache as soon as possible – I know what people say about the “freedom of self-hosted blogs” – but it’s just a headache I can do without right about now.

    The blog I need help with is


    Contact staff directly at .



    Maybe you can re-new it i don’t know what you are trying to say. Im preety good at domains and stuff. But what do you mean? Transfer it to another blog? Re-new it? I would say contact wordpress



    I am having the same problem. I would think transferring my domain from another registrar would be easier. Finding what seems like should be a simple answer has proved to be impossible. Please update your domain mapping and management instructions to include clear information about how to transfer domain registration from another registrar. I have found myself in an endless loop wasting my time.




    I just wanted to keep this thread fresh, as I am having the same problem.

    I am now dealing with 3 systems. My domain registrar, WP and Google, to see how I can get my emails back..

    I get nearly 100 emails per day and haven’t received any since Sunday when I changed the DNS settings with my registrar :o(

    Does anyone know “If I transfer my domain to, can I then set up my emails at Google apps?

    According to Google I need to change the CNAME with the Registrar, but WP say I can’t change this with them here

    I am now completely lost as to how to get my emails back, without undoing everything and not having a different domain name which doesn’t affect my emails :(



    I have the same problem as janefinch. Would really appreciate any help. (email redacted)
