Transfer DomReg FAQs

Can DreamHost transfer my registration for me?

No. All transfers must be done by the customer.

Are DNS records copied to DreamHost when I transfer a domain?

No. Transferring a domain only moves the registration. DNS records are controlled by your nameservers and will need to be recreated if you point your DNS to DreamHost.

Will the registration time period change?

In most cases, transferring your domain registration adds a one-year renewal to the current registration expiration date, so no registration time is lost. This renewal is active once the transfer-in completes.
