How To Transfer A Domain From WordPress ?
Unlock your Domain
Obtain Your Domain Transfer Authorization Code
Select Use a domain I own.
On the next page, click the button that says Transfer to WordPress.com:
Type the domain name you wish to transfer and click Next.
The next page will ask you to confirm that you want to begin setting up the domain transfer. If you want to proceed, click the Start setup button.
On the next page, you’ll be instructed to log into your domain provider account and locate your domain’s settings page. Once you’ve done this, click the I found the domain’s settings page button.
The next page will check that your domain is unlocked. If your domain is still locked, please make sure to unlock it with your current provider and then click the I’ve unlocked my domain button. It might take some time for any changes at your current provider to take effect.
Enter the authorization code you’ve received from your current provider and click the Check readiness for transfer button.
When the authorization code is confirmed, click the Continue button.
The last step before checkout is to confirm your contact details. If you’ve previously bought a domain or a plan from us, we will pre-fill the form for you. You can also enable private registration if it’s available for your domain. If all your details are correct, click Continue to Checkout to pay for your domain transfer.
Make a payment to purchase the transfer. If you are entitled to a free domain with any annual or two-year WordPress.com plan, you will not be charged.
On the next screen, you will see a confirmation message. You will also receive an email from WordPress.com. Your domain transfer is now in progress and should complete in five to seven days.
