How To Transfer Your Domain to MBS Hosting From Google Domains

This guide will provide you with the information required to transfer your domain to MBS Hosting from Google Domains.

Why Transfer A Domain To Your Hosting Account?

There are several reasons one would want to transfer a domain. At MBS Hosting, we have found most account holders prefer to transfer a domain to us since it is easier to manage everything from a single account, instead of having to manage your domain in one place and hosting account in another. It also makes the propagation and synchronization of the new account to the new IP, nameservers and hosting easier.

At the end of the day though, it is a personal preference whether or not to transfer a domain to a new hosting account.


Who Can Transfer A Domain To Your Hosting Account

Domain transfers are done between hosting providers and/or domain registrars. Anyone who owns a domain though, can request it to be transferred to their chosen hosting company or registrar. No registrar is allowed to keep your domain ‘prisoner.’
