How do I transfer a domain to AWS from another registrar?
Last updated: 2019-04-24
I have a domain hosted with another registrar, and I want to move the domain to Amazon Web Services (AWS). How do I do that?
Before transferring a domain, be sure that your current registrar will allow the transfer, that Amazon supports the top-level domain (TLD) of your domain name, and that your DNS is configured to correctly route traffic to your domain after your domain is transferred. When you're ready, transfer your domain.
Note: Some TLDs have additional requirements to transfer domains. You might need to:
- Contact your current registrar directly to unlock a domain
- Update the registrant contact email address
- Get a transfer authorization code
- Update the information on the domain to allow the transfer
