How do I transfer a domain purchased elsewhere

You can transfer your domain from another registrar to your Website Builder account, what does this mean?

  1. Website Builder will become your domain host, so your domain renewal will be done with Website Builder.
  2. You will be able to access your DNS records section through your domains page.

If you would prefer to keep your domain with your current host, you can link your existing domain to your Website Builder account. Click here to learn how to link a domain.
