Once you have decided which hosting service you will use, then you will have to do 5 simple steps:
The domain must be completely unblocked, otherwise you willnot be able to make any changes. Some hosting services allow the user to unlock the domain from a control panel, with some others you have to contact the technical support to help you do it remotely.
It is imperative that, in this step, you obtain the AuthInfo Code or AuthCode that is the password of the domain. This code is essential for the network to determine that the domain is already registered. At some point in the transfer you will be asked for the code to proceed with the migration.
The next step is to migrate the Domain Name System (DNS). This system associates different type of information with your domain. To migrate it correctly you have to have a list of the entries of your current hosting service, this is so that when you transfer your domain to the new hosting service, also transfer the DNS entries and do not lose valuable information.
Back up important data in your domain. The databases or page templates are valuable information that sometimes get lost in the transfer, so save them to your hard drive.

When you finish providing all the information that you are asked for, then it will be time to transfer the domain, therefore, it is very probable that at that time you will be charged the corresponding new accommodation and, immediately, you will receive a conformation mail.
Authentication is the last step. In the confirmation email that arrives you will have to enter the password of the domain or AuthCodeor AuthCode mentioned above, this way the transfer of the domain will begin. You should wait approximately 48 – and up to 72 hours – for the transfer to complete.
