If you are looking to transfer your domains away from Netfirms to any other registrar, then here is a simple guide for you. Within just 3 steps you can move your domain away from Netfirms. There are many popular domain registrars but we personally use NameSilo or NameCheap and hence recommend the same to our readers. Both these registrars got a massive user base not only because of professional services but also for the following reasons – No spam. No banner adverts. No hassle. Just pick a domain, add to cart and register it straightway. Pretty simple huh? Wait here is much more about both of those services, but before that lets have a look at Netfirms too.
Netfirms is one of the best and cheapest domain name registrar that offers discounts round the year. One such delicious offer is coupon LOVE, using which one can get any .com, .net, .org etc domain for just $4.95 along with WHOIS privacy. Believe me, I myself registered many domains using this coupon. Well at this point I would like to share a note from my previous experience. Its always easy to register a domain using some coupon, but you will feel the real pain while renewing it. Yes! some big registrars charge even around $35 also.
Now, coming back to Netfirms the renewal price is around $11.99 per year and $5.99 for domain privacy. So the total amount will be almost $18 and I think its a bit high when compared to others. Well, I made a bit of research and found NameSilo is charging $8.39 along with WHOIS privacy. Using coupon code TRYNAMESILO (if you are trying NameSilo for the first time) you can get $2 discount and now the total amount will be just $6.39, which is very cheap compared to others.
Please note that both Netfirms and NameSilo are very good domain registration service providers. If you fear of losing domain in the transfer process then stick to Netfirms only. Finally, its your wish and here is a 3-step guide to transfer domain from Netfirms to NameSilo.
PS: In this case I considered NameSilo as the new host for the domain. You can use any of your favorite domain registrar .
