Step 4 - Request the Authorization/EPP code

To authorize the transfer, you'll need to enter an authorization code. Bluehost sends the code to an email address in the domain’s contact information:

Step 5 - Complete the remaining steps in Strikingly

Follow the steps in Strikingly to complete your domain purchase and confirm the transfer in your email. It takes about 5 days for your registrar to release your domain to us. You don't have to do anything in this time. Your domain will show "Live" when the transfer process is complete.
