Transferring a Namecheap domain to Strikingly

If you have a domain with Namecheap, you can transfer it to Strikingly by following this guide. 


Step 1- Start the transfer

  1. Go to the domain transfer page, or click "Transfer Domain to Strikingly" in Dashboard - Domains.


  2. Enter your domain in the field and click "Transfer".


  3. Follow the steps below to authorize the transfer.


Step 2 - Log into Namecheap

Open a new browser window or tab to access your Namecheap account:

  1. Go to Namecheap, then log into your account.
  2. From the Domain List, find the domain you'd like to transfer and click the "Manage" button.



Step 3 - Unlock your domain (if your domain is locked)

If your domain is locked, you'll need to unlock your domain on Namecheap:

  1. Click the "Sharing & Transfer" tab at the top of the page.


  2. Scroll down to the Transfer Out section.
  3. If Domain Lock is on, click "Unlock".



Step 4 - Get the authorization code

You'll need an authorization code from Namecheap:

  1. Click the "Auth Code" button, then enter your reason for transferring the domain to another provider.


  2. In the pop-up, click "Send Code". This prompts Namecheap to send the authorization code to the domain's Registrant email address.
  3. You need to copy and paste this code to the domain transfer form on Strikingly.


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 at this time. Your domain will show "Live" when the transfer process is complete.
