Transferring a Turbify(Yahoo) domain to Strikingly

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


Note: Before Verizon Small Business Essentials became Turbify in 2022, it rebranded itself as Aabaco from December 2015 to January 2018. Aabaco was aquired by Yahoo in January 2018.
