Plus, our extensive selection of tools and features ensure that a domain transfer to IONOS is equally beneficial for businesses and personal sites alike. We can also assist with the digital marketing of your IONOS domain, heighten its exposure as well as ensure it's as engaging and sophisticated as possible.
If you are planning to change the domain ownership information, you can do so through the account settings with your current provider. If you are transferring your domain name to a new host, but the registration of your domain name remains with a third party, you will then need to provide updated registration and server information to your new hosting service.
Once your site is up and running with your new hosting plan, you will receive an IP address through which you can access your site and make any necessary changes. Take the backup files that you prepared and recreate your original site on your new hosting service.
Your domain control panel allows you to view and edit your site with all the features and settings at your fingertips. If in the future you decide to transfer another domain name to IONOS, you can view and edit the new domain in the same place. Your IONOS control panel helps you keep an overview of your domains and allows you to manage and co-ordinate them on a day-to-day basis with minimal fuss. Aside from the intuitive control panel, there is an array of other features that can assist you in building an attractive and engaging site from scratch. Whether you're transferring across multiple domains for a large enterprise or if you're at the beginning stages of creating your first personal site, IONOS will be there to assist every step of the way.
We'd be happy to help you choose the right product or provide support for existing customers.
