Cannot transfer domain from Bluehost to Cloudflare

I am trying to transfer my domain from Bluehost to Cloudflare but had been unsuccessful.
I have unlocked the site transfer, turned off domain privacy, and obtained the correct EPP code. I do not know what I am missing.

My domain is

I would love to transfer to Cloudflare before my registration expires.

Leave the ‘www’ off. Other than that, is there any error showing? How long until your registration expires? Hopefully at least a couple of weeks away to give the transfer time to go through.

This is the screen I saw after finishing the process.
I have until the end of April so hopefully, this would be resolved soon.

Hi @beactiveiseasy ,

I see that your dashboard shows this message:

Approve transfer at FastDomain
You’re on your way to having your domain transferred to Cloudflare. This process can take up to 5 days to complete, but can be faster if you were to go to your registrar and confirm the transfer. Learn more about domain transfer.

Besides that, when checking WHOIS we see the following:

Domain Status: clientTransferProhibited

This status is blocking the transfer. Please follow the guidance in article below (first step is unlock your domain):

Check WHOIS to confirm that the lock was removed and approve the transfer.

Hi @salvador,

I have unlocked the domain and disabled domain privacy (iCANN WHOIS). Do you mind taking a look at it again?

Thank you.

You probably didn’t have to disable privacy, but you’ve done so and it’s reflected in WHOIS.
As is this:
Domain Status: ok

So you should be all set.

Domain transfer could take up to 7 days unless you approve the transfer at your current Registrar.

Were you able to approve the transfer?

Thank you for reminding me. I have approved the transfer on my end and everything is taken care of.
