Hi there, I am looking at moving to cloudflare domains. my domain renews at the end of the year. I am not sure if I have to wait till renewal to transfer to cloudflare, or could I transfer, say today? What happens with the remaining months i currently have?
Apart from .uk domains, a domain transfer will add one year to your renewal date (up to a maximum of 10 years) on top of any remaining time so there is no problem to do it sooner, and don’t leave it as late as 1 day as transfers can take 7-10 days.
Make sure you add the domain to Cloudflare before transferring the domain and follow these steps…
Using Cloudflare as a registrar requires the use of Cloudflare nameservers.
You can if you like as long as othe icann regulations are met,
When you transfer, a year is added to the expiry date, the remaining months are not lost.
Thank you. is there whois protection as well?
Yes, do note that it varies based on the regulations of the TLD,
.us for example. Some details worth reading here, Whois privacy for .us domain - #2
Thank you, its a .com domains so i guess that has whois protection?
Yes, details here,
