What are the differences between web hosting service and domain name? Domains provide a name or address to the website which further aids in the identification of that website and thus help visitors to access the website’s content. However, web hosting is a kind of service which provides online storage space to your website so that you can store website related content and data on this dedicated space.
Every serious online player looks for custom digital services, moving away from big and fancy brands who mostly sell horror stories and relaxing tools (say, AI virus & anti-virus bots) in same breath after advert hoopla to attract customers in bulk! Transferring a website is NOT hard, but it can sound challenging for a new client to transfer a website to a new hosting provider. Add to that, your current big daddy smarties can blast you with false alarms and AI cooked alerts while you are about to choose it’s small competitors. When it comes to on-line security and performance, a small startup can provide you as much quality as a billion dollar corporate does.

Or follow steps below to transfer digital services to OSS Prime or any other all by yourself:
1. Obtain the authorization code from current registrar of the domain. Refer WHOIS to find out current registrar name.

We advise that you change your auth code after a transfer. You can do this through your new registrar. Once Domain Transfer is successful, hosting transfer will take few hours. Just backup your old web pages, databases and emails in your local PC and change the name servers of your domain name and your website will be live again on our servers within few hours.
