Hey Good Day 

I would like to Transfer an existing Domain Name, however, I am not entirely sure how to go about doing so and I am confused. I want to transfer the domain name to the website I built using WordPress on Inmotion, however I do not want the website that is attached to the Domain Name in question. Please Help!

Hello, 

Thank you for your question regarding domain transfers. Fortunately, the domain transfer process and the website transfer process are completely separate, so you can transfer your domain to our registrar without bringing the site along with it. 


Alternatively, you don't even have to transfer the domain name to start using it with your InMotion Hosting account. All you need to do is point the domain to our nameservers at your current domain registrar and ensure that the domain is active on your cPanel account. If you created your account with the domain name in question, it should already be set as the primary domain name on the cPanel account, in which case all you need to do is point the domain to our nameservers. 


I suggest reviewing the instructions on the following guide:
