1. Make sure that you have access to the email address listed as the admin contact for the right domain name. Our transfer process is email verification-based, so if your email address listed for the administrative contact of the web site is not current, the transfer will fail. It is inadvisable to try email forwarding for this process.
2. Make sure your domain name is not expired. It is advisable to initiate your transfer at least seven days prior to the expiration date, so there will be enough time to complete the process, especially for premium domains.
3. Remove privacy protection from the WHOIS information (only applicable to non .ca different TLDs ), as this tends to divert the verification email to a non-responding admin address. This also goes for generic top-level domains (gTLDs) and Country Code top-level domains (ccTLD).
4. Make sure your domain name is not locked at the current registry, as many domain name system (DNS) registrars will automatically place a lock on the domain for security.
5. All .ca .com .info, .us ,.biz and .org transfers require an authentication code when transferring your best domain name to us. You can obtain an EPP authorization code from your current registrar (where the qualified domain name is currently registered). The EPP code is, essentially, a unique password for your domain name that may be made up of characters, hyphens, symbols, or other special characters.
6. We cannot transfer new domain names that are less than 60 days old. If you registered your new website within the last 60 days, please wait until after 60 days before starting a transfer to us. We'll still be able to web host your domain then.
7. Name servers transfers add one year onto your expiration date, so you don't lose any time you have paid for.
While we are a fully Canadian website, registrants with internet protocol (IP addresses) in other North American countries, such as the United States, may still register .ca domains, .com domains, or any other unique TLDs they need with our domain registrars.
1. Check to see if your Canadian .ca domain name idea is 'Available' by entering your good domain name choice in the "Register a Domain" box in the upper right corner of the 4GoodHosting website and select ".ca." Please make sure that your .com domain name, or any other, is free of typos before beginning the domain search. If you don't yet have the right name, you can use our domain name generator.
2. From the dropdown menu, click the search bar, and within a few seconds, you will see if the particular brandable domain name is already taken.
3. If it isn't currently registered when you check the domain search, you can click the checkbox that says "Available! Order Now!" next to the .ca domain and click "Add to Cart."
4. Upon checkout and payment confirmation, your new brand domain will be registered with the domain name registration details that you have entered.
5. If you wish, you can also register your new domain name for multiple years at a time. You can subsequently log into your 4GoodHosting client area portal to check the status of your best domain(s), update name-server information, add new extensions, disable annual "auto-renew," or obtain transfer codes.
Note: Your full domain name is free when you order any Canadian web hosting package, with quarterly, biennial, or annual fee billing, and remain a hosting customer for at least 12 months. Just use our free domain registration tool for your corresponding domain name.

Domain privacy is a wonderful feature for those that don't want to publicly identify themselves as the owner of a particular domain name (.com, .net, .org, .info, .ca, .etc.). 4GoodHosting now offers domain privacy for free on .ca domain names, and with a $5 fee for all other domain types (.com, .net, .org, .info, .etc. ). What we will do is manually update your name and address record with 4GoodHosting's domain privacy message, and modify the settings further so nobody will see your online identity on the public "whois" domain information websites.
