Have a plan of transferring your domain and hosting for not getting adequate services for the money you are spending. In this ideal world, there is no need to worry about switching the web hosts. If your current website provider is not offering what you require, then it might be the time to move to a better hosting provider. Moving your site to a new web host can actually be easy if you take the right steps.

Essentials before you transfer your domain:

1) You need to make sure that the domain is not under on-hold with the old registrar, if it is on-hold then you need to contact your old domain registrar to remove it.  

2) A domain which is newly registered or less than 60 days cannot be transferred based on the ICANN terms and conditions.

4. The website may not work once transferred due to configuration / cPanel version mismatch. (PHP/Mysql version mismatch)
5. Your old service provider may not have a proper control panel such as cPanel, in this case, the migration will be delayed or affected.

Generating the authorization code for transferring the Domain Name:

The authorization code for the domain name refers to the EPP code or Auth code. It is unique for every domain and offered by your registrar while registering the domain name. During the domain registration, Auth/EPP code provides an additional level of security. You need the EPP code or the auth code while transferring the domain from one registrar to another registrar. The EPP or Auth code of the domain acts as a password and ensures that only owner of the domain can transfer the domain name.

You need to provide the EPP code to the new registrar for transferring the Domain name. The domain transfer depends on the time taken by the owner to confirm the transfer and also the time taken by the current registrar to accept or reject the transfer. Usually, the domain transfer might take 7 to14 days to get transferred.
