How do I de-link my domain name from Homestead?

I no longer need my domain name (that directs to a Homestead site), and want to sell it. Do I need to transfer the domain to another registrar? (e.g. GoDaddy)

I'm confused about the relationship between Homestead and Tucows and me.

A rep on the phone told me that if I close my Homestead account without first transferring the domain name to a different registrar, I'll lose my domain name. Is that correct?

Thanks for any help!

Hello, 

Tucows is the registrar we use, but nothing you'll ever need to deal with. If you close your Homestead account before transferring, your domain would be unavailable to do anything with it without reopening your account. If you find someone to purchase the domain, you can help them transfer it from your account to whatever registrar they use.
