I have a domain registered with tucows thru homestead that I have not used but would like to transfer to my new website. Do I do it through Homestead and how, or through tucows and how? Do I need to sign up with another webhost like godaddy to make the transfer work?Can I also transfer the pages I have created with homestead along with my new domain?

Hello,

If you need to move the domain to a new site on your account, you can do so by changing the domain's site association. The guide to do this is below.

https://community.homestead.com/homestead/topics/how_can_i_switch_my_domain_to_a_new_site_i_built

If the new website is on a different Homestead account, we will have to move the information from one account to the other. For us to do this we would need additional information for the other account, so if this is the case, let me know and I can help you with this.

When I go to my domain all it shows is my basic info, login and security. There are none of the options shown on the website you linked me too

Oh it sounds like you might have been in the Contact Info & Security Page. Select the Domains page on the left, you'll see 3 options, the third one is Manage Your Websites Domains, click that link and that's where it's all at.

I can remove the privacy, unlock the domain and send the authorization code to your email if you would like.

Hi Nicole3918,
The reason you couldn't see the page is because the account attempted to receive a payment and never went through, I initially missed this. I have unlocked the domain, removed the privacy and sent the authorization to your email address on file.
