Websites can go offline if a transfer includes a change of the name servers. To avoid any outage of your website, it is important to setup the zone profile of the domain on the new name servers, before initiating the transfer.
If you transfer your domain name to Octopoly, you can setup your zone profile prior to the transfer, following the below procedure:
Please note, we recommend to wait at least 24 hours before initiating the transfer, as it can take up to 24 hours until a zone file is propagated throughout the Internet. If you are not sure about the import of your BIND file, feel free to contact our support. We are more than happy to help you.
