Domain whois/transfer

I have 2 questions:

  1. can I set whois for a domain bought in Netlify? I want to set my contact details there
  2. can I transfer a domain bought in Netlify to another DNS provider? or I can only use NS records to point this domain somewhere elase?

Hi @terasa,

Thanks for reaching out! Welcome to Netlify Forums. Great question.

  1. You cannot set whois with Netlify, as we are not a domain name registrar. We use name.com. For a bit more information on this, you can check out this post!
  2. Yes, this is possible. You can read about how to do this on this doc.

Let us know if this is helpful!

I don’t need to transfer to Netlify, I want to transfer out of Netlify. I have bought a domain in Netlify and I want to move my domain to Route53. How can I do it?

Hello @terasa ,

Thank you for clarifying! Please follow the steps outlined in this Support Guide! It outlines how to do this in the fourth section, titled “Can I transfer them to another person or registrar?”

Best,
Hillary
