The domain name com is (to no surprise) a top level domain (TLD) in the Domain Name System of the Internet. Originated in 1985, its name is derived from the word commercial, indicating its initial purpose was for domains registered by commercial organizations. Years later, the domain opened for general purposes. Since then, com has grown into the largest top-level domain, towering over other options including edu, gov, mil, net, org, etc.
Most internet users instinctively use .com when entering a website address in their browser. Being the most common domain, .com demonstrates authority, longevity and trust. Due to this default popularity, most site owners find it is easier to promote, brand, and advertise .com extensions. When thinking about future SEO, keep in mind .com domains rank easily and quickly!

Once the order is submitted to us and the EPP code is validated an email will be dispatched to the administrative WHOIS contact with a link that must be clicked in order to continue with the transfer. After this link is clicked the old registrar has five (5) days to release the domain to us.
While many registrars will either approve the request automatically or email you an additional link to get them to approve the transfer immediately, some do not and you may have to wait the full five days for the transfer to complete.
On your My KnownHost panel page you'll be presented with a form to update the Registrant, Administrative, Technical, and Billing WHOIS contact info. If you have domain privacy enabled on your domain this information will not be public.
Per ICANN policy a domain cannot be transferred within 60 days of its registration or last transfer. This applies to domain registrations being transferred to us as well as away from us.
