Preparing Your Wix Domain for Transfer

Thanks for choosing to move your domain name over to Brighter Vision!

Before our team can help, you will first need to log in to your Wix account here and prepare your domain for transfer by following these 3 steps:

Step 1: Request a Transfer Authorization Code (EPP Code)

The authorization code prevents unauthorized third parties from accessing your domain. We will need this code as proof that you have already approved (authorized) the domain transfer.

  • In the top right corner of your dashboard, click on your name to expand a menu of options, as shown here:

  • Click on Domains in that list, as shown below, to open up the My Domains page.

  • Click the Advanced tab, as shown here:

  • Click the blue Transfer away from Wix link text, as shown here:

  • Click the blue Send Code button, as shown below, in the popup confirmation window.

  • Within 24 hours you will then get the transfer authorization code (or EPP code) from Wix sent to your Administrative Contact email address. Save this code to transfer your domain to us.
If you are having trouble unlocking your domain, you can reach out to Wix’s Customer Support Team for assistance.

Step 2: Unlock Your Domain

Good news – you can skip this step entirely! Wix will automatically unlock your domain when you request your domain transfer authorization code.

Step 3. Change Your Domain’s Privacy Settings to Public

Even more good news – Wix will also automatically turn off privacy protection when you request your transfer authorization code.

Next Steps

Once you have completed all of the above steps to ensure your domain is prepared for transfer, the next will be to send our Support Team an email at support@brightervision.com letting us know you are ready to proceed, and to share your domain’s transfer authorization code (from step 1) with us.

After we receive this code, we will then have all the necessary information needed to move your domain over to Brighter Vision. Once we have initiated the transfer, a member of our Support Team will reach out via email to let you know.

From here, we will keep our eyes on things and let you know if anything else is needed from your end. Otherwise, your transfer will be completed within approximately 7 days from the date we initiated the transfer.
