2. How do I transfer our domain to Faithlife?

With Faithlife Sites, you can use Faithlife to manage your domain records and perform troubleshooting when issues arise. So long as you have a Faithlife Sites Premium subscription and know your domain provider login information, you can transfer your domain to Faithlife. 

Regardless of which service provider your site was hosted on before, you can follow these simple steps to transfer your domain:

  1. Disable WHOIS/domain privacy
  2. Ensure the admin email address is up to date
  3. Unlock the domain
  4. Get the transfer authorization (EPP) code
  5. Start your transfer in the settings tab

Every domain provider is a little different, so the specific steps you’ll take will vary from one provider to the next. You can find links to the support documentation from some of the most commonly used web hosts at the Faithlife Help Center


We hope this answers some of your questions. 

You can also find many answers by looking right here or by reaching out to our Church Support Center—it’s open 365 days a year. And for ideas on what you could do on your website, check out Best Church Websites with Examples & Best Practices.
