Move a domain between Cloudflare accounts
You will have to move or transfer domains from one Cloudflare account to another if you:
Manage a multi-user organization and need to segment domain access by user.
Cloudflare is already hosting under a different accounterror.
Lose access to your email address or Cloudflare account.
To transfer a domain from one Cloudflare account to another, you will need:
- Access to your domain registrar. If your domain is using Cloudflare Registrar, you will need to transfer your domain .
- At least one Cloudflare account associated with the domain.
Transfer your domain
If you lose access to the email address associated with your Cloudflare account and do not have backup codes, you will need to manually transfer your domain to a new Cloudflare account associated with a different email address.
The domain transfer process depends on your DNS settings. If Cloudflare is your authoritative DNS provider (that is, your domain nameservers point to Cloudflare), you must:
Finalize the nameserver update by selecting your domain in the dashboard > Overview > Re-check now.
Once the Cloudflare network recognizes the nameserver change, the domain in the new account will be marked as Active. In the old account, the domain will be marked as Moved Away. After seven days in Moved Away status, the domain will be marked as Deleted. After seven days in the Deleted status, the domain will be permanently removed. For more information, refer to .
Issue new certificates
You can order an prior to transferring your domain. Once issued, the certificate will enter Holding Deployment status until the domain is active. ACM certificates will automatically deploy to active domains. For more information, refer to .
