Transferring vs Connecting

Transferring and connecting your domain name are very different things even though they might seem like the same things. You’ll usually consider one of them when you purchase a domain name from a third-party provider and want to connect it to your Avoori website. Most of the time, we recommend our customer to transfer their domains so we can take care of any domain issues directly. If you don’t want that to be the case, then you can just connect your domain name to the website and let your original name provider take care of any technical issues.
