You can transfer domain names to myWindowsHosting.com that were registered elsewhere
in order to have all of the elements of your site consolidated under one

While the transfer is in progress your domain will continue to function
as normal (there is no "downtime" in a registrar transfer) and the
domain's status will be Pending Transfer in the myWindowsHosting.com Control Panel. When the transfer is complete the domain status changes to Active.
