For custom domains .my/ .com.my applying through SHOPLINE, the registration will be done and handled by SHOPLINE. If you wish to cancel your subscription, you can take back the shop's domain and transfer the domain to another hosting service provider.
Things you need to be aware of:
- According to ICANN, a domain can not be transferred within 90 days after first registering. For example, if you have registered your domain at A hosting company today, you will not be able to transfer your domain to another hosting company in the next 90 days.
- For the Malaysia region, SHOPLINE will charge the handling fee of RM 270 (before SST) for merchants who are transferring out the complimentary free custom domain.
- Moreover, domain transfer will take about a minimum of 14 days for the whole process, please do apply it in advance. Application may not be entertained if your subscription is expired during the process.
- You need to have a Malaysia-registered company via SSM to do the domain transfer.
- The domain hosting company/ domain reseller will charge you the domain renewal fee during the domain transfer. The price may be varied based on the domain hosting company/domain reseller you choose.
