Why does a domain transfer cost money?

Domain transfers cost money at every hosting company because they extend the expiration date of your domain for 1 year as it's technically renewing it when it transfers.

You do not need to transfer your domain to us in order to use our service, you can simply change the nameservers to ours which will work the same.
