In November 2023 WP Helper and Lakewood media Limited will discontinue our domain and email services. This will allow us to focus on providing better WordPress support services.

You can transfer your domain and email accounts to any provider, but we recommend TSOhost.

How to transfer your domain to TSOhost

To begin go to TSOHost and enter the domain you want to transfer.

If you are transferring a .UK or domains, go to and make sure your domain contact details are up to date, as you will need to receive a confirmation email to the email that is used as the domain contact details.

For most other domains, the process will require an authorisation code.

How to unlock your domain and get the authorisation code

1. Login to your account

Transferring your email account

We highly recommend Google Workspace for email accounts. If you need an email forwarder, you can use the free email forwarding service that is part of TSOhost.

The transfer can take a few days or weeks to complete. If you have any issues, please get in touch with us at [email protected].
