Would anyone be able to help transfer the domain across to my shopify?

Hey, @TravelBizDad 

We have a step-by-step guide on transferring over domains here. Essentially the following steps will need to be actioned:

  1. Check your domain provider's transfer policy - Most providers support domain transfers. Before you begin the transfer process, check your domain provider's transfer policy. This will determine if your domain is currently eligible to be transferred out of their system.
  2. Prepare your domain for transfer - This step usually involves unlocking the domain that you want to transfer and generating an authorization code.
  3. Transfer your domain - this part is done from within the Shopify admin. Specifically the Online Store > Domains page. 

I'd recommend going through the guide shared above for specific instructions on transferring over a domain. If there is anything else I can help you with, please let me know.
