Transfer Your Domain to

This document explains the steps to transfer your domain name to Domain transfers can take from 3 to 8 days.
First make sure the following steps have been taken.
  • The domain has to have been at its current registrar for at least 60 days.
  • Domain privacy features have been disabled.
  • The domain is unlocked for transfer at its current registrar.
  • The admin contact info(especially email) is current at the current registrar.  If you have to update it, you may have to wait before you are able to transfer.

Once these steps are complete, you can place your order on our site.  For most domain names, the old registrar will send you an EPP code (or transfer autorization code) that you will need to finish the process. You may also have to click authorization links sent to the domain owners email.

Renewal Less than 45 Days Ago

If you transfer a domain to us which has been renewed at the previous registrar less than 45 days ago, the domain will not receive an additional year when the transfer completes. If you transfer the domain after 45 days of renewing it, then you will receive an additional year added to your registration. This is a registry restriction that applies to all registrars.

For help with the transfer from specific sites, refer to the list below.
