How can I Transfer my Domain to You?

If you wish to transfer your domain to us please visit our Shopping Cart. Domain transfers take up to 7 days when done correctly.

MUST READ BEFORE TRANSFERRING

There's two things that must be setup correctly on your domain or the transfer will fail. You must check these 2 things before trying to do a transfer.

1. You must check to make sure if the email on your domain is correct. Once you start the transfer it is going to email this address asking for permission to move the domain. If the email listed isn't your email or doesn't work you can't respond to this email thus the transfer will fail.

2. You must make sure the domain isn't locked. If it is locked even if you agree to the transfer it's going to fail.

3. A Domain Name can only be Transferred 60 days after it was first Registered or 60 days after a previous successful Transfer.

You can check both of the above by going to whois.domaintools.com once here type yourdomain.com in the field and click submit. Find where it says "Administrative Contact:" This is where your correct email must be listed. Now scroll down to where it says "Status:" if the status says locked you must get this changed before doing the transfer.

To get the above changed you must contact the registar you bought the domain from to do it for you (some let you make the changes yourself from their control panel).

Note: You can't transfer a domain unless it has been at the current registar for at least 60 days. Some domain registrars will not initiate or approve transfers for domains which are approaching their expiration date (some registrars cut off transfers 10 days prior to the domain's expiration however policies vary) so if you decide to transfer your domain registration for the best results you should look to initiate the process at least two weeks before the domain is due to expire.
