Can transfer my domain to their registrar for me?

Yes, should you wish to change your domain registrar, you may contact and request a transfer.

.uk domains must have their IPSTAG changed to the tag of the new registrar before any transfer can take place. You must contact your existing registrar and submit a request to them to change this tag to the one you specify. The domain expiry date will remain unchanged after the transfer.

.com / .org / .net domains will be extended for a period of one year included within the price of the transfer.

.biz / .info / .us / .org domains holders must supply the unique authorization code for the domain. If you do not know this number you should contact your existing registrar and obtain it before any transfer process can begin. These domains will be extended for a period of one year included within the price of the transfer.


A transfer can be made at any time after the statutory 60 days period following your original domain registration. It is the domain owners responsibility to unlock their domain so the transfer process may be completed.

Under the present ICANN rules, the Registrar of Record may deny a transfer request only in the following specific instances:

a. Evidence of fraud.
b. UDRP action.
c. Court order by a court of competent jurisdiction.
d. Reasonable dispute over the identity of the Registered Name Holder or Administrative Contact.
e. No payment for previous registration period (including credit card charge-backs) if the domain name is past its expiration date or for previous or current registration periods if the domain name has not yet expired. In all such cases, however, the domain name must be put into "Registrar Hold"status by the Registrar of Record prior to the denial of transfer.
f. Express written objection to the transfer from the Transfer Contact. (e.g. - email, fax, paper document or other processes by which the Transfer Contact has expressly and voluntarily objected through opt-in means)
g. A domain name was already in "lock status" provided that the Registrar provides a readily accessible and reasonable means for the Registered Name Holder to remove the lock status.
h. A domain name is in the first 60 days of an initial registration period.
i. A domain name is within 60 days (or a lesser period to be determined) after being transferred (apart from being transferred back to the original Registrar in cases where both Registrars so agree and/or where a decision in the dispute resolution process so directs).

Transfer requests will be charged for irrespective of the success or failure of the transfer.

It should be noted that under the new ICANN rules, all the email addresses that the transfer authorization is sent to MUST reply in the affirmative. Failure for any of the email addresses to reply will result in the failure of the transfer process. Please see our Legal Requirements section for full details. accept no responsibility or liability for downtime, loss of services or additional costs that may be incurred by initiating a registrar transfer of your domain.
