The domain name transfer process can be quite simple but you need to know the inner workings of the process in order for things to flow smoothly. They can last up to 10 days and require a lot of necessary information. When you transfer your domain name, you are shifting ownership of the domain from one registrar to another. This article will not go too in-depth into the process but will cover all of the basics.
Let’s say that you own a domain and are looking to sell it or “transfer it”. This domain will need to be registered for at least 60 days in order to be transferred. The domain must be active, unlocked, and free of legal disputes. You will also need a new registrar to transfer the domain to, the contact information of the administrator of your domain, as well as an authorization code from your registrar (transfer code). The receiving registrar will then give email notification to your administrator, who will then need to approve of the transfer. Once approved the actual transfer begins. You will then receive notification if the transfer was successful.
Now that you have a rough understanding of the process, be sure to gather the necessary prerequisites if you would like to transfer your domain name. Having all the necessary information at the ready is vital in order to ensure a smooth process for both parties.
