Frequently asked questions
A trusted name since 2000, we know a thing or two about managing domains and our over 2 million customers can attest to that. Our state-of-the-art infrastructure and helpful support staff ensure you'll have an overall superior experience as we help you manage everything domain related.
As long as the domain has been registered for at least 60 days, and you have full control of the domain at the current registrar, there should be no issues with the process. Please refer to the full domain transfer checklist up above.
To start your domain transfer, simply enter the domain name into the box at the top of this page and you'll be guided through the process. Make sure your domain is in an unlocked state, that you have the authorization code, and that your contact info is up to date with your current registrar. For more details on how to do this, check out our helpful guide on transferring your domain.
A domain transfer usually takes about 5-7 days to complete. There are a few variables involved — including the cooperation of the prior registrar, and the domain owner ensuring the domain is unlocked with the correct authorization code provided.
In short, no. During the transfer process, you aren't able to change WHOIS registration information, update your nameservers, or renew the domain subscription. But not to worry, these changes can all be easily done after the transfer is complete.
Domains can be locked in order to prevent unauthorized domain transfers. While some domain providers give you tools to unlock the domain yourself, others will require you to contact them to have your domain unlocked. In some cases, the domain will not be unlocked due to special circumstances. This can include your domain name having been transferred or registered in the last 60 days, or if your domain name was locked due to an ongoing investigation or dispute.
First and foremost, your Trademark must be approved by the Trademark Clearinghouse. Upon presenting verification of this Trademark, you will have the opportunity to register a new domain name during the Sunrise period.
