How to Transfer your Domain
Better service, support, and savings in 3 easy steps
1. Request that your domain be unlocked
The process for this varies depending on the registrar you currently use, but you can typically unlock your domain from the Domain section of your domain control panel. Make this request to your current domain registrar.
2. Request the Authorization Code
Every domain must provide you with this code within five days of your request. You can generally request the code from the same section of the control panel that you used to unlock your domain.
3. Verify that you are authorizing the transfer
You will be contacted by your old registrar asking if you authorize the transfer, this is where having the correct contact information is important. If you are not registered as the owner of the domain, you will not be able to be contacted about the transfer even if you are the actual owner.
