The transfer process differs between domain authorities, for example .uk domains require that the IPS tag is changed, however most other types require an authorisation code to initiate the transfer.
Enter you domain into our handy domain transfer checker, which will clarify your domain type and will provide you with easy to follow step-by-step instructions.
The domain that you are looking to transfer must have been registered (with no changes to the registrant details) for at least 60 days. When a domain is registered or transferred it is subject to a 60-day lock period to protect against any unauthorised transfers.
The authorities for some domain types insist that domains must be renewed as part of the transfer process. You don't have to wait until expiry is due, the renewal will simply add a further 12 months on to the current registration period. Upon checking the eligibility
to transfer your domains, we'll inform you if you're required to renew your domain as part of the transfer process.
.uk domains tend to be transferred the same day and can take anything between 30mins to a few hours. Other types of domain usually take between 5-7 days from the date that the transfer was initiated.
