Keep domain privacy disabled
The first thing that you need to start the process is – make sure that the domain privacy is disabled or paused. This can be done from the control panel of the register by logging into the control panel and migrating it to the interface, to manage the domain.
Remove the lock
Once you are done with the first step, next you have to unlock the domain name. In the control panel of the register, you can find a link for unlocking the domain name. You can navigate through this link and unlock the domain name. With this, you will be able to transfer the domain name to new registrar.
- Get the transfer code: In the control panel of the registrar, you can find the link for getting the transfer code. You can just click on the link to get the code. You can note it down.
- Initiate the transfer: Once you get the code, you can start the transfer process by entering the transfer code in the account. For this, you have to login-in to the registrar account.
- Transfer request: After completing the above step, you have to access the transfer form and enter the current domain owner’s information such as – email address, owner name etc. By this, the transfer process gets initiated and a request will be sent to the new owner.
- Accepting the request: In order to get the transfer process completed, the new registrar has to approve the request notification they receive. If they confirm the request, then only the domain transfer will be validated. However, if they ignore the request, it will be expired after some time. After the confirmation mail is accepted, it will take a few days to get the full rights for the new owner to handle the domain, based on the registrar’s involvement.
Denial of transfer: In some cases, the old owner may deny the transfer – especially, when the renewal fee is due or when the domain name gets expired. So, make sure to pay all the dues, before you start the process of transferring your domain name.
With this, the domain transfer process gets completed. So, make sure that the process happen in a smooth way and the domain name gets transferred to new registrar.
