Transferring a domain name often takes five days or less, but transfers may take up to seven days to complete. In most cases, each domain transfer will be automatically renewed for 1 year from the current expiration date. To transfer a domain name, registrars need some assistance from you. In order to complete a domain transfer successfully from your current registrar to another, you need to be sure of the following items:
1: You are the OWNER or ADMIN CONTACT of the domain name and your email address is listed in domain WHOIS record accordingly. Get authorization code from existing domain registrar and give it to the new registrar so that they can start domain transfer process. In order to complete your domain name Registrar Transfer, we require approval from the domain’s Administrative Contact, this request is sent in an e-mail. If the e-mail address is invalid on the current domain registration information, your transfer may be denied.
2: “Domain Lock” must be disabled BEFORE you submit for the transfer. (you must go to your current registrar to find out if this has been disabled on your domain).
3: “Private Privacy” must be disabled BEFORE you submit for the transfer. (you must go to your current registrar to find out if this has been disabled on your domain).
