Transfer Confirmation Email


Authorizing a Domain Transfer to Your Account

Your domain transfer will not succeed unless you unlock the domain, remove privacy, set up a valid administrative email, and apply the correct authorization code (for domain names that require one).

To Authorize a Domain Transfer to Your Account

1. Log in to your Account Manager.
2. Under the Domain Names section, select Manage Domains. The Domain Control Center opens.
3. In your folder list, click Pending Transfers.
4. Click Authorization above your list of Pending Transfers.
5. In the Transfer Authorization section, enter your Transaction ID and Security Code from the email notification you received regarding this transfer and click Continue.
6. If applicable, enter your Authorization Code that you received from the current Registrar and click Continue.

Troubleshooting Domain Transfers

Authorization Code (Auth Code) – For domains that require one, the customer must obtain an Auth Code for the transfer from the losing Registrar and enter it in the transfer confirmation page. (For information on Authorization Codes see above)

Awaiting Response – The gaining Registrar must receive a response from the Administrative (Admin) Contact within 30 days. If you have not received a confirmation email, verify that the Admin email address is valid. (See an example confirmation email above)

Failed Transfer – The domain is locked, expired, or was registered or renewed within the last 60 days and therefore cannot be transferred at this time. If your domain is locked, you must contact your current registrar to unlock it before the transfer can be completed.

No Response / Late Response – The losing Registrar must receive a response to the transfer confirmation email within their allotted timeframe. For more information about transferring domains or authorization codes, please visit our Help Center or contact the Customer Support department.
