What is the process to transfer a domain name?

If your domain has not been registered or transferred in the last 60 days it is eligible to be transferred.

Make sure the domain owners email address is correct because they will get an email to approve the transfer.

You will also need to unlock your domain if locked, disable whois privacy, and get the transfer code from your current registrar.

Next you start and place the order by clicking on the Transfer Domain button at the top of this page.

Have the domain owner watch for the email to approve the domain transfer.  Once you get this email you will need to do as it directs you to approve the transfer.

It can take 5 to 7 days for the transfer to complete. If it hasn’t completed after 7 days please confirm the transfer was approved. You can contact InfoQuest Support for a status and to check the progress of the transfer at any time.
