Please, keep in mind that due to the many different types of rules concerning domain name transfers it is not possible to make an article covering all possibilities.
When in doubt you can consult our documentation about TLDs where we list the procedures for most TLDs we can offer. This documentation can be found here.
Please note that you can also search in our knowledge base by simply typing the TLD in the search bar at the top of this page.
In general, a few things can happen when transferring a domain name.
- A transfer code can be needed (you may request this at your current registrar)
- The owner may have to approve of the transfer by clicking a link that is sent to them
- Signed forms may be required
- ..procedures can differ depending on the domain extension.
Check the TLD documentation for the domain in question to check what the procedures are. The documentation also tells you how long a transfer can take.
