Transfer a domain to Thexyz

edited January 2015 in Domain Names
A domain name transfer involves a domain name that you’ve already registered with another company but wish to transfer over to us.

There are four general requirements for a successful transfer of a domain name:

The domain name must be at least 60 days old - should not be registered less than 60 days ago
The domain name must be unlocked for transfer
The domain's EPP transfer authorization key must be provided - it could be acquired from the domain name’s current registrar
The transfer verification e-mail must be responded to - this e-mail is sent within 24 hours after the domain transfer is initiated to the Administrative Contact e-mail address specified in the WHOIS record of the domain name
Once the domain transfer is confirmed by following the instructions in the transfer verification e-mail, the transfer procedure becomes fully automated and may take 3-5 business days to complete.

Some specific domain types (TLDs) have different requirements for transferring a domain name. Some TLDs cannot be transferred at all. However, the afore-mentioned requirements are valid for the majority of the TLDs (domain types). Here are a few exceptions:

.UK domain names (.co.uk / .me.uk / .org.uk)

Particularly the .UK domain names involve quite a specific domain name transfer procedure. None of the general requirements apply here. Instead, the the two steps below must be followed:

1. Contact the current company that you have the domain name with and have them change the IPS tag to: PDR-IN
2. Once you change the IPS tag you will receive a security code from our registrar within one or two hours. Please insert this code in the EPP field when ordering the transfer or provide us with that code if you have already paid for the transfer.

After that the transfer itself becomes a very seamless and smooth procedure.

Transferring .EU domain names

The only requirement for transferring a .EU domain name is to respond to the verification e-mail. What is specific for this TLD is that upon a successful transfer, the expiration date becomes one year as counted from the date of the successful transfer completion instead of adding one year to the expiration date the domain name had prior to the transfer.
