Before the transfer can be started, please unlock the domain for transfer by the old registrar. The transfer has to be initiated through our system. A valid Authorization Code has to be provided to initiate a transfer successfully. You may obtain the authorization code from the old registrar. The Owner of the domain will receive a Form of Authorization by mail. This Form of authorization has to be confirmed by clicking a link. After the transfer is started successfully, the old registrar has to give an acknowledge to the transfer. If the old registrar will not respond within 5 days to the transfer, the transfer will be automatically acknowledged. Normally a transfer will be completed in 5 days.
