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. 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 10 days to the transfer, the transfer will be automatically acknowledged. Normally a transfer will be completed in 10 days. After a transfer, our system syncronizes the owner of the domain from the registry to our system. If possible, you can start an owner change if you want to replace the synced owner. Please note that if a .CN domain name is registered with a direct accredited CNNIC registrar (Domestic), it can only be transferred to a gateway registrar (Foreign) with a manual procedure. Please contact our support via email and send us the domain name and the respective authorization code.
