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 5 days to the transfer, the transfer will be automatically acknowledged. Normally a transfer will be completed in 5 days.
