Registrar and registrant transfers

Changing the registrant

A registrant transfer process can be initiated anytime upon request of the current registrant. The transfer is made through domain registrar after receiving a confirmation from the current registrant and the new registrant. After the process completes, registry will send an automatic email notification to both parties.

Changing the registrar

If you wish to change your registrar you should first set an authinfo code to a domain name you wish to move. This can be arranged at your request through the current registrar or by yourself (e.g. through registrar’s online services). Next, you submit the authinfo code to a new registrar who in turn will complete the transfer process.

Example: Let’s say you choose a password “domain111”. Use the Authinfo calculator below to generate a password digest. Then submit the digest to the current registrar either online or by other means of communication (e.g. mail, phone). Once this code has been set for the domain name you wish to move, submit the original password (i.e. “domain111”) to the new registrar.
