Transfer of a domain name

Conditions for a transfer

To transfer a domain name, you must meet the following conditions:

  • The domain name has to be unlocked at your current provider and must be in a transferable state
  • The domain name is not close to its expiry date (at least 15 days)
  • The domain name must have been created for more than 60 days, or renewed for more than 45 days
  • The contact information are up to date at the whois of the current registrar
  • The e-mail address in the whois is usable and not anonymized
Usually one or two emails are sent to confirm the transfer but since General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), you can receive no e-mail depending on your registrar and registry. In case you receive no e-mail, the transfer will be validated after 14 days
