When you are transferring a domain registration from one Registrar to another, there are specific steps you will need to take to prepare your domain. Below are the details to prepare your domain for transfer with your current Registrar and then submit the transfer request with x3reg.com. Requirements may vary for some ccTLDs (for example .UK and .ES).
More details on the transfer process and on how to move from a specific Registrar can be found here.
Steps to transfer your domain to x3reg.com:
Per ICANN’s Policy on Transfer of Registrations between Registrars, domains that are less than 60 days old or were transferred between Registrars within the last 60 days cannot be transferred. Please wait at least 60 days before transferring.
Auth/EPP codes are required for all .com, .net, .org, .us, .biz, .info, .me, .co, .io, .ca, .tv, .in, .mobi, .cc, .pe, .com.pe, .net.pe, .org.pe, .tech, .top, .party, .loan, .faith and other new gTLD domains. If you cannot request an EPP code in account with your Registrar, contact them and ask to provide it to you.
Shortly after order submission, the transfer gets initiated at the Registry, and the domain acquires ‘pendingTransfer’ status. Transfers that have reached this stage are automatically confirmed within 5 days. Finally, it may take additional 24-48 hours for the Registry to complete the transfer.
You can locate the domains that you’re transferring to us in your account. Go to Domain List, then select Filters -> Pending Transfer.
If you follow the steps above, your domain name transfer should be processed within just a few days. However, if you are preparing for a promotion, we recommend you take a few extra moments to check your payment options. The details below will assist you in getting the transfer initiated quickly, within the special, and without errors.
Have funds available within your account.
For best chances of getting into a promotion, especially one that has a time or usage limit, make sure your payment method will not give you any issues. Having the funds in your account is the best possible option. You can add funds to your account at any time. This will allow you to bypass any third party payment systems or bank errors on credit cards when completing your purchase.
To add funds to your account log in and click on Top-up next to Account Balance on the Dashboard page.
Don’t forget to add an additional $0.18 ICANN fee for each com and net domain.
Have a credit card saved within your account settings.
If you prefer not to add funds to your account, we recommend you have a saved credit card within your account settings. You can do this on the Checkout Settings page.
There are a few things that will cause a domain transfer to fail. If you have followed the preparation steps, you have eliminated the majority of these possibilities. The information below will help you understand why you will take each of these steps:
Domain is not more than 60 days old or has been transferred within the last 60 days.
Per ICANN regulations, a domain that has been newly registered or transferred from one Registrar to another within the last 60 days is not eligible for transfer.
The domain is locked or on hold with the current Registrar.
Most domains will have a Registrar Lock in place for added security. We recommend you leave these in place unless you are transferring a domain from one Registrar to another. You should have access to remove these directly within your account at your Registrar. If you do not, contact their help department for assistance;
If the domain has a hold in place, it will be reflected in the domain status when you do a WHOIS lookup. These are usually put in place at either the registry or Registrar level. You will not have direct access to remove these and will need to contact the loosing Registrar for assistance in removing.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][/vc_column][/vc_row]
