Transfer a Domain Name

  1. Make sure you have at least 14 days before the domain expires. Leaving a couple of days extra for mishaps is a good idea.
  2. Remove whois privacy and wait until a whois on the domain shows the non-private information. Or better yet, don't use whois privacy.
  3. Unlock domain.
  4. Change nameservers to new registrar.
  5. Get auth code.
  6. Make sure email address on account is correct.
  7. Go to new registrar and request transfer.
  8. Be sure to accept transfer when you get the email requesting it.
