How to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another?

Transferring a domain name from one registrar to another is done by providing a transfer code, also known as EPP code or AUTH CODE.

The transfer code is used as a protection mechanism and ensures that only the legitimate domain name owner can control the transfer of the domain.

Ideally, the domain transfer code should be available in the control panel, provided by the current registrar. In case you are unable to find the domain transfer code, you should contact the technical support of the registrar and request the code.

Depending on your domain name settings, you may need to turn off the Domain Lock ban. This option should be accessible in the domain's management panel.

When you submit a request for domain name transfer, you will automatically receive in your WHOIS mail box an email from the new registrar containing an Approve link.

To continue the transfer process, you must confirm the request within five days by clicking on the Approve link in the email. By performing this procedure, you verify yourlself as the domain name owner and confirm your desire to transfer the domain to the new registrar (if you miss to confirm the transfer by clicking the Approve link, the current registrar will cancel the transfer).

With clicking the Approve link, the actual move of the domain begins, which lasts for 5 to 7 days. During that period, the current and the new registrars are exchanging official information concerning the transfer of the domain.

During this period, you are not required to take any further action. After the successful transfer, the domain name will be added to the new registrar's database for the requested by the registrant period.
