How do I Transfer a Domain?
To transfer a domain name to Sea N Sun, you might need an authorization code (also known as an EPP code or transfer key) from your current registrar. Some registrars display the authorization code in your account with them, while others email it upon request to the administrative contact's (admin) email address for your domain name.
The image below provides a brief overview of the domain name transfer process. You must take certain actions in your account at the other registrar, and you must take other actions in your account with us.
Prepare to Transfer Your Domain Names
(1.) Ensure that the administrative contact (admin) for your domain name has a valid email address in the Whois database. Both registrars use this email address to send you important information about the transfer. If your domain name has private registration (also known as privacy), a service that hides your personal information from the public, you cannot verify your administrative contact's email address in the Whois database. You must contact your current registrar to cancel the private registration, and then you can update the email address.
(2.) Unlock your domain name at your current registrar.
(3.) Get an authorization code (also known as an EPP code or transfer key) from your current registrar, if required. Some domain name extensions, primarily country-code top-level domain names (ccTLDs), do not require an authorization code. Some registrars display the authorization code in your account with them, while others email it to the admin email address upon request.
(4.) Purchase a domain name transfer from our website. When you purchase the transfer, select one of the following nameserver options:
- Keep the existing nameservers - If you have a hosted website for your domain name (here or elsewhere), select this option to ensure that your site does not go down during the transfer.
- Change to park nameservers - If you have email with us for the domain name, are using our Off-site DNS, or created a Premium DNS transfer template prior to the transfer, select this option.
(5.) We send an email message to the domain name's administrative contact (admin) after you purchase the transfer. The email contains the transfer IDs (transaction ID and security code) you need to authorize the transfer in your account with us.
Authorizing the Domain Name Transfer
(1.) Log in to your Account Manager.
(2.) In the My Account section on the left sidebar, click Domain Transfers. The Pending Transfers page displays.
(3.) For the domain name you want to authorize, in the Status column, click Authorize. The Transfer Details window displays.
(4.) Click Authorize transfer now.
(5.) In the Transaction ID and Security Code fields, enter the transfer IDs we sent to the administrative contact's (admin) email address, and then click Next.
(6.) Enter the Authorization Code from the current registrar (if applicable), select I authorize the transfer, and then click Finish.
(7.) Click OK.
Checking the Progress of Your Transfer
After you authorize the transfer, we send a request to your domain name's registry, and then they notify your current registrar. Your current registrar might send a request for transfer approval to the domain name's admin email address. Then, your current registrar sends an acceptance or rejection notice back to the registry, and then the registry notifies us of the transfer status.
On the Pending Transfers page in the Domain Manager, you can track your transfer's progress.
To Check the Progress of Your Transfer
(1.) Log in to your Account Manager.
(2.) In the My Account section on the left sidebar, click Domain Transfers. In the Pending Transfers Grid, the following columns display information for each domain name pending transfer:
Status - Displays the domain name's current status in the transfer process. For more information about a domain name's transfer status, hover over its progress bar, click the ? icon, or click the Action Required or Error link that displays (if applicable).
Admin Email - Displays the admin email address currently associated with the domain name. This is the email address to which we and your current registrar send important transfer information.
