Domain Transfer

(API Command reference » TransferDomain)

Transfer procedure

  • The transfer is submitted to the registry and the losing registrar is automatically notified by them.
  • The losing registrar sends an email to the owner (and optionally admin) contact, informing about the transfer; this may include options to approve and/or deny the transfer. If neither explicitly approved nor denied, the transfer will be automatically finalized after 5 days.

Transfer notes

  • A .bond domain transfer must be initiated with a so-called authorisation code, (auth-code) which can be obtained from the current registrar through the owner/admin contact of the domain.
  • Ensure that your respective domain does not have a lock-status (clientTransferProhibited and/or serverTransferProhibited). This can be seen in WHOIS.
  • If the domain has a client-side transfer lock, the owner can ask the current registrar to have the lock removed.

These procedures only apply for domain transfers between registrars. For internal transfers between resellers, please consult our documentation about internal transfers/usertransfers.

Auth-Codes

The format for auth info requires a minimum length of 16 characters and a maximum length of 48 characters.

Additionally, auth info must contain at least two of each of the following three character types:

  • Alphabetic characters: a-z; A-Z
  • Numeric characters: 1-9
  • Special characters: -.,:;[]{}_+=@#$^*?!~

Domain Restore
