Description

The domain transfer command enables you to transfer a domain from a different registrar or a different user in the system to your account. By using domain extensions, the transfer can be started with new domain contacts and nameservers.

Note

  • If we can not determine all the information automatically, you must use the domain extensions to provide the missing/required data. The information that has to be provided depends on the TLD.
  • The nackReason for a rejected gTLD transfer is mandatory.
  • For certain TLDs the period is ignored.
