How do I prepare my domain name for transfer?

Ready to transfer your domain name? Verify that you’ve got the following ducks in a row with your current registrar and you will be.

  • Unlock your domain name.  
  • Disable your domain’s privacy settings.  
  • Ensure the admin contact information is updated and correct.  
  • Get your transfer authorization code, also known as an EPP code.  
    • Depending on your registrar, you may need to contact them directly for your code.  
  • Ensure your domain is at least 60 days old or opt-out of your domain lock. 
  • Make sure your domain isn’t tangled up in any legal disputes as that’s a quick way to get it locked at the registry level.
