How to transfer your domain

It's very easy to transfer your domain name to Rocket Domains. All you need to do is complete few steps with your current registrar, and some steps with Rocket domains.

 Tip: Make sure to copy your current DNS and Nameserver records from your old registrar before starting the transfer just in case.

 Note: It's not usually possible to transfer a domain for a 60-day period in the following instances: 

• When you have just registered or transferred a domain
• When you have updated the Registrant Contact's organization in case the domain's owner was an organisation, company etc.
• When you have updated the Registrant Contact's first or last name in case the domain's owner was an individual 

In order to transfer a domain, just follow the steps below:

  1. Unlock your domain
  2. Get an "Authorization code" (also known as an EPP code or transfer key)
  3. Verify "Contact information." Confirm that the domain's owner's contact information for the domain is accurate. Your old registrar may need to verify the transfer by sending an actionable email to the registered owner's email address.

     Note: For the .au domains, the actionable transfer details are sent to the registrant contact's email address.

  4. Cancel Protected registration, if any: If your domain has some sort of Protected Registration, you'll need to first cancel it.

Complete the following steps at Rocket Domains:

  1. Start domain name transfer on Rocket Domains website.
