Transfer Domain Name

Transfer your domain name to Octopoly and get with every domain name

For a flawless domain transfer, follow these simple steps:

1. Unlock your domain

Domain names need to be unlocked by your current registrar. Sometimes it has to be done manually in their account, sometimes it happens automatically when you ask for the authcode, depending on your registrar and the extension.

2. Ask for the authcode

Ask your current registrar for the domain transfer code, also known as authcode (authinfo). Some registrars provide you with the authcode by email, some show it in their account next to the domain name.

3. Initiate the transfer

Start the transfer, sit back and relax. Our system will keep you updated on the status. You’ll receive a confirmation email once the transfer has processed successfully and the name is in your Octopoly account.

Domain Transfer Procedure

A domain transfer is when a domain owner decides to transfer their domain name to another domain registrar. Transferring a domain name is simply the change of your domain name provider. Domain owners are free to choose their domain registrar and are entitled to transfer their domain name between domain providers as they wish. However, there is a 60 day lock period, which starts whenever a domain name has been transferred.

Why domain owners change their domain registrar

Maybe you have your domains registered with multiple registrars and prefer to have all with one single registrar.
You might have issues with your current domain provider; maybe their service quality is decreasing.
Your current domain name registrar might stop offering a certain feature or service which you like.
Or a different domain registrar offers products and services your current partner doesn’t.
Perhaps you want to get cheaper domain names and reduce your renewal fees.

As you can see, there are many reasons why a domain owners might consider changing their domain provider. And there is no reason why they shouldn´t, Domain Transfers between domain registrars are generally pretty simply and straightforward. Let us know if you are considering transferring your domain names to Octopoly. We are happy to assist you with your transfer or simply take care of the transfer procedure for you.
