Pre-transfer Tips

Is the domain eligible for transfer?

For gTLDs (.com/.net/.org/ etc.), verify:

  • That the domain was created at least 60 days ago,
  • That the domain has not been transferred from another registrar in the last 60 days,
  • Ensure that the domain’s registrant (owner) information is correct and clearly visible in the whois,
  • Ensure that the administrative contact’s e-mail address is valid and is one that you have access to,
  • Ensure that the domain has not already been deleted at your current registrar.

For .co.uk/.org.uk/.me.uk domains, remember that you need to ‘push’ it to Gandi by changing the tag to “GANDI” at your current registrar.
