1. Make sure that you have access to the email address listed as the admin contact for the domain. Our transfer
process is email verification based, so if your email
address listed for the administrative contact of the domain
is not current, the transfer will fail.
2. Make sure your domain name is not
expired. It is advisable to initiate your transfer at least
7 days prior to expire date, so there will be enough time to complete the process.
3. Most transfers require an authentication code (EPP Code, Transfer Code) when transferring
to Total Online Solutions, Inc.. You can obtain an authentication code from
your current registrar (where the domain is currently registered).
4. We cannot transfer domains that are less
than 60 days old. If you registered your domain within
the last 60 days, please wait until after 60 days before starting
a transfer to Total Online Solutions, Inc..
5. Make sure your domain name is not locked at the current registrar.
Please contact your current registrar to make sure
there are no holds or locks when transferring your domain
name.(many registrars will automatically place a lock on the domain for security)
6. Domain transfers add 1 year onto your
expire date, so you don't lose any time you have paid for. There is one exception to this rule: If the
domain was recently reactivated from an expired state, you will not get a year added to the expire date.
