Domain Transfers

Transferring a domain from one registrar to another can be a bit of a process, but it is generally straightforward as long as you have all the information you need and follow the steps correctly. Here is a tutorial on how to transfer a domain from your current registrar to Nan Resources:

 

  1. Make sure your domain is eligible for transfer: Before you begin the transfer process, you will need to check that your domain is eligible for transfer. This typically means that your domain must be at least 60 days old, and it should not have been transferred within the last 60 days. Additionally, your domain should not be locked or have any pending actions on it.

  2. Check that your domain is unlocked: Some registrars lock domains to prevent them from being transferred without permission. To unlock your domain, log in to your account at your current registrar and look for an option to unlock your domain. Once your domain is unlocked, you should receive an email confirmation.

  3. Get the domain's EPP code (also known as Auth code): This is a unique code that is required to authorize the transfer. You can get the EPP code from your current registrar. Some registrars will email you the EPP code, while others may allow you to retrieve it from your account.

  4. Initiate the transfer process with the new registrar: Go to the website of the new registrar (in this case, NanResources) and initiate the domain transfer process. You will be prompted to enter the domain name and the EPP code.

  5. Verify domain ownership: After you have initiated the transfer, the new registrar will send an email to the administrative contact email address associated with your domain. You will need to follow the instructions in the email to confirm your ownership of the domain.

  6. Wait for the transfer to complete: Once you have confirmed your ownership, the new registrar will begin the transfer process, which can take anywhere from a few days to a week. You will receive an email notification when the transfer is complete.

  7. Update your DNS: After the transfer is complete, you will need to update your DNS settings to point your domain to the new registrar's name servers. This is important to ensure that your website and email services continue to work.

  8. Finalize the transfer: Once the new registrar has confirmed that the transfer is complete, you will need to log in to your account at the new registrar and finalize the transfer. This typically involves updating your contact information and agreeing to the registrar's terms of service.

Please note that the process of transferring a domain to a new registrar may vary depending on the specific registrar you are transferring from, and it is best to check with both registrars for their specific instructions. Also, during the transfer process, there is a possibility that your website and email services may be interrupted so it's important to plan accordingly.
