How does one transfer ownership of a domain name?

There are so many reasons why one would like to transfer ownership of a domain name. It could be either you've sold your domain name, or you've found a better deal for domain registration or want to change domain ownership to someone else. Whatever the reason is transferring ownership of a domain name is not a complicated process given that you follow the necessary steps carefully. The exact transfer steps may vary from one domain registrar to the other, but it will consist of these essential steps:

Step 1: Disable WHOIS or the domain privacy

The new domain registrar will have to verify the actual owner of the domain name, which is not possible if you have WHOIS privacy enabled. So ensure that the domain privacy has been switched off before the transfer process begins.

Step 2: update your contact information.

During the domain transfer process, you will be regularly contacted by both your old and new registrar. Therefore the contact information that is registered on your old domain registrar should be up to date. If you do not remember your current domain registrar, you can look it up by performing a WHOIS search. If you change your contact information, it will result in a sixty-day transfer lock on the domain to prevent fraudulent activity.

Step 3: Request that your domain to be unlocked.

Most domains have a transfer lock applied to prevent unwanted or fraudulent transferring of the domain. In this case, you need to request the domain to be unlocked. This may vary depending on the domain registrar, but you can unlock your domain from your domain control panel.

Step 4: Get the transfer authorization code

Once your domain has been unlocked, you have to request for a transfer authorization code. This is like a password that will allow you to transfer the domain. It should only be accessible by the actual owner of a domain name. Every domain must provide you with this code within five days of your request. Some registrars allow you to generate the code in the domain control panel, while others will send it to you via email.

Step 5: Request for domain transfer on the new domain registrar.

Create an account with the new registrar then request for a transfer. Initiate a transfer can be done at the transfer domain section in the control panel for your new registrar. The authorization code from step four will be needed to request a transfer. This might involve subscribing for a year, which will begin once the remaining time on the old domain name is used up.

Step 6: Verification that you are authorizing the transfer.

You will be emailed by your old registrar asking if you authorize the transfer, using the contact information you have provided to your old registrar. This is why it is essential to have the correct contact information.

Step 7: Relevant settings for the transfer.

Once the transfer has been authorized, your new domain registrar will configure a DNS and server. After the settings have been set up by, it may take up to a few days for the DNS changes to be acknowledged worldwide. Your website should still be available.

Step 8: Cancel your old domain service.

Once the domain transfer is complete, you can cancel your service with your old registrar. Ensure that the transfer is successful before canceling the previous service, or your website might go down until the transfer is effective worldwide.
