Domain name subscribers are free to find a new registrar whenever they want. Your responsibility is to make sure the transfer is as smooth as possible, without problems or delays, regardless of whether you are the old registrar or the new.

When you are transferring a domain name subscription from another registrar to your account, you can do it with a transfer code or a one-time code.

Transfer code: The subscriber receives the transfer code from the current registrar and gives it to the new registrar. The transfer code may only be set and changed by the current registrar of the domain name subscription.

One-time code: a one-time code is requested by the new registrar and sent by email to the subscriber. When a one-time code is requested the current registrar must help the subscriber to update the email address if necessary.

Regardless of the method used, the current registrar must within five working days and at no charge assist the subscriber in changing to another registrar.

Acquire a domain name subscription left without a registrar

Sometimes subscriptions are not associated with a registrar and are left with the registrar ID REG0. The transfer codes for these subscriptions were deleted when the registrar renounced registrar liability for the domains. In these cases, you must initiate a regular transfer command and leave the field for the transfer code (AuthInfo) blank

If you are acquiring an expired domain name, you need to confirm that you want to extend the domain name subscription (renew domain name), while also retrieving the subscription from REG0. This is done as part of the transfer procedure.
