Troubleshooting an internal transfer error

Last Updated: Jan 20, 2022

Account transfers are easy and instant, so there are rarely issues, but they do occasionally occur. The two of the most common errors occur when attempting to transfer a newly registered domain or when the account code is not correct.   

When finishing an internal transfer, you may get a notice that says Error: Cannot Transfer (Domain Name). Domain was Registered in the Past 5 Days. This is an anti-fraud measure that we cannot bypass. You simply need to wait until 5 days after the registration date to complete the account transfer.

The second error you might see is the incorrect account code. If you see The Account Code is Invalid then you do not have the correct or complete code.
