Transferring a domain away from Name.com

Last Updated: Oct 20, 2016

If you would like to transfer your domain name to a new registrar, there are three things you will need to do within your Name.com account prior to initiating the transfer. 

Bring up the domain details page in your account:

Log into your your Name.com account and click My Account at the top of the screen. Click my domains in the left column. In the list of domains, click on the domain name you would like to transfer.

Now that you can view the domain details, you can prepare the domain to transfer away:

1. Unlock your domain so it can transfer to the new registrar.
2. Get the auth code for the domain name, which you will need to give to your new registrar to initiate the transfer. 
3. Disable the Whois Privacy on the domain name, if you have it applied. Once you have approved the transfer, you can re-enable the Whois Privacy. 

After you have followed these steps, the domain name is eligible for transfer to the new registrar and the transfer should complete within 5-7 days, or you can contact us to expedite the transfer

Note: These are the steps for an outgoing transfer, not for internally transferring a domain name to another Name.com account
