Transfer Premium domains

Last Updated: December 12, 2023

Transferring premium domain names can sometimes work differently. Select domains are listed as Premiums by their respective registries. Premium domains can only be transferred to registrars which are accredited for Premium domain names- so if your outgoing transfer is failing, please make sure that your gaining registrar is able to support Premium domain names. Some TLDs require a specific accreditation, and not all premium accredited registrars are accredited for each Premium TLD.

Some Premium domains that require additional accreditation are listed below:

  • Select .TV domains are listed as Premiums by Verisign, the .TV registry. You can view their full policy on their website. Premium .TV domains can only be transferred to registrars which are accredited for Premium .TV domain names. The list of these accredited registrars can be found on on the TV website.
  • .WS, the Country Code TLD for Samoa, is another TLD that has to be transferred to specifically accredited registrars. The list of these accredited registrars can be found the WS website.
