FAQs


At ELITE, Domain transfers are charged per name at a flat fee, so you'll pay nothing beyond this initial cost and ICANN registration, where appropriate. We also let you keep any time left on your current registrations — and throw in a free year of registration for each transfer*. Depending on how many domains you’re moving, this could add up to significant savings.

  1. Make sure the email address listed for the administrative (admin) contact on each domain is up-to-date. Your current registrar might use this address to communicate with you during the transfer process. For .au domains, the admin contact is called the registrant contact.
  2. Next unlock each of the domain names you'd like to transfer. Contact your current registrar for details on how to do this.
  3. You may need an authorization code (sometimes called a transfer key or EPP code) from your current registrar. This isn't necessary in all cases, such as when transferring country-code Top-level Domain Names (ccTLDs). If the authorization codes aren't shown in your account manager, ask your current registrar to email them to you.
  4. Buy ELITE domain transfers for up to 500 of your domain names at once, listing each one on a separate line in our bulk domain transfer tool. If the extension you'd like to transfer isn't listed, you can't transfer that domain to us.

 

Under Select Your Transfer Nameservers, choose one of these options:

 

a) Keep my current nameservers. If your transferred domain name is associated with an active website, choose this option to make sure there's no interruption in site performance during the transfer.
 
b) Switch to ELITE's park nameservers. If you have an email with us for the domain name, are using our Off-site DNS, or created a Premium DNS transfer template prior to the transfer, select this option.
 

NOTE: If you select this option and are not using Off-site DNS or a Premium DNS transfer template, we park the domain name on our parking nameservers and create a default zone file in your account with us. You can use the Zone File Editor in the DNS Manager to customize the new zone file. For more information, see Managing DNS for Your Domain Names.

 

Please note there are special instructions for transferring .uk, .ca, .eu, .es, .se and .au domain names to ELITE.
