Transferring A Domain *AWAY* From easyDNS
Posted by on 12 September 2017 03:55 PM
Transferring a domain away from easyDNS is a simple process that involves 3 steps:
Step 1: Unlocking Your Domain
Unlocking a domain requires the disabling of the Registry Lock. The registry lock keeps a domain from being transferred away by accident and/or Domain Slamming. To disable the Registry Lock, please do the following:
1. Log into your easyDNS account
3. In the REGISTRY LOCK section, click on EDIT
4. Choose DISABLED from the dropdown menu and click on NEXT
5. Confirm your changes
Step 2: Disabling WHOIS Privacy
NOTE: This step only applies if your domain currently has WHOIS Privacy. If your domain does not have this feature, you will not see this option within your WHOIS INFORMATION page. However some specialty domain extensions will require our staff manually disable your privacy feature on the backend. If this applies to you, please contact our support staff.
To disable your WHOIS Privacy, please do the following:
3. Choose DISABLED from the dropdown menu, and click NEXT
4. Confirm your changes
Step 3: Obtaining Your Authorization/EPP Code
The Authorization code is needed to initiate the transfer itself. Further instructions on what to do with the code should be provided to you from the registrar the domain is being transferred to. To get your code, please do the following:
1. Go to the DOMAIN ADMINISTRATION page for said domain
4. Click on CLICK FOR AUTH CODE
5. Confirm by clicking on OK
NOTE: Your Authorization code will automatically be sent to the Administrative contact for the domain so make sure the email address is up to date.
NOTE: You can also prep multiple domains at the same time via our UTILITIES tool located within the left sidebar menu. For more information on how to do this, please go HERE.
NOTE: There are some domain extensions that the 'get auth code' link is not present for. We ask that you send in an EASY-DOES.IT request and we'll send out the auth code to the listed admin.
Once the above steps have been completed, the domain will be prepped for transfer. Further instructions on how to initiate the transfer itself would have been provided to you by the registrar the domain is transferring to.
