3 Simple Steps For Successful .ORG, .US, .BIZ and .INFO Transfers

Here’s how to easily transfer a .ORG, .US, .BIZ or .INFO domain to another registrar.

This works differently compared to .COM and .NET transfers because you first need to obtain a “transfer authorization code” from your current registrar.

Although the system is standard, some details in procedure and form-filling may vary from registrar to registrar.

1. Email Address. When you initiate a transfer request, your current registrar will send the “transfer authorization code” in an email. So before you start, you need to make sure your domain’s current admin contact email address is working and is free from spam filters.

2. Login to your domain account at your current registrar and navigate to the “Authorization Codes” section. Often this will be combined with un-locking your domain, known as “Registrar Lock” and “Transfer Shield”. Remember that domains cannot be transferred unless they are unlocked. After unlocking your domain, follow the procedure to have your domain’s “transfer authorization code” emailed to you.

3. You’re nearly done! Now as soon as you receive your “authorization code”, point your browser to your new registrar’s web site and fill in the domain transfer form including your “authorization code”.

That’s it!
