We will make your domain transfer to easyname easy!
A domain transfer is comparable to switching your mobile phone service provider. A huge offer of better service, a better connection, a good support team or a good reputation can be reasons to transfer. If you want to keep your phone number, so your friends, family and collegues can still reach you, you have to prepare that in advance. It's similar to a domain transfer.
A domain transfer needs time. Although it does not take too much time, you have to count on starting two weeks before the expiration date in case of international transfers and to start five days before for .AT and .DE domains.
In order to keep the domain transfer without complications we offer you a checklist with explanations. If you fulfill all items on the checklist, the domain transfer will run smoothly.
For the domains with the extension .CC, .COM, .NET, .ORG, .INFO, .BIZ and .NAME you have to consider also the following:
The domain transfer is not possible if the domain has expired already. However you can register a new domain at a favorable price.
The domains with the extensions .DE and .AT can be transferred shortly. However it is advisable to do the transfer soon and to start the transfer process at least five days before the expiration date of the domain. This way you have a reasonable amount of time to react in case of unexpected difficulties e.g rejection of the transfer e-mail.
If you fulfill all items on the checklist, it is improbable that problems arise.
After the transfer has started, a transfer request will be send to the e-mail address of the domains´ owner. The e-mail address registered in the WHOIS (database with information about the owner of a domain) will be used. If the data is up to date, a delay or a repeated transfer request can be avoided. If you did not receive an e-mail although you registered your e-mail address properly, please check your spam account.
Services like WhoisGuard protect your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address against public insight into the WHOIS data base. Deactivate this service before starting with the domain transfer since this protected data is necessary for the transfer itself.
The domain has to be older than 60 days or respectively the domain transfer has to be older than 60 days
Die Regel der 60 Tage Transfersperre wurde von den jeweiligen Registries aufgestellt und jeder Domainprovider muss sich an diese Vorgabe halten. Vermutungen, warum es diese 60 Tage Sperre für Domain Transfers gibt, gehen von “Schutz vor Hijacking” über “Hürde für Domain Name Speculators”. In den meisten Fällen sollte diese Regelung aber keine großen Probleme mit sich bringen.
Is it possible to avoid this 60 days locking device?
No, it is not possible. But it happens that domains which are older than 60 days are not transferred because the WHOIS entry has been updated. If only the e-mail address has been updated but not the entry of the provider (registrar), then it is not a reason to be locked and contrary to the ICANN guide line.
Ist der Status der Domain in “REGISTRAR-LOCK” oder “clientTransferProhibited” (im WHOIS-Eintrag ersichtlich), kann die Domain nicht zu einem neuen Registrar (Provider) transferiert werden. Heben Sie diese Sperre in der Domain Verwaltung Ihres alten Registrars auf bzw. lassen Sie diese Sperre durch Ihren alten Registrar aufheben falls Sie Ihre Domains nicht selbst verwalten können.
Depending on the provider, the EPP Key can be called differently. Synonyms for it are AUTH Code, Authorization Key, Authorization Code, Transfer Authorization Code, EPP Code orTransfer Key. However it never changes its function, namely to prevent the not authorized domain transfer.
Every domain has a unique EPP Key known only by the registrant (domain owner) and the current registrar (provider). The domain owner uses the EPP Key as identification tool when the domain transfer from the current to the new provider is done. This way an imminent abuse can be prevented.
The EPP Key is found in every part of the domain management. If not it can be required directly at the provider (registrar).
