Why would I transfer a domain name?

The most common reasons for transferring a domain name are to take advantage of a different registrars products or prices, to consolidate all your domain names with a single registrar, or to pursue a different level or style of customer service.

At NetCascade we take domain management and security very seriously and we work hard to provide the best services we possible can.  Once a domain is transferred to us, you have full access thru our client portal or with our domain access panel we provide only to our clients.

Transfer Fees

When transferring a domain name from another registrar a fee is applied.  This fee is usually set at the current yearly renewal fee and an additional renewal year is added to the vast majority of transfers.  So, at the completion of the transfer, your domain's expiration date will have increased by one year

We do not charge for transfers unless they are successfully completed.  We may, however, place a hold on funds while the transfer is in progress.   Likewise, we do not charge you to transfer your domain to another registrar.

FAQ On Domain Transfer
Per ICANN regulations, once the Gaining Registrar has received transfer verification from the registrant or administrative contact for the domain(s), the Registrar of Record has five days to release the domain to the gaining Registrar. The transfer will automatically complete within the five (5) day waiting period.

NOTE: The five day waiting period begins once the Registrar of Record has been notified of the transfer request by the registry. This typically occurs within 12-24 hours after the transfer has been approved by you or your client.
Registrar transfers may require a transfer authorization code or EPP key for each domain name being transferred. The code is generated by the current registrar and verified through the global registry for validity. No two codes are alike; you need the unique EPP code for each domain you are transferring. The code is not only alphanumeric and case-sensitive, but may include special characters (a comma, a bracket, a period, a parenthesis.)

The following domains require an EPP transfer authorization code:

In most cases, if you have submitted a transfer request before the domain expires, and it has a "pending transfer" status, the domain will continue to be functional and will not expire, even if the transfer has not completed prior to the scheduled expiration date. There is typically a 5-7 day process once you have submitted your transfer for it to complete and be in your account with the new registrar. Please note that most TLDs will follow this rule, but please check for specific exceptions for ccTLDs.

Your nameservers will also not change when the domain is transferred.

Note for outgoing transfers: Our DNS services are provided at no cost while your domain is registered with NetCascade. If your domain is utilizing our DNS services, and is transferred away to another registrar, you would need to purchase DNS hosting to continue using our DNS. Your domain will not continue to resolve to our name servers once it has been transferred away from the NetCascade credential and marked as transferred away within our database.

Registries will not allow the transfer of domains with the following statuses:

  • clientTransferProhibited (Registrar-Lock)
  • serverTransferProhibited (Registry-Lock)
  • redemptionPeriod
  • pendingDelete

The Registrar of Record may deny a transfer request only in the following specific instances:

  • Evidence of fraud
  • UDRP action
  • Court order by a court of competent jurisdiction
  • Reasonable dispute over the identity of the Registered Name Holder or Administrative Contact
  • No payment for previous registration period (including credit card charge-backs) if the domain name is past its expiration date or for previous or current registration periods if the domain name has not yet expired. In all such cases, however, the domain name must be put into "Registrar Hold" status by the Registrar of Record prior to the denial of transfer.
  • Express written objection to the transfer from the Transfer Contact. (e.g. - email, fax, paper document or other processes by which the Transfer Contact has expressly and voluntarily objected through opt-in means)
  • A domain name was already in “lock status” provided that the Registrar provides a readily accessible and reasonable means for the Registered Name Holder to remove the lock status.
  • The transfer was requested within 60 days of the creation date as shown in the registry Whois record for the domain name.
  • A domain name is within 60 days (or a lesser period to be determined) after being transferred (apart from being transferred back to the original Registrar in cases where both Registrars so agree and/or where a decision in the dispute resolution process so directs). "Transferred" shall only mean that an inter-registrar transfer has occurred in accordance with the procedures of this policy.

Instances when the requested change of Registrar may not be denied include, but are not limited to:

  • Nonpayment for a pending or future registration period
  • No response from the Registered Name Holder or Administrative Contact.
  • Domain name in Registrar Lock Status, unless the Registered Name Holder is provided with the reasonable opportunity and ability to unlock the domain name prior to the Transfer Request.
  • Domain name registration period time constraints, other than during the first 60 days of initial registration or during the first 60 days after a registrar transfer.
  • General payment defaults between Registrar and business partners / affiliates in cases where the Registered Name Holder for the domain in question has paid for the registration.

For a transfer into our system that was rejected by the Registrar of Record, please contact that registrar. We do not have access to the reason(s) the current registrar has rejected your transfer request. We do not charge for failed or canceled transfer requests.
