How does a gTLD transfer work?

When we’re transferring a gTLD (generic top level domain), such as a .com, we break it into three stages:

 

  • Retrieving Admin Email: The first step is to retrieve the administrator’s email address from WHOIS data.
  • Pending Admin Approval: Once we have the administrator’s email address, we send them a link to click to approve the transfer.
  • Pending Registry Approval: Once the administrator has approved the transfer, we wait for the either the losing registrar to approve the transfer, or for the transfer to automatically be approved after 5 days. If the administrator or registrar want to cancel the transfer during this period, they are free to do so.

 

After the five day Pending Registry Approval period has expired, the gTLD is transferred across to our servers and we take possession of the domain.
