Transfer domain names from domaindiscount24 or Key-Systems to TheHostingShop

Overview

This page takes you step by step through the procedure for preparing to transfer your domain away from domaindiscount24 or Key-Systems and into an account at TheHostingShop.

The transfer process involves the tasks that are described below. Following the transfer tasks, we provide information about tracking the progress of the transfer, and ICANN rules regarding rejections.

Transfer Task 1: Verify that the domain name is eligible for transfer

To make sure your domain name can be transferred, check the following:

  • The domain name has been registered for at least 60 days, and has been at domaindiscount24 or Key-Systems for at least 60 days.

  • The domain name is not in "client update prohibited" status.

Transfer Task 2: Confirm contact information

Before you can transfer a domain, the Registrant and Administrative contact information must be up-to-date at domaindiscount24 or Key-Systems, because it is these contacts who receive the transfer request and okay the transfer.

To update these contacts at domaindiscount24 or Key-Systems:

  1. Log on to your account at DomainDiscount24.com.

  2. Click "Configure your domains".

  3. Click the domain name you want to transfer.

  4. In the dropdown menu, select "Update Whois".

  5. Click the contact you want to update.

  6. Type in any updates or corrections.

  7. Click "Submit".

Transfer Task 3: Unlock the domain (if locked)

Before you can transfer a domain away from domaindiscount24 or Key-Systems, the domain must be unlocked. Locking is a feature most registrars offer to prevent unauthorized transfers (hijacking) of domains.

To unlock:

  1. Log on to your account at DomainDiscount24.com.

  2. On the menu, click "MyDD24".

  3. Select the check box next to the domain name you want to transfer.

  4. Open the dropdown command menu and click "Unlock selected domain".

  5. Click "Submit".

Transfer Task 4: Obtain the authorization code or retag the domain name

Some TLDs require that you provide an authorization code for your domain name, to provide an extra level of assurance that the transfer request comes from an authorized source.

To transfer a .com, .net, .org, .info, .biz, .us, .name, .cn, .tw, .cc, or .in domain name, obtain the authorization code from domaindiscount24 or Key-Systems

  1. Log on to your account at DomainDiscount24.com.

  2. On the menu, click "MyDD24".

  3. Click "Domain Admin".

  4. Next to the domain name/Whois, click the green symbol.

  5. The authorization code displays in a new. Record it so you can supply it in the transfer request at TheHostingShop.

To retag a .uk domain name:

  • Contact domaindiscount24 or Key-Systems and ask them to retag the domain name to ISP tag TheHostingShop.

  • Alternatively, you can retag/detag directly through Nominet, for a fee.

  • When you transfer a .uk domain name, use the Auto verification transfer method.

  • You can submit the transfer requests to TheHostingShop and domaindiscount24 or Key-Systems in any order.

  • If you submit the transfer request to TheHostingShop first, you must submit the request to domaindiscount24 or Key-Systems within a week.

  • If you submit the transfer request to domaindiscount24 or Key-Systems first, you must submit the request to TheHostingShop by the next 8th day of the calendar month.

Transfers of TLDs other than those named above do not require any codes or tags.
