Transfer domain names from Moniker to TheHostingShop

Overview

This page takes you step by step through the procedure for preparing to transfer your domain away from Moniker 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 Moniker 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 Moniker, because it is these contacts who receive the transfer request and okay the transfer.

To update these contacts at Moniker:

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

  2. In the "Manage Domains" menu at lower left, click "View Domains".

  3. In the list of domains, select the check box next to the domain you want to transfer.

  4. Click the "Contacts" tab.

  5. Click the "Batch Tool" link.

  6. Confirm that the Registrant and Administrative contact information are accurate.

  7. If you make any changes, click "Save".

Transfer Task 3: Obtain the authorization code and unlock 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, or .us domain name, obtain the authorization code from Moniker

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

  2. In the "Manage Domains" menu at lower left, click "View Domains".

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

  4. Click the "Transfer-Out" tab.

  5. On the "Reason For Transferring Out" dropdown menu, select a reason for transferring.

  6. In the "Suggestions" text box, type any suggestions or feedback regarding your transfer.

  7. Select the "I Have Read and Understand Monider's Transfer Out Policy" check box.

  8. Click "Save". This unlocks the domain and emails the authorization key to the Registrant. You must supply this key when you submit the transfer request at TheHostingShop.

To retag a .uk domain name:

  • Contact Moniker 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 Moniker in any order.

  • If you submit the transfer request to TheHostingShop first, you must submit the request to Moniker within a week.

  • If you submit the transfer request to Moniker 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.

Transfer Task 4: Transfer the domain name to TheHostingShop

Once you have prepared the domain name at Moniker, you're ready to transfer to TheHostingShop.
