Transfer domain names from DomainDiscover to TheHostingShop

Overview

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

To update these contacts at DomainDiscover:

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

  2. Select "My Account" and then "Account Services".

  3. Click "Change Contact Information".

  4. Follow the instructions on the interface to make any needed changes.

Transfer Task 3: Unlock the domain name and obtain the authorization code

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, or .cc domain name, obtain the authorization code from DomainDiscover

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

  2. Click "domains".

  3. click "registrar lock".

  4. Turn registrar lock "off" and save changes.

  5. click "view auth-info".

  6. Copy and store the authorization code; you'll need to supply it when you submit the transfer request at TheHostingShop.

Transfers of TLDs other than those named above do not require an authorization code.

Transfer Task 4: Transfer the domain name to TheHostingShop

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