Transfer domain names from Fabulous to TheHostingShop

Overview

This page takes you step by step through the procedure for preparing to transfer your domain away from Fabulous 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 Fabulous for at least 60 days.

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

Transfer Task 2: Update Administrative contact information

Before you can transfer a domain, the Registrant and Administrative contact information (especially the email address) must be up-to-date at Fabulous, because the Administrative contact receives the transfer request and okays the transfer.

To update the Administrative contact at Fabulous:

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

  2. In the "Manage" area, click "Domains".

  3. For the domain you want to transfer, click "Contact".

  4. Select the appropriate menu items.

  5. To add a new contact, click "Add Contacts" and type in the new contact information. When you finish, click "Continue".

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, or .info domain name, obtain the authorization code from Fabulous:

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

  2. In the "Manage" area, click "Domains".

  3. For the domain you want to transfer, click "Contact".

  4. Navigate to your domain and click "Transfer". This unlocks your domain for five days.

  5. Copy and save the authorization code that appears, to include in the transfer request you submit at TheHostingShop.

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 Fabulous, you're ready to transfer to TheHostingShop.
