US domain names (eg: .com, .net, .org, etc.) can be transferred to Pickaweb using this link.
The cost for the transfer is equivalent to 1 year of registration (see current pricing) and when the transfer is complete one year will be added to the registration period.
When you order a US Domain transfer Pickaweb will send you an email asking you to confirm the transfer and you will need to click on a link in the email which will take you to an approval page. Here you will be required to enter a code called an AUTH Code or EPP Code – please see point 3 below.
For US domain transfers there are 4 points are to be checked:
1. With US domain names it is important that you are the admin email contact for the domain name because you need to approve the transfer. You can check by doing a whois search on your domain name. If you are not listed, you need to contact your current registrar and ask them to change the Admin email contact to your email address.
2. You must also check with your current Registrar that the domain is unlocked. You can check by doing a whois search on your domain name. If it shows status “OK” or “Active” then that means it is unlocked (domain locking is a standard security feature). If is states “Transfer Prohibited” or “Locked” then you need to contact your registrar and ask them to unlock it.
3. You will also be required to provide an EPP or Authorisation Key which your current Registrar will be able to email across to you. It is a short code that will be required to authorise the transfer (see above).
4. It should be noted that the Registry does not permit transfers of domains that are less than 60 days old.
If you need further assistance at any stage or to track the progress of a transfer please email [email protected] and we will investigate for you.
