What Problems Could Delay Or Prevent The Transfer Of A Domain?

If the e-mail address of the current administrative contact for the domain is invalid, registrant won't receive the confirmation e-mail and won't be able to confirm the transfer. Also, some domains require an EPP, or other authorization information, before a domain can be successfully transferred. Failing to provide this information, or providing incorrect information, will prevent the transfer of your domain.

The losing registrar can also deny a transfer for several reasons:

  • Evidence of fraud
  • Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy Action
  • Court order by court of competent jurisdiction
  • Reasonable dispute over the identity of the Registrant or Administrative Contact
  • No payment for previous registration period (including credit card charge-backs) if the domain name is past its expiration date or for previous or current registration periods if the domain name has not yet expired.
  • Express written objection to the transfer from the Transfer contact.
  • A domain name was already in 'Lock' status.
  • A domain name is in the first 60 days of an initial registration period.
  • A domain name is within 60 days after being transferred.
  • Email, SSL
