DOMAIN NAME RULES

Domain Names have a variety of basic rules. Please scroll down to browse the rules for the various domain extensions.

Please note that we only register or transfer domain names that can be registered by anybody around the world. We are unable to help with domain names that have restrictions such as the requirement to have a local business or licence.

Transfers From $6.00!
 

 

Before you attempt to transfer your domain names, you will need to check the following domain settings:
  • Contact your current Domain Registrar and obtain Authorization (EPP) codes for each domain name you want to transfer.
  • Unlock each domain name.
  • Turn off any privacy protection for each domain name.
  • Make sure all contact email addresses are up to date and working.
Please note that you cannot transfer a domain name if any of the following apply:
  • Less than 60 days since the original registration or a previous transfer.
  • The domain name is locked.
  • Contact email addresses are out of date or not working.
  • The domain name is unpaid or under a dispute.
  • Within the 30-day Redemption Grace Period (RGP). After a Registrar deletes a domain name, it is held in RGP for another 30 days to give the Registrant more time to recover a domain name and avoid losing it.
