What is a domain name transfer? Is this an ordinary process of transferring just like those regular transfer processes? These are just two of so many questions that surround the domain name transfer. So you want to know the answer? Then, you read on.
Essentially, a domain name transfer is made possible when the current domain name holder or registrant wishes to make some adjustments on the domain name companies that provide the domain name services. So, a domain name transfer is a process that can only be made possible with the effort of the domain name registrant of with the administrative contact who is listed on the recent domain name registration record.
A domain name transfer can in fact refer to two detach and unique domain name transactions. One of those is a registrant domain name transfer, and the other one is the registrar domain name transfer.
In terms of the registrant domain name transfer, it is considered that this kind of domain name transfer takes place when the current registrant of a domain name wanted to transfer all the domain name rights to a third party. It is only the domain name registrant or the administrative contact who are allowed to perform the registrant domain name transfer process.
For conducting the registrant domain name transfer, most of the registrars only require a user name and password for the process. Besides, it is found out that there are also some registrar companies who require a notarized form or other formal recognition documents, but these are just depending on the certain county that the registrants resides in. It is commonly noted that they require such documents for the domain name transfer process to prove that the registrant is the actual domain name holder. So in all instances, the holder contacts their current registrar companies and then requests for the domain name transfer to the new third party.
In the place of the second transaction which is the registrar domain name transfer, it is noted that this takes place when the current domain name registrant wishes to switch domain name registrar companies. Along with that, the registrant may wish to adjust companies for the reason that they are unsatisfied with the level of customer service that the companies provide or for any other reason.
And in conducting the registrar domain name transfer, a registrant or the administrative contact should then perform the request through the new registrar company. After which, a holder or the administrative contact must reply to the old registrar companies via e-mail which asks for authentication of the registrar domain name transfer. So upon the completion of the registrar domain name transfer, the holder can log in to the new account at the new registrar web site
