We decided to make transferring
a domain name to another
person easier for you by allowing you to conduct
yourself without any intervention from us. Since
you are using us
as your Domain Registration provider, your task of transferring
a domain name to
another registrant will be a lot simpler.
More details below!
1. While Network Solutions and other domain name
both parties involved to fax a whole bunch of
long documents to
them before processing the request, we
do not require any
of that. We give you the freedom
to conduct the
transfer yourself, and at your own discretion.
2. While other domain registration
companies will charge you
every time a domain
name changes owners, we will not
charge you, or the
person you are transferring the
domain to anything.
Transferring ownership is free here,
plus the person
that you are transferring the domain name
to will get to keep
all your remaining time. This is useful
if you want to
transfer your domain name to a relative
or family member.
3. To change your domain's ownership
login to Domain
Manager, and change the "admin contact"
and other contact
information to reflect the name and address
of the new owner. Make
sure that the new owner's admin email
correct, since this is the only way anyone can receive
Then give the new owner of the domain name
your UserName and
Password for that domain name.

of domain names,
please separate your domain name
from your other
"domain profiles" in the group, and give
account a separate login and password before
sending the owner
that username and password.
So How do I move a domain from my main
profile to its own?
Click on "Manage
Profile" and select "Change Ownership

and click on "Change
Owner". The domain is now in its own profile,
with a separate username
and password. If you are transferring
ownership of this domain
name, simply send the new username
and password to the new
owner. That is it! Then request
that the new owner change
the username and password for

transfer is between you and the new owner,
you should document it, just incase of any future disputes.
2. Draft a simple
contract specifying the details of the exchange,
and have a witness sign it.
3. Make sure you receive
your money before giving out your
username and password and releasing your domain name
to a new owner.
4. Make sure that domain
name is part of a "separate"
domain profile when you give the new owner the
login and password info. So separate that domains
profile from all the rest of the domains you own
before giving out the key.
4. For added safety,
you should make sure that the
new owner's admin email is accessible by him
incase he needs to retrieve his lost passwords.
5. After funds have
been verified. Ask the new owner to
change his username and password after the transfer
for security reasons.
