Step to Transfer an International Domain

If your domain is international, do not worry, you will not find it too difficult to transfer domain name to another person. We bring you two examples so you can better understand each step. Let us then go to what matters:

  1. Unlock your domain

The location to unlock the domain varies by company. When accessing the company control panel, look for your registered domains. The unlock button can be a padlock or text like “edit settings”.

  1. Obtain the authorization code with the current company

This code can have many names: authorization key, EPP code, auth-info code and so on, so do not be surprised if you find a nomenclature a bit different from the ones we’ve listed here.

Getting this code is simple. The button for asking for this code is usually on the same page where you unlocked your domain, varying the position according to the panel of each company. Getting the code, copy it and leave it somewhere where it can be consulted shortly after.

Copy the code that will appear to you and paste it somewhere easily accessible, so you have it on hand when the time comes.

  1. Request the transfer to the company where you are taking your domain

This last step is similar to the last step of the transfer of national domains. Most companies will provide a form to fill out and will also ask for the authorization key you obtained in the previous step.

Still, the process varies greatly in each company, so we cannot bring these last steps here. However, do not worry; the contracted company will give you all directions for you to complete the transfer. In addition, as we said above, each company usually has a page where explains how to make the transfer within your panel. Regnames provides a domain name services, you can read more at its site.

Authorize the transfer of your domain

The transfer of international domains involves the participation of four entities: you (the domain owner), the company where the domain was originally registered, the company to which you are hosting the domain, and ICANN, which is the body that regulates registration of all domains on the internet.
