Transferring Domain - How Quick?

Recommended Posts

Hi -


My site is hosted at TCH. I'd like to transfer the domain to TCH before I get charged a HUGE amount by another (large web firm) that manages my domain :)


Question: How quick can I do a domain transfer? days? hours?


Also, I see in the TCH domain transfer FAQ that I need to do these tasks first:


* To unlock your domain

* An authorization code for .com, .net, .org, .biz, .us, .tv, or .info domains

* A valid domain administrative contact


What the heck is all that?


Thanks in advance

Depending on where your domain is currently hosted you may need to log into your domain administration panel and unlock the domain so it can be transferred. Not sure about the authorization code. A valid administrative contact would be you if you are the administrator of the domain now. Otherwise who ever is the administrator will have to validate the transfer.


How long will it take? Up to 3 days (72 hours).

OK, thanks. I'm having a problem getting into the domain control panel as it is. Says that my domain account has been suspended... :)


What is involved in "validating the transfer"???


Oops, you changed your answer from 24 hrs to 72!!! I wouldn't make it before I got charged the renewal if it took 3 days. I have a feeling I am going to get charged regardless, after reading up on the web about folks in similar situations.

The 72 hours is the time propagation could take. Usually it will all happen within hours.


Validating the transfer is an email to the administrator to inform them the transfer was requested. They must acknowledge that email or the transfer will fail.
