Transferring a domain name

How do I transfer my domain name to another registrar or host?

Open the "Domain Names" page, select on the domain name of your choice then click on the "Transfer" tab. Click on the "Receive transfer code" button. You should receive your code by email in a few minutes. Then go to the registrar / host on which you want to transfer the domain name. Order or request the transfer of your domain name. When asked, enter the Authcode / AuthInfo / AuthInfo / Authentication Code you received.

When can I transfer a domain name I purchased on Youdot?

Once your first payment call has been confirmed (a payment call is made each month to pay for your purchases and registrations), you can request a transfer immediately after the domain name has been assigned to you.

Domain names with .com, .org and .info TLDs, however, are required by ICANN to have a 60-day delay after registration before you can request a transfer.

For .be domain names, please send us a request by email to receive your code.
For domain names, please send us the TAG of your new registrar.
For .es domain names, you must initiate the request with your new registrar first before we can validate the transfer.

If this is not your first purchase, your account is unlocked and you can transfer without delay if necessary.

How long does it take to transfer a domain name?
Depending on the extension (TLD) of your domain name, the transfer time can range from a few minutes to a maximum of 1 week. We accept all requests automatically within 7 days.
How much does it cost to transfer a domain name?
The transfer is free on our side, but you will be charged by the provider you have chosen. The price is often that of a one-year registration.
How do I know if my transfer is complete?
For any transfer operation started or completed, we will send you an email notification. You can also consult the WHOIS of a domain name at any time and see the name of the registrar that currently manages it.
Can I transfer a domain name from my old registrar to Youdot?
We do not offer this type of service to date but do not hesitate to contact us if you wish to do so for a portfolio of at least 1,000 domain names.
How to change the ownership of a domain name?
With regard to the change of ownership, some registrars (and for certain TLDs such as .fr, .com, or others) may impose an additional procedure on the user when transferring the domain name.

Nevertheless, this request for change of ownership always has to be made to your new registrar. In some cases (OVH, for example) this change requires a double confirmation by email, from us and from you. Please notify us via when you make this type of request.
