How do you do a change of registrar?

Updated 9 Apr, 2020

A registrant must be able to change registrars (known as a registrar transfer) at anytime. The following is a detailed description of this procedure:

• The registrant turns to the current registrar to obtain a password (authorizationcode). The current registrar verifies that it is the registrant that is requesting theauthorization code and then generates the code, which is given to the registrant

• The registrant turns to the new registrar and submits the authorization code according to the new registrar’s routines

• The new registrar initiates the change of registrar with Registry Services, via  EPP protocol (transfer request)

• The transfer is completed and Registry Services confirms the completion to both the new and former registrar

• The new registrar confirms the change to the registrant
