Transfer Process Frequently Asked Questions
Most people who use Web hosting services are familiar with the concept of registering a domain name and the fact that you have to renew your domain name to retain control over it. But transferring domain names is another story.
Questions abound: How do you transfer a domain name? What are the benefits of transferring? What's a Transfer Lock? If you've ever thought about one of these questions, well, have no fear. Just kick back, take a sip of your favorite beverage, and let us give you the lowdown on domain name transferring.
Q: What does transferring a domain name mean?
A: Transferring a domain name means you are moving a domain name from one domain name registrar to another one.
Q: What are the benefits of transferring a domain name to a domain name registrar such as pairNIC?
A: There can be many benefits to moving your domain name to a domain name registrar such as pairNIC.
First, when you transfer a domain name, you will gain another registration year or more. For example, if your domain name registration expires on June 1, 2007, and you transferred your domain name to pairNIC for one year, your expiration date would then be June 1, 2008. You can transfer a domain name for a longer period of time as well.
If you are currently a pair Networks customer, transferring your domain name will allow you to consolidate your Web hosting and domain name registration services under one company.
Plus, at pairNIC, we include additional services with your domain name at no extra charge such as:

Q: Can I transfer a domain name at any time?
A: Unfortunately, you have to wait at least 61 days from the day you registered your domain name before you can transfer it. Also, if a domain name has already expired, or will expire within the next seven days, there may be problems with the transfer. If you are planning to transfer your domain name to pairNIC and find yourself in this situation, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org before requesting the transfer.
Q: How long does a domain name transfer take?
A: A transfer generally takes seven to thirteen days total. First, the current Registrant (owner) will need to approve the transfer. The approval process takes one to seven days.
After the owner approves the transfer, transfers are generally completed within six days. So, the maximum amount of time it should take is thirteen days.
Q: What's a Transfer Lock?
A: A Transfer Lock is something many domain name registrars have placed on domain names to ensure your domain name is not transferred away without your permission. To see if your domain name has a Transfer Lock, you can contact your current registrar, or go to http://whois.pairnic.com and enter your domain name in the text field.
The WHOIS application will display information letting you know if your domain name has some sort of transfer lock or transfer prohibition on it. If it does, you'll have to get your current registrar to remove it before transferring your domain name to another registrar such as pairNIC.
Q: What's a Transfer Authorization Code?
A: A Transfer Authorization Code is a six to 16 character code assigned to certain domain names as an added security measure to ensure that only the Registrant (Owner) of the domain name can transfer the domain name to another registrar. You can think of the Transfer Authorization Code as another password for the domain name.
A Transfer Authorization Code is needed to transfer all domain names. The Transfer Authorization Code is also known as an "Auth Code," "Auth-info Code," or "Authorization Code."
Your domain name registrar should be able to provide you with your Transfer Authorization Code.
Q: How do I transfer my domain name to pairNIC?
A: We thought you'd never ask! It's really simple.
Just go to pairnic.com. Make sure you took off the Transfer Lock/Transfer Prohibition at your current registrar and obtain your Transfer Authorization Code (also known as an Authinfo code). Simply follow the transfer instructions, and you'll be on your way to having a domain name at pairNIC.
