Important: This article applies to Network Solutions® customers only.
A Form of Authorization (FOA) email is sent to you from your current registrar and also from Network Solutions. You must respond to both emails to authorize the domain transfer. These emails help prevent someone from initiating a transfer without your permission and hijacking your domain name.
The email that Network Solutions sends out will have this subject line: Transfer of <domain>-Action Required
The emails are sent to the administrative email address associated with your domain name. If you are not sure whether you have access to this email address, please contact your current domain provider. If necessary, ask them to update your email address and waive the 60-day Change of Registrant lock.
Although ICANN allows providers to waive the 60-day lock, this is not required. If your provider does not agree to waiving the lock, then please fill out the form on this page and we will process your transfer request manually.
