A transfer into Network Solutions means that you are transferring your registration from your current registrar to Network Solutions. A transfer to another Network Solutions account means that you are transferring your domain from one Network Solutions account into another Network Solutions account.

You will need to prepare your domain name for transfer at the registrar where you currently manage the domain name. Then you will need to complete a few steps at Network Solutions.

Typically, domain transfers can take between 5 to 7 days to complete. Depending on where you currently manage your domain name, some registrars can release the domain early after the transfer has been initiated.

Select the step you need for instructions:

Prepare at Your Current Registrar

Before you begin the transfer process, make sure you have prepared your domain name. With a few exceptions, the following steps are the same for most domain names:

1. Make sure your domain was registered or transferred more than 60 days ago.

Important: ICANN, the regulatory body that governs domain names, requires domain name providers to prevent domain transfers in certain circumstances. Specifically, a transfer is not allowed until 60 days after the following events have occurred:

  • Domain is registered
  • Registrant contact information has changed
  • Domain is successfully transferred

These restrictions apply to both transfer ins to us and transfer outs to another domain provider. Please click here for more information on ICANN's policy when transferring registrations between registrars.


2. Remove any locks or security settings at the current registrar.
3. Request an authorization code from your current registrar.
4. Change your domain privacy settings to public.

Transfers Completed

Once a transfer request has been initiated, Network Solutions will send an e-mail to the current Account Holder or Primary Contact of the domain name, asking the individual to authorize the transfer request. 

The Account Holder/Primary Contact has 14 days to authorize the transfer request. Once a transfer request has been authorized, the domain transfer will complete and the person gaining the domain name will be notified within 48 hours.

Check Transfer Status

In the Account Manager on the Transfer Status page, you can easily check the status of domain transfers. The status icon indicates when action is required and whether there are any issues with your transfer.
