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

Please review the following table to learn more about the different statuses you might see in the account manager and how they relate to the domain transfer process:

Domain Status Description
In Progress Our system is checking to make sure your domain name is eligible for transfer. No action is neededwe will email you when it’s time to provide your authorization code.
Action Required You need to resolve an issue(s) with your domain name before the transfer can continue. For example, the domain name may be locked or inactive.
Pending Auth Code To authorize the transfer, enter a valid authorization code.
Pending Authorization Network Solutions has sent an authorization email to the email address associated with the domain name. You need to respond to this email in order for the transfer to continue.
Invalid Auth Code When we submit your transfer request to the registry, the registry checks whether the authorization code is valid. The Invalid Auth Code status allows you to submit a new authorization code.
Unauthorized Network Solutions is required to send an authorization email to the current owner of the domain name to confirm that the transfer is authorized. We did not receive a reply within 60 days, therefore the transfer is cancelled, but can be restarted. The authorization email can also be resent.
Rejected The transfer could be rejected for a variety of reasons. You may have failed to respond to the transfer authorization email from your current provider. Or there may be an issue with the status of your domain name in the current registrar's system. If you would like to continue the transfer, contact your current domain name provider and then click the Restart button.
Transfer Failed The transfer attempt failed. The attempt either expired because it was not completed within 90 days, was cancelled by request, or was cancelled because it was related to a fraudulent transaction or chargeback.
Complete The transfer completed successfully. The domain name is now in your Network Solutions account and ready for use.
