Domain Transfer Out of Reclaim

This article will walk through getting a domain ready to transfer away from Domain of One’s Own.

To start off, find the client in WHMCS. This will tell us if the domain meets the requirements for transfer.

One thing to note: the domain must be at least 60 Days old before it is eligible for transfer. That is one of the first things you should check for when looking at the requirements because if the domain is not old enough then the other preparations are useless.

Once you’ve determined that the domain is old enough to transfer, the next step is to turn off ID Protect, and the registrar lock for the domain. These are two key components to a domain transfer. Within WHMCS you’ll need to uncheck the boxes for the registrar lock and ID Protect. Then click save changes at the bottom of the page.

Once those are unchecked, you’ll be able to request an EPP code to start the transfer process. Click the ‘Request EPP Code’ module command. This generates an email with the code, which looks something like this:

The new registrar will use that EPP code to initiate the transfer.
