Transfer from Dotster

Transfer domain names from Dotster to Vservs

Overview

This page takes you step by step through the procedure for transferring a domain away from Dotster and into an account at Vservs.

The transfer process involves the tasks that are described below. Following the transfer tasks, we provide information about tracking the progress of the transfer, and ICANN rules regarding rejections.

 

Transfer Task 1: Verify that the domain name is eligible for transfer

To make sure your domain name can be transferred, check the following:

  • The domain name has been registered for at least 60 days, and has been at Dotster for at least 60 days.
  • The domain name is not in "client update prohibited" status.
 

Transfer Task 2: Confirm contact information

Before you can transfer a domain, the Registrant and Administrative contact information must be up-to-date at Dotster, because it is these contacts who receive the transfer request and okay the transfer.

To update these contacts at Dotster:

  1. Log on to your account at Dotster.com.
  2. click the "My Domains" tab.
  3. Select the check boxes of the domain you want authorization codes for, or click "Select All".
  4. Open the "Step 2" menu and click "Change Contact Information".
  5. Click "Registrant" or "Administrative". The Registrant and Administrative contacts, especially the email addresses, must be correct to approve transfers.
  6. If you want to apply the same changes to the other contact types, select the check boxes next to the contacts.
  7. Click "Update".
  8. To finalize the change, click "Yes".
 

Transfer Task 3: Obtain the authorization code or retag the domain name

Some TLDs require that you provide an authorization code for your domain name, to provide an extra level of assurance that the transfer request comes from an authorized source.

To transfer a .com, .net, .org, .info, .biz, .us, .name, .cn, .tw, .cc, or .in domain name, obtain the authorization code from Dotster

  1. Log on to your account at Dotster.com.
  2. Click the "My Domains" tab.
  3. Select the check box next to the domain name you want to transfer.
  4. Open the "Step 2" menu and click "Retrieve Authorization Code".
  5. Click "Go". Dotster's system sends an email containing the authorization code to the domain registrant.

To retag a .uk domain name:

  • Contact Dotster and ask them to retag the domain name to ISP tag Vservs.
  • Alternatively, you can retag/detag directly through Nominet, for a fee.
  • When you transfer a .uk domain name, use the Auto verification transfer method.
  • You can submit the transfer requests to Vservs and Dotster in any order.
  • If you submit the transfer request to Vservs first, you must submit the request to Dotster within a week.
  • If you submit the transfer request to Dotster first, you must submit the request to Vservs by the next 8th day of the calendar month.

Transfers of TLDs other than those named above do not require any codes or tags.

 

Transfer Task 4: Unlock the domain

Before you can transfer a domain away from Dotster, the domain must be unlocked. Locking is a feature most registrars offer to prevent unauthorized transfers (hijacking) of domains.

To unlock:

  1. Log on to your account at Dotster.com.
  2. Click the "My Domains" tab.
  3. Select the check box next to the domain name you want to transfer.
  4. Open the "Step 2" menu and click "Unlock these domains".
 

Transfer Task 5: Transfer the domain name to Vservs

Once you have prepared the domain name at Dotster, you're ready to transfer to Vservs.
