Transfer from NameKing

Transfer domain names from NameKing to Vservs

Overview

This page takes you step by step through the procedure for transferring a domain away from NameKing 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 NameKing for at least 60 days.
  • The domain name is not in "client update prohibited" status.
 

Transfer Task2: Update contact information for the domain name

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

To update the Registrant and Administrative contacts at NameKing:

  1. Log onto your account at NameKing.com
  2. Click "My Domains".
  3. Click the domain name you want to transfer.
  4. Click the email for the Registrant.
  5. If needed, update the email address.
 

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 NameKing:

  1. Log onto your account at NameKing.com
  2. Click "My Domains".
  3. The authorization code is on the left, beneath the expiration date.

To retag a .uk domain name:

  • Contact NameKing at 888-642-9675 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 NameKing in any order.
  • If you submit the transfer request to Vservs first, you must submit the request to NameKing within a week.
  • If you submit the transfer request to NameKing 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 name

Before you can transfer a domain name away from NameKing, it must be unlocked. Locking is a feature most registrars offer to prevent unauthorized transfers (hijacking) of domain names.

To unlock:

  1. Log onto your account at NameKing.com
  2. Click "My Domains".
  3. Select the check box for each domain name you want to transfer.
  4. Click "Turn off".
 

Transfer Task 5: Transfer the domain name to Vservs

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