Like the actual transfer process, the amount of time it takes to transfer your domain name to our nameservers depends on the registrar you used to register the domain and the process they use for transfers. Here is some general information to give you an idea of how long it will take:
Domains registered using Network Solutions Inc.
If you registered your domain using Network Solutions, the transfer must be approved using their "Mail-From" authorization method. A short while after you submit your transfer form, we send a transfer request to Network Solutions. They in turn send an email to the address listed for the Administrative Contact of your domain. This email is referred to as a "Domain Modification Agreement". To approve the transfer you need to copy and paste the entire body of the agreement into a blank email, and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once they receive the agreement from you, it usually takes them 48-72 hours to process it and complete the transfer.
Domains registered using ICDomains
If you registered your domain using our services, no transfer is required.
Domains registered using Register.com
If you registered your domain using Register.com, please include the user name and password you chose to use for adminitration of the domain when you registered it in the appropriate section of the transfer form. We then use this information to make the necessary changes required for the transfer. After we do this, register.com sends an email to the address listed for Administrative Contact of the domain asking them to approve the transfer. Once you have approved the changes, it usually takes register.com 24-48 hours to process the changes and let them take effect.
Domains registered using Dotster.com
Domains registered using companies not listed above
If you registered your domain using Dotster.com, simply include your Account Name and your Account Password in the appropriate section of the transfer form. We will let you know if we need anything else. Once you submit the form, it should take roughly 48-72 hours for Dotster to update their database.
There are many other organizations that provide registration and administration services besides the ones listed above. However, the registrars that we have provided information about are the ones that we find our customers use most frequently. If you registered your domain using another company here is what you should do to get it transferred:
- If you know that the company you used for registration allows you to manage your domain through the use of a user name and password, please include the user name and password in the appropriate section of the transfer form. We will contact you for further information if we need it.
- If you do not know whether or not the company you used to register your domain allows you to manage to it through the use of a user name and password, contact the support department of that company and request that they remove the nameservers currently associated with your domain and add these nameservers:
Primary Nameserver: NS1.INTERNETCONNECTION.NET
IP Address: 188.8.131.52
Secondary Nameserver: NS2.INTERNETCONNECTION.NET
IP Address: 184.108.40.206
