Unlock domain name
Before you can start the transfer process you first need to unlock the domain with your current provider and ensure the domain’s admin email address is correct as an email will be sent to this address to confirm the transfer.
Start the transfer

The domain admin contact will then receive an email from OpenSRS with instructions on how to authorise the transfer. Your current provider may also send you an email with details of how to move it away from them, please read this careful and contact us if you need any advice.
Once the email from OpenSRS has been confirmed the domain will usually be transferred within 24 hours, however it can sometimes take up to 7 days.
