Is Your Domain Eligible for Transfer?
Take a look at the requirements for transferring different types of TLD:
This includes, .com, .net, .org etc. And some new gTLDs, such as .bid, .club, .trade, and .tech. Plus other ccTLDs like .tv, .me, and .co etc.
- The domain must have been registered or transferred at least 60 days ago
- The domain must be unlocked at the current registrar
These are the .uk, .co.uk, .org.uk, and .me.uk TLDs.
- They can be transferred within 60 days after registration or a previous transfer
- They do NOT support Transfer Lock
- They do NOT support Auth/EPP code
To transfer your .UK domain to Namecheap, you need to change its IPS tag to NAMECHEAP-INC at your current registrar. You may do this through your account with them, or by contacting their support. Then initiate the transfer at Namecheap.
These transfers are free of charge and do not include domain renewal.
The below TLDs simply cannot be transferred through our website at this time, and will need to be transferred manually. Fear not. Our Concierge Team is here to help you through the process.
.com.au, .net.au, .org.au, .es, .com.es, .org.es, .nom.es, .de, .ch, .li, .work, .casa, .moe, .wedding, .fit, .best, .beer, .earth, .yoga, .tokyo, .surf, .fashion, .gift, .horse, .build, .uno, .buzz, .wales, .garden, .ceo, .cymru, .rodeo, .cooking, .country, .vodka, .fishing, .okinawa, .nagoya, .ryukyu
No Domain Downtime
If you are using a registrar’s default nameservers and want to avoid downtime during transfer, we advise taking the following steps:
- Set your domain to use our FreeDNS
- Once your domain starts using our FreeDNS, start the transfer
- After the transfer, the FreeDNS will automatically switch to our default nameservers

Frequently Asked Questions
If we are talking about generic TLDs (such as .com, .info, .agency, etc.), the remaining time that you have with your current registrar will not be lost, it gets carried over. Plus, your domain will be renewed for one year as part of the transfer.
If you renew your domain name after the domain has expired, you will need to wait 45 days after the expiration date before you can transfer. Otherwise, you may lose the renewal year that you paid for with the previous registrar.
When it comes to country-code extensions (.de, .uk, .es, etc.), each Registry may set its own rules. Find out if your domain is eligible for transfer now.
People transfer domains for different reasons. If cost is of a concern, they may transfer a domain to a cheaper registrar to take advantage of a low price or the best deals. Sometimes they may just prefer the services another company has on offer.
Yes, you can. To do this, unlock the domain with your current Registrar and get the Auth/EPP code from them. Once you have the code, submit the transfer . Please contact our Support Team if you require further assistance.
When you transfer your domain, the remaining time you had left with your old registrar is automatically included. The one year you have registered for, is added on top. Extra renewals can be added on after you have transferred.
The exception is UK group TLDs – they are not renewed during transfer and are free to transfer.
