How can I transfer in my domain name(s) to PanaNames from another registrar?
Please follow the steps below:
1. Your domain name(s) shouldn’t be registered or previously transferred in the last 60 days.
2. Ensure that the registrant contact for your domain name has a valid email address in the Whois Database (https://who.is/). Both registrars use this email address to send you important information about the transfer.
Note: If your domain name(s) have a private registration (i.e. Whois Privacy), a service that hides your personal information from the public, please contact your current registrar and inquire if their Privacy service supports email-forward to your email address. If don’t, please disable the Whois Privacy.
3. Unlock your domain name(s) at your current registrar.
4. Obtain Authorization code (other names of it are: AUTHINFO or AUTH) from your current registrar for your domain name(s).
Note: It can be done either in your account or by contacting the Current Registrar.
In your account at Pananames.com:
1. In the section "Transfers", choose "Transfer in" or go directly to https://domains.pananames.com/domain-transfer:
2. In the field enter your domain name(s), put a space and add the authorization code for each domain name.
3. Put a tick for “Enable whois privacy after transfer is done” if you want to have enabled whois privacy on the completion of transfer.
Note: Whois Privacy for our registrar is free.
4. After pressing on "Begin Transfer", you will be redirected to the cart to pay for services. Please see How can I pay for my domain names and other associated services?
5. After the successful payment, you will be able to monitor domain(s) transfer in the section "Transfers", "Transfer progress" or go directly to https://domains.pananames.com/domain-transfer/monitor.
Note: your domain(s) NameServers will stay as it is together with all Host Records.
