Why transfer?

You’re probably here because your current domain provider isn’t giving you the service you need, you just want to consolidate your properties or it’s just time for a change. Our goal is to make this process as straightforward for you as possible.

Advantages when you transfer.

It's automatic.

Our transfer process is automated, fast and risk-free. And that means that moving your domain to us happens mostly in the background, leaving you with more time to work on your next big thing.

Auctions on demand.

Ever wonder what happens to expired domains? They go up for auction, which means you get a chance to grab a great, previously-owned name. Visit our Domain Auctions site to find out more.

Backorder your dream domain.

If someone else has already registered your ideal domain, there's still a chance you can get it in the future. Sign up to backorder the domain you want, and soon you could have it in your possession. How's that for a second chance?

Frequently Asked Questions

At Ozzie Domains, Domain transfers are charged per name at a flat fee, so you pay nothing beyond this initial cost and ICANN registration, where appropriate. We also let you keep any time left on your current registrations — and throw in a free year of registration for each transfer*. Depending on how many domains you’re moving, this could add up to significant savings.

Domains can be transferred almost any time. However, ICANN prohibits domain transfers within 60 days of registration or prior transfer (.au excepted).

  1. Unlock each of the domain names you’d like to transfer. Contact your current registrar for details on how to do this.

  2. You may need an authorisation code (sometimes called a transfer key or EPP code) from your current registrar. This isn’t necessary in all cases, such as when transferring country-code Top-level Domain Names (ccTLDs). If the authorisation codes aren’t shown in your account manager, ask your current registrar to email them to you.

  3. Buy Ozzie Domains domain transfers for up to 500 of your domain names at once, listing each one on a separate line in our bulk domain transfer tool. If the extension you’d like to transfer isn’t listed, you can’t transfer that domain name to us.

NOTE: If you select this option and are not using Off-site DNS or a Premium DNS transfer template, we park the domain name on our parking nameservers and create a default zone file in your account with us. You can use the Zone File Editor in the DNS Manager to customise the new zone file. For more information, see Managing DNS for Your Domain Names.

Please note there are special instructions for transferring .uk, .ca, .eu, .es, .se and .au domain names to Ozzie Domains.

Most domain transfers take between five and seven days to complete. The time it takes varies depending on the extension.

Absolutely. Track the progress of your transfers by following these steps:

  1. Log in to My Account on Ozzie Domains.

  2. Next to Domains, click the Launch button.

  3. In the upper left, pull down the Domains menu and click Pending Transfers. You should see the following info for each transfer domain name:

    Status — This tells you where in the transfer process you are. Hover over the progress bar for any transfer, click the ? icon, or click the Action Required or Error link that displays for details.

    Admin Email — This field shows the email address linked with that domain name.

Upon the expiration of your domain, you will be charged annually to maintain the domain. The price is the then-current annual retail price applicable to the domain.
