Transfer domain name FAQ


What is a domain name transfer?
You may use the domain name transfer process to submit an automatic request for a domain name transfer from another registrar to Unpicked.com. Transferring a domain name to Unpicked.com means that you are choosing Onlinenic.com as the registrar of record for that domain name, allowing you to take advantage of Unpicked.com's pricing for domain name registration and renewal. Once a domain name has been transferred to OnlineNic.com it appears in your Unpicked.com member account and can be manipulated and modified just like any other domain name in the account.
What Does It Cost?
Transferring domain name from another registrar to Unpicked.com extends it's registration by 1 (one) year from it's current expiration date. In the event that we are unable to transfer a name, the transfer price will be credited to your account.
Are there any requirements for making a transfer?
In order to transfer names to Unpicked.com using our automated process:
  1. You must have access to the administrative contact email address on file for the domain name. During the transfer process, you will be required to confirm the transfer request via email. The confirmation message will be sent to the administrative contact email address on file with the current registrar for the domain name; if you do not have access to this email address, please contact your current registrar for information on changing it before initiating a Transfer of Registrar request.
  2. You may NOT transfer a Domain Name if that name was registered or transferred within the past 60 days or if that name, or any information associated with it, is currently in dispute.
  3. .com, .net and .org domain names can only be registered for a term not to exceed 10 years.
What is the procedure for a domain name transfer?
The transfer procedure goes like this:
  1. You submit a transfer request to transfer your domain registered with other registrars to Unpicked.com.
  2. The system will send a confirmation email to your domain's present administrative contact email. Generally this email will be sent within ten minutes after you submit your transfer request. If you do not receive such an email, please inform us at support(at)unpicked.com.
  3. If you reply this email unmodified within 5 calendar days, we will process the transfer; If you indicate in your reply email that you won't approve this transfer or fail to receive reply to our email within five (5) calendar days we will decline to transfer the domain names.
  4. After the transfer request is confirmed we will process the transfer request by contacting the registry which will contact the current registrar about this request.

    Note: the transfer process may take approximately 5 to 10 calendar days after you initiate and confirm the transfer request. We strongly suggest you to initiate your transfer request 2 weeks prior to the domain's expiry date.
Do you refund my money if the transfer is unsuccessful?
Yes.
