How do I unlock my domain for transfer?

There are two ways to remove the Registrar-Lock from a domain name in the Domains page in the Manage section of your account; individually, using the "Unlock" button, and in bulk, using the Bulk Unlock tool.

To remove the Registrar-Lock from a domain name individually:

  1. Go to the Domains page in the Manage area of your account.
  2. Use the search tool to locate the domain name you want to unlock.
  3. Click on the "Unlock" button corresponding to the domain name and a pop-up window will launch.
  4. Note down the randomly generated Authinfo code that appears the text box, or *enter your own code in place of the randomly generated one.
  5. Select the check box named "Unlock domain until...".
  6. Click the "Submit" button to confirm your selection.
  7. The domain name will be released from the default Registrar-Lock for 5 days. For this time it will appear with the status 'Active'.
  8. After this period your domain will return to the default Registrar-Lock status.

OR

To remove the Registrar-Lock for several domain names at once using the "Bulk Unlock" tool:

Please note: the maximum number of domains that you can process with this tool at once is 1,000.

  1. Go to the Domains page in the Manage area of your account.
  2. Click on the "Bulk Unlock" button at the bottom of the page.
  3. Enter the domains you wish to unlock into the text box labeled "Unlock Domains", one domain per line.
  4. Note down the randomly generated Authinfo code that appears the text box, or *enter your own code in place of the randomly generated one.
  5. Click the "Submit" button to confirm your selection.
  6. The domain names will be released from the default Registrar-Lock for 5 days. For this time it will appear with the status Active.
  7. After this period your domain will return to the default Registrar-Lock status.
