How to transfer a domain name out of Fabulous

To transfer a domain out of Fabulous please follow the steps below.

Step 1

Ensure domain to be transferred was first registered/last transferred more than 60 days ago, then remove the Registrar Lock (so that it has a WHOIS status of ACTIVE) and note down the Authinfo code.

There are two ways to remove the Registrar-Lock from a domain name in the Manage --> Domains 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 checkbox named "Unlock domain until Day Month Year".
  6. Click the "Change" 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.

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 "Continue" button to confirm your selection.
  6. The domain name will be released from the default Registrar-Lock for 5 days. For this time it will appear with the status Active.
Step 2 Either the owner of the domain name or purchaser supplies the Authinfo code to the gaining Registrar and requests a domain name transfer.
Step 3

The gaining Registrar must obtain approval from the current registered owner prior to submitting a registry transfer request to the Fabulous.com.

Step 4

If approval is obtained the gaining Registrar submits a registry transfer request to the Central Registry, which is passed on to Fabulous.com.

Step 5

We email the current owner giving them the option to explicity approve or decline the transfer within their Fabulous account.

If we receive no response from the owner, after 5 days the Central Registry automatically transfers the domain name to the new Registrar, as a Nil response from the owner is taken as approval.

Step 6

The domain name is transferred to the new Registrar

On a WHOIS look up the domain name will show as registered with the new Registrar, and the Central Registry will issue an email report to confirm the transfer

Step 7 You can now manage your domain(s) through your new Registrar.
