Shortly after, you get the results of this check:

  • In column (1) you see the name of the requested domain.
  • In column (2) you see the price per month if the transfer is liable to costs.
  • In column (3) you get the information if the domain is available for transfer or not (status).

If column (3) shows the notification "Domain transfer not available", there may be several possible reasons.

Possible causes:

  • An active transfer lock is set and the domain is not available for transfer.
  • The domain is in the 60-day retention period after the registration (depending on the TLD).

By clicking on the button Add to cart (4), you can add the respective domain into your shopping cart.

Via check box (5) you can select multiple domains and add them to the shopping cart by clicking on the button Add selected items to the basket (6).

By clicking on the button Your shopping cart (7), you can go into your shopping cart.

More information is requested in the shopping cart if necessary for registration.

  • In this case a notice will be displayed in the column Status (1) und you will get more details about missing information in the notification box highlighted in red (2).
  • If possible, we provide you directly with the respective boxes to enter the missing information (3).
  • At step (4) you see the annual fee for the domain (net price) if the transfer is liable to costs. This is usually the case if the registration period is extended in the course of the domain transfer.
  • Finally, please agree to our Terms and Conditions (5) and click on Buy now (6) in order to initiate the transfer.
