Question from the CASDNS database of Frequently Asked Questions on Domain Name Registration. These pages are designed to assist our customers in the domain registration process.

"When could there be a problem with a transfer of a domain name from another registrar to CASDNS?"

Sometimes the status of a domain does not allow for transfer:

  • A domain name cannot be transferred until at least 60 days has passed since it was first registered or last transferred between registrars. 

  • Sometimes a domain name is frozen, locked or on hold by a registrar for nonpayment of fees. 

  • The domain name may have expired and is no longer eligible for transfer.  And some registrars will not immediately release the name to the general pool.  Though we are occasionally able to effect a transfer for an expired domain, a domain holder who wishes to change registrars should make every attempt to do so before the name expires.

  • The name may be on hold because it is involved in some type of dispute. 

  • The domain name was misspelled and does not exist in the registry, or there is a question that you requested the transfer in error.

Other problems in transferring registrars may be because:

  • We could not verify that the transfer request came from an authorized administrator of the domain name.

  • The owner or administrator of the domain was emailed for approval of the transfer, and disapproved.

Registrar transfers are never done automatically.  Each and every request is reviewed by our CASDNS staff.  If we see a problem we think we can correct, we will work with you to try to solve the problem.
