How do I make sure my domain name is ready to transfer to Tiger Technologies?
After you sign up to transfer a domain name to us, you’ll need to approve the transfer. You should check three things to make sure the transfer goes smoothly:
- Some domain name registration companies “lock” domain names to prevent transfers. Make sure your domain name is unlocked.
- For security reasons, an e-mail message with transfer approval instructions will be sent to the “WHOIS” address on file at the old company. Use this page to check the address they have on file and update it at the old company if it’s incorrect. We can’t send the instructions to a different address.
- For most domain names, the instructions will ask the owner to go to a certain page on our Web site and type a “transfer authorization code” (or “authcode”) to approve the transfer. The old company can tell you the code.
In most cases, you can take care of all three of these things from the old domain name company’s “control panel”. If you have any trouble, you should contact the other company — they’ll be able to help you unlock the domain name, update the contact address, or find the transfer authorization code.
We have some specific instructions to help you transfer your domain name from these companies:
