How to transfer Domain Name Ownership to a new owner?

Every domain name includes a Registrant Contact. This is the legal owner of the domain name. The Registrant Contact is assigned when the domain is registered and can be changed by completing a transfer of ownership form.

If you would like to transfer, update or change the owner of your domain to another party please fill out the Domain Transfer of Ownership form and return it to us via email, fax or regular post. Listed fees must be cleared before we can process the change. Once your application is approved you will receive confirmation by email. The processing time is up to 5 days.
