Transferring Away from 1&1, Schlund + Partner, or

Before you can transfer your domain name registered with 1&1, Schlund + Partner, or to us, you need to prepare your domain name so it will successfully complete the transfer process.

If your domain name is not registered with 1&1, Schlund + Partner, or, visit Transferring Your Domain From Another Registrar for instructions for other registrars.

To Transfer Away From 1&1, Schlund + Partner, or

Use the instructions below to transfer your domain name to us:

1. Verify that Your Domain Name is Transferable

To make sure your domain name can be transferred, confirm that:

  • The domain name has been registered for at least 60 days, and has been at 1&1, Schlund + Partner, or for at least 60 days.
  • The domain name contact information hasn't been changed within 60 days.

Note: Some registrars prevent domain names from transferring away if the contact information associated with a domain was updated within 60 days.

2. Confirm Administrative Contact Information

The administrative contact (admin) is one of the four contacts listed in the Whois database for a registered domain. The contact information is defined by the registrant. As part of the domain transfer process, we will send a transfer-approval email message to the domain's administrative contact listed in the Whois database. The email message contains the Transaction ID and Security Code that enable the administrative contact to approve the transfer.

Note: If your domain name has private registration, a service that hides your personal information from the public, you cannot verify your admin email address in the Whois database. You must contact your current registrar to cancel the private registration, and then you can update the email address, if necessary.

To update this contact at 1&1, Schlund + Partner, or
