Transfer your Domain

When transferring your domain to Northern Compass our 24/7 customer support is here to help you with the process.  If you’re not an advanced user, with prior experience in domain transfers, we strongly recommend you contact our sales and support staff before beginning this process.  Remember, “Oops”, is not something you want to hear (or say) when managing domain names. 

Your domain is property, and possession is essentially nine-tenths of the law regarding domain ownership.  Securing your domain and having full-time access to support are key essentials to managing your property.  We won’t ‘nickel and dime’ you every time you want to do something with your domain either.  Since your domain is digital real estate, charging a fee to forward your domain just feels like an added property tax that is unnecessary. 

Look at all the cool features you get:

Domain Forwarding and Masking:  Direct any domain name you own to your website — then, anyone who enters that domain name into a browser will be taken to your website.

Domain Locking:  Prevent accidental — or intentional — transfers of domain ownership, and anyone redirecting your nameservers.

Total DNS Control:  Manage your domain nameserver (DNS) records and set your email, FTP, sub-domains, and website location — all from a single control panel.

Change of Registration:  Reassign your domain name (fee required) or change the contacts for your domain.

Status Alerts:  Monitor the status of your domain. We’ll instantly alert you if there’s been a change or we detect suspicious activity.

Complete the following steps with your current registrar:

  1. Unlock the domain name.
  2. Get an Authorization Code (also known as EPP code or transfer key)
  3. Verify administrator’s contact information is correct.
  4. This is important because emails regarding the transfer process will be sent to the administrator’s email address. (Except for .au domains, where all transfer information is sent to the registrant contact’s email.)
  5. Cancel Protected Registration or Private Registration if you have it.
