|Important: If you wish to move your domain from one Rebel account to another Rebel account you will need to do a Domain Move.|
An authorization code (or EPP) is a unique key assigned by the registrar to a domain. It is used to verify domain name transfers between registrars. Essentially it is the "password" for a domain name and aids in the identification of the domain owner so proper authority can be established during the transfer process.
To transfer your domain out of your Rebel account and into your account at a different registrar you must first obtain your domain's unique authorization code and unlock your domain. At Rebel, when you request your authorization code, your domain will also be unlocked for 10 days. To get this code please follow these simple steps:
Login to your Rebel account and click on the Domain Manager.
Click directly on your domain name to access the domain editing page.
On the domain editing page, scroll down to the Transfer Domain section and click on the link that reads Send Transfer Authorization Code To Admin Contact.
|Note: The authorization code will be sent to your domain's administrative email address. If you are unsure of which email is currently listed as your admin contact please scroll up to Domain Contacts. If you need to change your administrative email address please reference our article: How do I edit my domain contacts?|
Requesting your authorization code will automatically unlock your domain for a duration of 10 days. After 10 days the code will expire and the domain lock will be replaced.
Problem: The link will not click!
If you have Ownership Protection enabled, you must remove it from your domain to make it transferable. Here is our article explaining the removal process: How do I disable Ownership Protection?
Problem: I started my transfer four days ago and it still hasn't transferred
Most types of domain names can take up to five days to transfer. If it has been longer please let us know.
