Transfering from 1and1.com

Domain Transfer series

Transfering from 1and1.com

This demo assumes you have a domain name registered through 1and1.com, and starts from their home page

Now let’s learn how to transfer your domain name away from this registrar, and into the domain registry of your choice

Domain name transfers must be initiated at the new registrars website…. that is, the website for the domain registrar where you want your domain name transferred to

However, you must first ensure that your domain name is not locked, or being prevented from being transferred out of this registry….. and that’s what we’re going to do now…..

1) Click Customer Login

2) Enter your 1and1.com User Name and Password in the boxes here

3) Then click Log In

You are now logged in to your 1and1.com account

4) Click Manage Domains

5) Go to Transfers

6) Click Show next to Lock/Unlock Domains

7) Select the domain from the list and click Next

8) Select Unlock and click OK

That’s it! The lock has been removed from the domain name, so it can now be transferred to another domain registry

You must now go to the website of the domain name registrar you wish to transfer to, and initiate a domain transfer request

9) When finished, click the Logout link here

This is the end of the tutorial. You now know how to un-lock domain names, thus enabling you to transfer them away from 1and1.com
