Transfering from Netfirms.ca

Domain Transfer series

Transfering from Netfirms.ca

This demo assumes you have a domain name registered through Netfirms.ca, 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 Control Panel

2) Enter your Netfirms.ca User Name and Password in the boxes here

3) Then click Log In

You are now logged in to your Netfirms.ca account

4) Go to the Domain Manager

5) Expand the options for the domain you wish to edit

6) Go to the Security tab

7) Click Unlock

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

8) 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 Netfirms.ca
