How to transfer out a domain

To launch transfer out process of your domains send the following request to our API server.

Please note that only a couple of top-level domains support domain transfer out. You can use to the tld:info request to get further information on a top-level domain. Parse the element tld:transferOutEnabled to find out whether domains under a given top-level domain may be transfer out or not.

In application of ICANN Transfer Policy, the modification you have operated within the last 60 days on your domain name have triggered the application of so-called "transfer lock". Sending domain:transferout requests will lift this lock.
