How can I speed up my domain name transfer?

Related Topics: , ,

All transfers that are approved by the “gaining Registrar” (the new Registrar who submitted the transfer for the domain) will auto-approve (“AUTO-ACK”) itself after 5 days for most types of domain names.

In some cases the “losing Registrar” (the Registrar the domain is transferring-away from)  will send an email to the Administrative Contact for the domain name allowing them to approve the transfer-away.  Once the confirmation with the “losing Registrar” is approved, the domain name will have officially transferred to the new “gaining Registrar” who started the transfer.

Due to delays involved in processing completed domain name transfers, the final approval may not be recognized by the “gaining Registrar” until 24 hours have passed.
