When you transfer domain names from others into your account, you can consolidate all of them with just one registrar. This becomes easier to manage and allows you to make the most of all the extra services that may be free of charge. You do not miss out on any time on your domain registration when you transfer your domain name from one registrar to another.
If you buy a domain name from someone and transfer it to your name, you should be sure that they own the domain name. You can find out about it by doing a whois search on the domain name and finding out who is the owner of the domain name.
You should also make sure that the person who is transferring the domain name to you is trustworthy and has control of the domain name. You can find this out by seeing if the person can unlock and prepare the domain name to be transferred for the transfer. If they do not own the domain name and do not have control over it, they will not be able to unlock it.
There are a lot of steps involved in a domain transfer from one owner to another. The best thing to do is to contact both the registrars to make sure that they are aware of the domain transfer
process. A domain name
cannot be transferred in the first 60 days of domain name registration.
Other factors that may come in the way of a domain transfer process are:
1. If the current registrant/owner is involved a 'Uniform Domain-Name Resolution Policy' (UDRP) dispute.
If the current owner fails to be identified as the true owner
3. If the owner hasn't paid their current domain name registrar for the domain to be registered.
4. If the current owner has allowed the domain name registration of the domain name being transferred to expire or lapse.
5. If the domain name is locked by the current owner.
