ICANN – Reasons for domain transfer failures

The transfer request of a domain may automatically fail in the following limited circumstances:

  • Evidence of fraud
  • Reasonable dispute over the identity of the person authorizing the transfer
  • Domain name is on hold due to payment owed for a previous registration period (including credit card charge-backs)
  • Express written objection from the domain name holder
  • Domain name is in “Lock” status (Registrars must provide a readily accessible and reasonable means for name holders to remove the lock status. Contact your registrar for assistance.)
  • Domain name is within 60 days of initial registration
  • Domain name is within 60 days of a previous transfer

If you need any assistance in regards to the above article, please don’t hesitate to contact domains@1-grid.com.
