How to schedule a bulk transfer

Sometimes a large batch of domains needs to move from one registrar account to another.

We refer to this as a bulk internal transfer and this operation is scheduled and executed by the CentralNic customer success team. 

What do we need to schedule this?

  • A definitive list of domains
  • Registrar handle of the losing registrar
  • Registrar handle of the gaining registrar
  • Target date and time for the transfer (please allow ample lead time)

What is the procedure to schedule this?

  1. Open a ticket with the Customer success team including the required information
  2. CentralNic will request written confirmation from both the losing and gaining registrar in order to comply with ICANN's confirmed transfer policy
  3. Once both registrars agree to the transfer, list of domains, and date and time, we will schedule the transfer
  4. The transfer will be executed at the agreed date and time
  5. Confirmation will be sent to the Registry Operator and the involved registrars.

How will this affect billing?

  • Open billing items with the losing registrar will stay with the losing registrar
  • New billing items will belong to the gaining registrar
  • No renewal will be forced on transfer

What will happen to the contacts?

As part of the transfer, we will clone the contact details on the to-be-transferred domains so that the gaining registrar has ownership and control over the contact details on the domains.
