Transfer a .EU Domain

You can transfer a .eu domain name to us. However, the transfer process is unique to the European Registry of Internet Domain Names (EURid).

Due to registry limitations, we cannot add a free year of registration to .eu domain names that you transfer to us.

When you purchase a .eu domain name transfer from us, we notify EURid of your request, and we will send transfer IDs to the email address on file in your account with us. We will also send the authorization code to the registrant contact's email address as it displays in the Whois database. (If you need to update your registrant contact's email address, contact your current registrar.)

You must authorize the transfer in your account with us within 40 days or your request expires. The sooner you authorize your transfer, the sooner it completes.

To authorize the transfer, you must enter the transfer IDs (transaction ID and security code) and the authorization code in the Domain Manager.

EURid charges a non-refundable transfer fee upon successful completion of the transfer.
