Before you can transfer your domain name registered with Network Solutions to us, you need to prepare your domain name so it will successfully complete the transfer process.
If your domain name is not registered with Network Solutions, visit Transferring Your Domain From Another Registrar for instructions for other registrars.
To make sure your domain name can be transferred, confirm that:
Some registrars prevent domain names from transferring away if the contact information associated with a domain was updated within 60 days.
Ensure that the administrative contact (admin) for your domain name (registrant contact for .au domain names) has a valid email address in the Whois database. We and Network Solutions use this email address to send you important information about the transfer.
NOTE: If your domain name has private registration, a service that hides your personal information from the public, you cannot verify your admin email address in the Whois database. You must contact your current registrar to cancel the private registration, and then you can update the email address, if necessary.
To update these contacts at Network Solutions
To remove domain name privacy
Get an authorization code (also known as an EPP code or transfer key) from your current registrar, if required. Some domain name extensions, primarily country-code top-level domain names (ccTLDs), do not require an authorization code.
To obtain the authorization code from Network Solutions
Contact Network Solutions support at 888-642-9675 if you haven't received the authorization code after 24 hours.
By default, all domains registered with Network Solutions are placed in "Domain Protect" status, which displayed as "Registrar-Lock" at the registry. Before a domain transfer is requested, the lock must be removed and the registry status verified as "Active."
To unlock your domain name
