Domains are required to be renewed annually.
To transfer a domain name to the Keltech Designs registrar, a few requirements must be met. Before you proceed with a domain transfer make sure you have verified that each item in this list is configured as required.
Q. Has the domain been registered for at least 60 days?
Domains are not eligible for transfer until 60 days after initial registration.
Q. Is the domain expired or close to the expiration date?
A. Expired domains or domains within 14 days of their expiration date cannot be transferred and must be renewed at the current registrar.
Q. Is the domain locked?
A. If so, it has to be unlocked. Contact the current registrar for instructions.
Q. Does the domain use privacy protection (IDProtect)?
A. If so, it must be disabled during transfer. You can manage your domain by logging into your KD Account.
Q. Are the name servers for the domain pointing to the Keltech Designs name servers?
A. Update the domain’s name servers to point to Keltech Designs. Contact the current registrar for instructions. Important: The name server settings cannot be changed during the domain name transfer process.
Q. Do you have the domain authorization code?
A. Contact your current registrar for the code. This is called an “Auth-Code” or an “EPP Code”.
Q. Are you the administrative e-mail contact in the whois record for the domain?
A. The administrative email contact authorizes the domain transfer once the process has begun. Important: An email will be sent to the administrative email contact for the domain name and the confirmation link in that email must be clicked to verify the transfer. If no action is taken on the confirmation email the transfer will fail.
