  • The domain name must not be within 60 days of its initial registration or within 60 days of being transferred from another registrar.
  • You domain name is not expired. If it is, it should be in your registrar's grace period(0-30 days depending on the registrar).
  • Domain must be in "unlocked" state. Usually, a domain is in "ClientTransferProhibited" status which means the domain cannot be transferred. You need to contact your current registrar to unlock the domain for transfer.


STEP 3: Obtain your Auth Code

Auth Code(Authorization code) is also called EPP Key. It is required when transferring domains from one registrar to another. The transfer Authorization Code is created when the domain is first registered and can be obtained from the current registrar for your domain. Some registrars offer facilities for you to generate and manage your own Auth Code. In other cases, you will need to contact the registrar directly to obtain it. The registrar must provide you with the Auth Code within 5 calendar days of your request.

STEP 4: Complete the transfer

After you supply the correct Auth Code, your domain will be pending release from the current registrar. All domain registrars can release the domain name right away but they are allowed to keep the domain name for 5 more days. If your transfer did not complete right after you supply the Auth Code, you can contact the registrar to have it released or wait for 5 days for the transfer to complete. You will receive a confirmation email when your domain is transferred to Dynu.

NOTE: If you are currently using another DNS service provider and will switch to our DNS service after the transfer, please first back up the DNS configurations at your current DNS service provider and set up your DNS records by signing up for the DNS service to avoid any downtime.
