Inter registrar transfers or ccTLD transfers

Depending on the TLD that is transferred the type of transfer (internal transfer/inter registrar transfers for example), approval of both the old and new registrant is necessary. The transfer will only complete instantly when both the old and new reigstrant have approved the transfer FOA. In case no approval is given, the transfer will fail once the TIMER resumetype has run out.

gTLD transfers

For gTLD inter registrar transfers like .COM, .NET, .ORG etc. the FOA does not have to be approved for a transfer to auto complete 5 business days after the transfer has been requested with a valid authcode. gTLD transfers will only fail when the registrant rejects the outgoing FOA from the losing registrar.

Once either the new or old registrant has approved the transfer, this will be displayed on the Transfer info tile. After approval of both the old and new registrant, the transfer will be completed
