Transfer domains

Login to the Domain Manager and go to Domains > Initiate transfer

This form lets you transfer multiple domain names at once. If not filled automatically by a previous form, you can paste or type the desired domain names complete with the extensions.

You can prefill this form using a registration profile created earlier. You can create such a profile at the Create registration profile page.


  1. First off enter the domains you wish to transfer in the domain names field.

   2. Enter the registrant admin- tech- and billing contacts or use a registration profile.

Privacy Protect
 3. Set privacy protect settings to account default, yes or no.

FOA contacts
   4. Select the preferred FOA contacts

Nameserver configuration

  1. Select the desired nameservers, The following options are available:
  • No nameservers; the domain name will not resolve
  • DNS template; use a template to work with the Realtime Register name servers.
  • Nameservers; provide the names of your own name server hosts.


   2. Choose the desired DNSSEC settings

Because most registries support key data and very few registries accept DS data, the DNSSEC records you can add are limited to key-data. The Realtime Register name servers you can use with the DNS templates do not support DNSSEC yet.


Set a flag for the kind of signing key used. Choose 256 (ZSK), for a zone signing key or 257 (KSK) for a key signing key.

Choose the algorithm you used for encrypting from the dropdown list. Please note; if you transfer different TLD’s at once, make sure that the chosen algorithm is supported by all registries involved.

Public Key
Paste the generated public key in the Public key field.
You can add additional DNSSEC key-data by clicking on the Add key-data button.

Designated Agent
If available for the domains selected for transfer, choose whether you want to use the Designated Agent option. Keep in mind that you'll need consent from the registrant to act as a designated agent.

View quote
The View quote button will bring you to the quote page. Here you can see the prices that will be charged to your account and you can set the number of years you want to register the domains (if applicable.) Remember that you need to fill out authcodes to complete the quote. When the authcodes are set, prices for the transfer will appear and you can hit 'Transfer' to execute the transfer.
