How To Transfer Domain From Moniker To NameCheap

Posted In Domain - Hosting - By Techtiplib on Friday, November 14th, 2014 With No Comments »

As you all know, recently after changing the system, Moniker has not been work as before, such as: often inaccessible, no live support, very long answer emails and special is suddenly froze the account and it takes a lot of time to be able to active again. And another feature is Moniker has only one layer of security, that is the reason why I transfer domain to NameCheap:

Advantages of NameCheap:

  • The price is not expensive (about $10/year)
  • Has many promotion program
  • Live chat support very quickly
  • 2 step verification as Google mail

You need to assure that the following applies to the domain:

  • The domain must be registered or transferred between registrars more than 60 days ago.
  • The domain has been “Unlocked” for transfer at the current registrar (domain status should be OK or Active).
  • The domain is showing your current e-mail for the admin contact in the whois as that is where the authorization email will be sent to. Please make sure you disable privacy protection/private registration for your domain, otherwise the transfer may fail due to the fact that the contact information is protected in Whois.
  • The domain is not expired.

Note: If your domain expired with your old registrar and you renewed it with them, please do not transfer it within 45 days of the previous expiration date. Otherwise, according to ICANN an extra year would not be added to your domain name since losing registrar revokes renewal in such cases. And you’d lose renewal fees paid to the old registrar. Please see more details here.

Step 1: Go to your Moniker account, select Domains/My domains and click on your domain that you would like to transfer. Click on “lock” symbol to unlock the domain. Select “Advance settings” and click “Request authcode via email” button at Authorization code, then check email to get the code.

What benefits if you transfer domain to NameCheap:
