Authorise the transfer

Shortly after you have made your domain name transfer request, our international domain registrar (OpenSRS) will send an email to your domain name’s admin contact email address asking you to authorise the domain name transfer. All you need to do is follow the easy domain transfer instructions in the email to complete the move to Fasthosts.

The transfer must be authorised within five days of OpenSRS sending you the email. It may then take a few more days to complete the transfer – but it’s worth it for the superb service and excellent value you’ll get once your domain name is with us here at Fasthosts.

gTLD domain name transfers are free and you’ll keep any remaining months from the current registration period. We will automatically extend the registration for a further 12 months at our current rate when you transfer to us.
