Transfer Your Domain Names TO ESQSites FROM 3rd Party

Last Updated: Sep 16, 2016 10:51AM PDT
In order to transfer a Domain Name among registrars, you, the authorized registrant, must first possess "good standing" with your paid Domain Name account and have a "clear" registration status to then request your specific Domain Name's Transfer Key code.

A transfer of Domain Name management can be denied due to the following conditions: 
  • Registration or Transfer occurred in the last 60 days
  • Evidence of fraud
  • Uniform Domain-Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) action
  • Court order
  • Reasonable dispute over the identity of the person authorizing the transfer
  • Unpaid Balances due
  • Express written objection from the Domain Name holder
  • Lock Status 
Hosting is not the same as Domain
NOTE: Hosting service is NOT the equivalent of Domain Name management.

Hosting MUST be provided by ESQSites, while Domain Names can be managed by ESQSites OR a 3rd party registrar (i.e. GoDaddy to NetworkSolutions, etc.). If you wish for Domain Name management to continue with a 3rd party registrar, you MUST see these IMPORTANT configuration details. 

Please open the

To transfer your Domain Name FROM ESQSites TO a 3rd party registrar go here and follow the steps.

To transfer your Domain Name TO ESQSites FROM a 3rd party, please see below and follow the steps:

STEP 1. To transfer TO ESQSites, log in to your 3rd party registrar account.

Note: ESQSites cannot directly contact the 3rd party domain name provider because ESQSites is not a customer of the 3rd party domain name provider and violates privacy clauses.
STEP 2: Ensure the proper email address is associated with the Domain Name within your 3rd party account profile and by checking the WHOIS Contact Information. It may take 24 hours for any changes to update online.

STEP 3: Ensure that your Domain Name is unlocked, unprotected or not private using a Domain Name Management area.
