Transfer and internal transfer

How do I transfer my domain to another provider?

If you want to transfer your domain to another registrar, you will be asked for the transfer code auth-code (some companies call this code EPP code). This is an alphanumeric code that is only given to the domain administrator to prevent someone from transferring your domain without your consent.

Please note that our name services and products can only be used with domains that are registered with Swizzonic. After the transfer-out, the DNS zone and all hosting data will be deleted immediately.

The transfer code can be generated directly in your user account as follows:

Log in at by clicking on Customer area at the top right.

If you do not remember how to do this, follow these instructions.

Click on the desired domain

Click on the Domain AND DNS icon.

Then click on AuthInfo-Code

For some extensions, you will find the transfer code (Auth-Code) directly on the page (e.g. .com, .net, .org).
For other extensions (e.g. .it), you will find a button that allows you to request that the transfer code is automatically sent directly to the domain owner’s e-mail address.

For many other extensions, including international extensions, it is not possible to retrieve the transfer code (auth code) yourself and you will need to open a support request in the customer area instead.

How do I transfer my domain from another provider to Swizzonic?

Start the transfer from the transfer area.
Enter the name of the domain you wish to transfer and click on Transfer domain.

At this point you will be asked whether you want to keep the current DNS or switch to the DNS.

Which option should I choose?

  • By selecting I will keep the current DNS, you can continue to use services such as e-mail and website services, provided your current provider allows this.
  • With the option I choose Swizzonic DNS, you will have to recreate your mailboxes and publish the content of your website. Your current services will no longer work. With this option, you have two different choices:
    • Activate the default Swizzonic DNS zone and wait for the transfer to recreate your services
    • Configure the DNS zone so that it is addressed to the current platform or to external services that you already use

Once you have made your DNS selection, you will be prompted on the next screen to enter all the data for the domain holder.

During the transfer phase, it is not possible to change the domain holder details. As soon as the domain has landed on, you can change this information. (see instructions for changing the holder).

Complete the first part of the transfer process by selecting your preferred payment method.

Once payment has been made, an e-mail will be sent to the recipient’s address asking them to enter the transfer code via a link. (Authorization code)

Once the transfer code has been entered, it is no longer possible to stop the transfer; it will be completed automatically within the time frame set by the authorities.

Make sure that you have started the transfer with the correct data.

The transfer time for certain TLDs is approximately 5 working days and cannot be accelerated by us. Please contact the losing registrar.

General information to be checked BEFORE starting the transfer

Always follow the checklist below to protect yourself from delays or rejections during the transfer:

  • Checkthe expiration date of the domain you wish to transfer: We recommend that you only start the transfer if the domain has not yet expired, otherwise the process may fail.
  • Check the domain status on the WHOIS page: If the domain is not in OK or ACTIVE status, it cannot be transferred and you will need to request a status change from the current domain administrator.
  • Check the registration date of the domain: You can only transfer .com, .net and .org domains if they have been registered for more than 60 days.
  • Make sure that the owner’s and administrator’s email addresses are working: If the contact email addresses are not working, the transfer cannot be completed.
    ATTENTION: According to ICANN international rules, changing the email address of a .com, .net or .org domain will result in its blocking (client transfer prohibited) for 60 days. Click here for details.
  • Unlock your domain: if you have previously locked the domain for transfers or if you have activated Private Whois, contact your provider to request a domain update. Please note that it is not possible to transfer domains registered in private mode.(Private WHOIS)
