Transfers to Irish Domains
You can only transfer a domain that you already own
but was registered through a different company**. The process for transferring a domain name varies depending on the domain type.
Transfer your Domain Name to Irish Domains:
Please refer to the instructions below with regard to the TLD you wish to transfer to Irish Domains before placing the transfer order.
A transfer code is required to transfer a .ie domain. The code may be requested from your current registrar or you may be able to request it directly via the IEDR Auth Code Portal
Before placing a transfer order, please contact your current registrar and request that the domain be UNLOCKED for transfer, and that they issue you the domains' authorization code (EPP code). This code must be entered when placing the transfer request.
Please disable any privacy protection on your domain while transferring. You should also check in advance that the contact email address on the domain is in use and can be accessed by you. If not, it must be updated before the transfer order is placed.
If you have registered the domain yourself, you may have a control panel where you can access your domain directly to unlock it and issue the code.
Once you have completed the above, you can simply place the transfer request directly on our website using the search/transfer facility on the home page.
Contact your current registrar and request a TAG change to IRISHDOMAINS – (the tag must be one word and UPPERCASE)
Place the transfer order directly on our website
**To prevent abuse Domain transfer fees are non-refundable (failed transfers can be restarted if required).
Once a transfer order is placed, we require the transfer authorization code for the domain in order to complete the transfer.
You should contact your current registrar and request the authorization code (this will normally be emailed to the contact email for the domain). Upon receipt, the authorization code can be emailed to email@example.com.
