How do I transfer my legacy domain to VentraIP Australia?
Updated Thursday January 28th 2021 / Category Accounts
Before you begin
- You will need to make sure you have the EPP code for your domain name (this is also known as a domain password, auth code or domain name key).
- You can obtain the EPP code for your domain by logging into https://legacyservicemanagement.com/. Once logged in, follow these steps:
- Navigate to ‘My Domains‘ and click on ‘Settings/Spanner’ icon (Located next to the domain name you wish to transfer). This will take you to the domain name management page of your domain name.
- Click ‘Get EPP Code’. If you’re unable to locate your EPP code you can reach out to our Accounts and Billing Team team via your VIPControl account (you should have a VIPControl account with the same email address as your legacy account) or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
- You will need to ensure that the Registrant Email address listed on the domain is up to date as you’ll need to click a link to approve the transfer. You can do this via https://legacyservicemanagement.com/ >> ‘My Domains‘ >> ‘Settings/Spanner’ icon (Located next to the domain name you wish to transfer) >> Contact Information >> Email.
Submitting the domain for transfer
- When you’re ready to get started with the domain name transfer, head over to our domain name transfer ordering form. During the ordering process, you will be asked for the EPP code of the domain name you’re transferring to VentraIP Australia.
- Once you have submitted your order with the EPP code you will then be able to process payment for the transfer(If your transfer involves a renewal – Refer to our Domain Pricing List to see if a renewal is involved with your domain name transfer).
- An email will be sent to the registrant contact email address with an approval link. Click the link to approve the domain name transfer.
- Note: Due to GDRP compliance, all GTLDs and newTLDs will skip the approval link stage of the domain transfer process and simply begin the transfer.
- The domain name transfer will then begin, this can take 2-5 days to complete.
- Once the transfer is complete, you will be able to manage your domain name(s) within your VIPControl account >> My Services >> Domains.
