Transferring .com/.net/.org/.biz/.mobi/.tv domains

The process for transferring a .com/.net/.org/.info/.biz/.mobi/.tv is entirely different.

In order to avoid any issues, please ensure that you initiate the transfer as far in advance as possible. Blacknight recommend transferring your domain at least a month prior to the renewal date.

You will first need to ensure that your domain’s listed details are correct, in particular the email address. You must have access to the domain’s admin contact email address to complete the transfer.

  • Contact your current provider. If you do not have access to the email address associated with the domain you wish to transfer, you will need to update this. You will then need to request that they unlock the domain for transfer and provide you with an “authorisation key” or “EPP code”.
  • Complete you order at
  • Please ensure that you check the email address for the domain daily (including your Junk Mail folder). Magnets registrar will send an email to this address to verify the transfer request; you must respond to this.
  • If you have any queries or concerns regarding the progress of your transfer, please do not hesitate to contact

If you are moving from an ISP such as Eircom, Vodafone, please ensure that any billing issues are resolved with the ISP before you request the transfer, as this can result in delays. The larger Irish ISPs and hosting companies will respect requests for domain transfers to other companies provided that no such issues exist.

In the case of domains registered through Joker, you will need to initiate the transfer process from within the Joker control panel.

Important note: Domains cannot be transferred between registrars until the domain is 60 days old.
