Transferring Your Domain Names

The methods of transfer for .ie, .com and .uk domains do vary; please take a moment to look over the below instructions. We would recommend paying particular attention to the Domain Transfer Notes at the bottom of this page.

Firstly, it is important to be aware that the transfer of domains can take some time to fully complete. Blacknight cannot be held responsible for delays in transfers due to errors made by third parties.

  • .ie domains will typically transfer within two working days, so long as the appropriate documentationis provided.
  • .com domain transfers can take up to 7 days in some cases; please ensure that you have allowed for this when transferring a domain that is due for renewal. We urge you to initiate transfers as far in advance as possible; expired domains cannot be transferred.
  • domains will usually transfer within one day, however you should allow up to 7 days.
  • There are two types of .eu domain transfer. One is a simple transfer, while the other is a trade. Most .eu domain transfers complete within one or two working days

Please note that ‘transferring a domain’ means moving the billing of a domain ONLY.

This does not transfer your email accounts or website content, or automatically update the DNS.
