  • 2

Transfering a domain isn't magical but in most cases happens smoothly
this document covers the scinerio when it does not.

Step 1: Domain transfer requested via Direct Support Transfer form or transfer request when signing up or via partner transfer request form.

Step 2: Direct Support staff will check your account details to make sure you have valid contact details so that the domain transfer can happen.

Step 3: Upon submitting your transfer request on your behalf an email will be sent to the designated email address of the owner of the domain according to the details in the AUDA database for that domain.

Step 4: Read and respond to the above email from TPP Internet acting on behalf of Direct Support for the transfer.

After 3 days that our registrar receives your transfer approval the domain will be active, this is due to AU policy conditions.

 After 30 days if you have failed to approve the transfer the transfer is revoked and a new transfer request has to be established.
