How do I verify that my domain is eligible for transfer?

Before purchasing the transfer of any gTLD (e.g., .COM / .NET / .ORG / .BIZ / .INFO etc.) or a new gTLD (e.g. .CLUB / .CLOUD / .TRADE / .TOP etc.), make sure that your domain meets the following conditions:
1. Your domain was registered or transferred at least 60 days ago;
2. The domain is unlocked at the current registrar (its Whois status should be OK or Active);
3. Your domain shows a valid and accessible Admin email address in Whois (we will send the Transfer Approval email there);
We recommend disabling any type of Whois privacy protection / private registration for your domain in order to avoid possible delays with the approval email delivery and possible transfer failure due to enabled privacy.
4. Request an up-to-date Auth/EPP code for the domain at the current registrar.
These conditions apply to the following ccTLDs: .PE / .COM.PE / .NET.PE / .ORG.PE / .US / .CO / .TV / .ME / .IN / .CC / .IO / .CA.
If all criteria are met, you should be able to successfully complete the transfer.
Still, some ccTLDs (.ES and .UK) have additional transfer requirements and/or exclude some points from the list above.

.UK / .CO.UK / .ORG.UK / .ME.UK transfers to Red Fifteen Media
Note: Make sure the domain status is active, not expired. If you wish to transfer an expired domain to Red Fifteen Media, please contact our Support Team for further assistance.
