What is the best way to transfer a live .COM or .NET domain

  We suggest you make sure your DNS is up and running here before you try to move your domain. This means that either your own dns servers or ours are configured and ready to accept requests for your name. Ask the current ISP to change the name servers to ours before you transfer it. Please note that some ISP’s will remove your DNS immediately they change the name servers. This could leave your domain in limbo for a day or two if you don't change the name servers first. Following the procedures above, making sure the domain is older than 60 days, and making sure the domain is not on ‘Transfer Lock’ before you try to transfer domains should make your transfers go smoothly. If you need further advice just email
