Transfer from Tucows

This page takes you step by step through the procedure for transferring a domain away from Tucows and into an account at Caridot.

The transfer process involves the tasks that are described below. Following the transfer tasks, we provide information about tracking the progress of the transfer, and ICANN rules regarding rejections.


To make sure your domain name can be transferred, check the following:

  • The domain name has been registered for at least 60 days, and has been at Tucows for at least 60 days.
  • The domain name is not in "client update prohibited" status.

Before you can transfer a domain, the Registrant and Administrative contact information must be up-to-date at Tucows, because it is these contacts who receive the transfer request and okay the transfer.

To update these contacts at Tucows:

  1. Log on to your domain name at
  2. Click "Manage Domain".
  3. Type in any needed updates to the domain contact information,and save.

Some TLDs require that you provide an authorization code for your domain name, to provide an extra level of assurance that the transfer request comes from an authorized source.

To transfer a .com, .net, .org, .info, .biz, .us, .name, .cn, .tw, .cc, or .in domain name, obtain the authorization code from Tucows

  1. Log on to your domain name at
  2. Click "Manage Domain".
  3. The authorization code is in the "Domain Extras" section.

Transfers of TLDs other than those named above do not require any codes or tags.


Before you can transfer a domain away from Tucows, the domain must be unlocked. Locking is a feature most registrars offer to prevent unauthorized transfers (hijacking) of domains.

To unlock:

  1. Contact Tucows technical support.
  2. Ask them to unlock the domain name.

Once you have prepared the domain name at Tucows, you're ready to transfer to Caridot.
