Expediting a domain transfer

Once submitted, a transfer can take about 5-6 days to complete. Sometimes this is too long to wait! You can expedite the transfer so the domain name transfers within a matter of hours instead of days by following these steps.

How to expedite incoming transfers

If you are transferring a domain name to Name.com, you can view the status of your transfer from within your account by following these steps:

  1. Log in to your Name.com account.
  2. Click on the ACCOUNT tab, located at the top, select TOOLS and then select TRANSFERS IN PROGRESS.

If the status is Transfer Submitted, your transfer is progressing smoothly and the domain will automatically be transferred to your account in 5-6 days. To expedite the transfer, you will need to contact the losing registrar and ask them to approve the transfer. We do not have the power on our end to expedite incoming transfers. 

Note: If the status is something else, review all incoming transfer statuses to determine what is needed for the transfer to be submitted. 

Expedite Outgoing Transfers

If you are transferring your domain name away from Name.com, we can approve the transfer for you so it completes after a few hours rather than several days.

We can only expedite the transfer if the transfer has been submitted. Once the transfer has been submitted, you will see Your Domain is Pending Transfer on the domain management page in your account:


Please log in to your account fill out our support form and request that we approve the transfer. We will respond as soon as we have manually approved the transfer.

If you do not contact us, the transfer will still finish on its own, it just takes a little more time.

Note: It can take a few hours after we approve the transfer for the domain name to appear in the account of the new registrar. We thank you for your patience.
