How Do I transfer a domain?

Unlike .com/ domain names, domains do not have an auth code/EPP code/domain password. Instead, transfers for these domains are handled using a system unique to the domain space.

Each registrar has an IPS-TAG denoting its identity. To move the domain from one registrar to another, this tag must be changed by the current registrar.

To transfer a domain to Melbourne IT, contact the current registrar and have them change the tag to ours (MELBOURNE-IT). When this is done, contact our customer care team and let us know the contact details to use on the domain.

To transfer a domain away from Melbourne IT, contact our customer care team quoting the domain name, the registry key and the IPS-TAG of the new registrar. We will then change the tag for you and email you to confirm.
