Domain Name Transfer from 1and1 IONOS

Domain Name Transfer from 1&1 IONOS to 123 Simples -

If your website is currently registered with 1&1 IONOS and you wish to transfer the domain name and services to 123 Simples, then this article will show you how to prepare your 1&1 IONOS domain for a transfer to our servers. 1&1 will provide you with an Authorisation Code which you will need to complete the transfer process.

Please note that certain domains (.com, .net, .org, .info, .biz, .mobi, .cc and .tv) must be registered under your name for at least 60 days before they can be transferred to a different provider. This is required by the ICANN directive and applies to all providers.

Step 1 - Disable Private Registration -

If you are using private registration for your domain, you must disable it on 1&1 IONOS's end before starting a domain transfer. You can check if private registration is enabled for your domain in the Domains section of the Privacy & Contact Details page.

Select your domain.
Disable the private registration option.

If the private registration option is not displayed on the Privacy & Contact Details page, it is not available for this domain extension and therefore does not need to be disabled.

Step 2 - Disable the Transfer Lock -

For security reasons, domains with generic domain extensions (e.g. .com, .net or .org) are locked against transfer by default. Before you start a domain transfer, you must disable this transfer lock.

You can check if a domain transfer lock is enabled for your domain in the Domains section of the Renewal & Transfer page.
Select your domain.
Disable the Domain transfer lock option.

Step 3 - Showing the Authorisation Code -

The authorisation code prevents unauthorised third parties from accessing your domain. You need it to approve (authorise) the domain transfer with your new provider.

You can find the authorisation code for your domain in the Domains section of the Renewal & Transfer page.
Select your domain.
Click Show Authorisation Code.

Your authorisation code will be requested from the registration authority responsible for your domain name. It can occasionally take several minutes for the authorisation code to be displayed on your 1&1 control panel.

Once you have successfully prepared the domain for the transfer and accessed the authorisation code, please let our support team know, and we can complete the domain name transfer process for you.
