How to Transfer Domains in Minutes, Not Days
The internet survives and thrives on speed. Everything needs to happen in the blink of an eye, and even that’s not fast enough for some. Downloading, uploading, purchasing… speed, speed, speed!
And yet, transferring a domain name to a new owner once it’s sold can take up to 20 days! That can feel like years in ‘online time’. And while a great domain name can certainly be worth the wait, there must surely be a faster way? Well, actually, there is… And now it’s available through Namecheap. The days of waiting for days are done—for some!
Introducing Fast Transfer
We’ve teamed up with one of the world’s premier online marketplaces for buying and selling existing domain names, Afternic. This partnership means that if you place your Namecheap-registered domains for sale through their site, you can use what we call the Fast Transfer Service.
Fast Transfer speeds up the process of moving domain ownership from the seller to the buyer. It basically automates the process of transferring domains between different registrars. The result is a huge reduction in the manual work often involved in these types of sale. It also means that you will get paid a whole lot faster when you sell a domain—and who doesn’t want that?
So… Which Domains are Eligible?
Due to technical constraints, right now the Fast Transfer service is only available for the following top-level domains (TLDs):
But that still covers some of the most popular domain names out there. So you can list your domain names for sale on Afternic for up to $100,000, and transfer them in minutes via Fast Transfer once they sell.
How Do I Get Started?
The key thing here is that your domains must be listed for sale through Afternic’s online marketplace. The service simply won’t work without doing that first. Then you will need to opt-in through your Namecheap account.
Once you’ve actually listed on Afternic, we’ll send you an email with all the instructions and links you need. If you’re already on Afternic and have eligible domains, go and check your inbox. Chances are the email is waiting for you… What are you waiting for?
