Description of Fast Transfer Service
Namecheap allows you to use the services of Afternic to offer and sell your domain name(s) to third parties through Afternic’s registrar network. Domain names sold through Afternic’s service will be subject to the Fast Transfer Service. You understand and agree that any domains subject to the Fast Transfer Service may be immediately transferred from your account to the account and/or registrar of the purchaser of the domain name. You confirm that Namecheap may take any actions necessary to facilitate this Fast Transfer Service, including but not limited to removing the transfer lock, initiating a change of registrant information, and disabling Namecheap’s standard transfer procedure (as detailed in Namecheap’s Registration Agreement). The Fast Transfer Service may not be instantaneous, and may take several days to complete.
You can remove any domain name from Afternic’s service at any time, however such removal is not instantaneous and may take several days to complete. You agree that you authorize any sale for any domain name listed through Afternic’s service until such time that removal is complete.
