How can I move a domain name to another person who doesn’t have a Namecheap account yet?

Sometimes you may need to move a domain name to a person who does not have an account with Namecheap. No worries! We’re prepared for situations like these. All you have to do is send an email invitation to the respective person for him/her to become a new domain name owner.

To proceed with sending the email invitation, please follow these steps:

1) Sign in to the Namecheap account where a domain name is currently located.

2) Select Domain List from the left navigation sidebar and click on the Manage button that appears in front of your domain name:

3) Go to the Sharing & Transfer tab and find the Change Ownership section. Enter the email address of the new domain name owner and click on the Change button:

4) You must select Use current contacts in the Registrant Contact section of the corresponding window that appears since no account or contact information has been filled in yet:

Next steps should be followed by the respective person who accepts the invitation:

2) You will be redirected to the Namecheap homepage with the login and signup forms, where you can either enter the details of an existent account or create a new one.

3) In the Create An Account form on the right, fill out all the required fields. Make sure that you enter the same email address the invitation was sent to:
