How to transfer a domain from Network Solutions

Before submitting a transfer request with us you will need to follow these steps:

  • Unlock your domain by turning off the Domain Protection feature, and Request a domain Authorization Code (sometimes referred to as an "Auth code" or "EPP code");
  • Disable Private Registration;
  • Ensure the contact information (typically the Administrative contact email address for the domain) is valid and up-to-date.

  • 1. How to unlock your domain and obtain an Auth code from Network Solutions:
    • Login to your Network Solutions account;
    • Under the My Products and Services tab, click on My Domain Names:

    Note: It may take up to 2-3 days for the Auth Code to be emailed to you. If you do not receive a code, please contact Network Solutions support.

    2. How to disable Private Registration:

    • Login to your Network Solutions account;
    • Under the My Products and Services tab, click on My Domain Names:
    • Click Manage next to the domain name (or, if you have only one domain, you may continue directly to the next step);
    • Scroll down to the Details section, select Turn Private Registration Off in the Registration - Private Registration Status row:

    • Select Turn Private Registration Off, then click GO.
    3. Make sure the Whois contact information for the domain is valid and up-to-date:

    • Check the Whois contact details for the domain from within your account or by using any Whois tool for the domain (e.g. Namecheap Whois tool). Please pay specific attention to the Administrative email address, as the Transfer Verification email you will need to approve the transfer will be sent to this address
    • Once you have confirmed that the contact information is correct, you may proceed with the transfer. If it is not correct, make corrections from within your Network Solutions account before proceeding:

    Once the domain name is unlocked and you have received your Auth code, you may initiate a transfer to Namecheap. Please refer to this article for more information on how to transfer a domain to us.
