How to transfer a domain from Network Solutions

Before submitting a transfer request with us, you will need to 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").

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:

  • NetSol_mydoms.png

  • 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 Off or Request Authorization in the Domain Protect row:

  • Check the box that you acknowledge the warning and click Continue Transfer;
  • From the drop-down menu, select Request Authorization Code;
  • Select Leave Domain Transfer Lock Off, check the box for Request Authorization Code and click Save:


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.

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.
