How do I transfer my domain name from OfficeLive.com to MelbourneIT?

by | Jul 3, 2014 | Domain Names, Technical Help

  • IMPORTANT: Transferring your domain name to another registrar cancels your OfficeLive account and you will lose all your web pages, email, etc.
  • The Domain Registration Key (DRK) provided initially is different from the Domain Name password required later during domain name transfer. MelbourneIT calls it Domain Name Password/authinfo (see step 19 below) while GoDaddy calls it an Authorization Code.
  • The cancellation confirmation email from OfficeLive comes in a couple of minutes and does not take 48 hours as mentioned below.
  • Make sure the domain name is unlocked at MelbourneIT before attempting a transfer to another registrar.
