AM ccTLD Inter-Registrar Transfer Procedure
GlobalR portfolio’s domain transfer is a free service, and is performed based on an authentication code, which is sent to the domain administrative email. So if You need to transfer the domain first of all your customer needs to apply to the domain’s current registrar and ask them to send the code of the domain. The code should be passed then to the gaining registrar.
After receiving a request from the gaining registrar, confirmation requests are generated and sent by a letter to the losing registrar and administrative contact of the domain name. Each message contains links to approve/refuse the transfer or check its current status. A separate message is sent to the gaining registrar that allows him to check the transfer status.
As soon as both losing registrar and administrative contact approve the transfer, it will be approved. If one of two denies the transfer it will be denied.
If no response is received from the losing registrar in one week it is assumed approved. If no response is received from the administrative contact in the same week the transfer will be refused.
As soon as the process finishes either by explicit approval/refusal or by timeout all three parties will be informed by a letter.
There is a choice to prevent possible transfer request(s) in advance by activating the domain lock flag. In that case the registry will not accept the request initially.
Any transfer request for a domain name that has been registered or transferred or refused to be transferred in less than two months will be refused.
Please note that in order to transfer a domain name the domain must be active. If, the domain is locked, inactive or in the process of being deleted or redeemed, then it doesn’t comply with transferring requirements.
A domain must also have been registered for more than 60 days before you are allowed to transfer registrars.
To change the domain's legal owner the registrar needs to provide the signed (in case of legal entities sealed and signed) and scanned document from the current owner. If the current owner is an individual the registrar needs to provide his/her ID card or passport scan.
On registrars dashboard there is an attached file which must be filled and should be sent to the current owner to sign (in case of legal entities to seal and sign for) and sent back with the requested documents.
NOTE: "Owner change" service before domain expiration date considered as a new registration and demands an annual payment.
