Procedure for transferring .IE domain names
When you request a transfer for your .IE domain name to NETIM, the procedure below is followed. After transfer, we become the registrar of your domain name.
To initiate the transfer of a .IE domain name, the domain owner must provide us a writen request dully signed and additionnaly on paper letter head + stamp for companies.
Once your order has been confirmed, we will send to the customer account's email address, a sample request. Once received back and approved by NETIM, we will send the request for the transfer of your domain name to the .IE registry:
- In the event of acceptance, the transfer is immediatly carried out.
- In the event of refusal, the transfer is cancelled.
Once the transfer has been finalised, the domain name's expiration date is extended for a one year period starting from the date of the end of transfer. For example, if the domain expires on the 2013-12-15 and if the transfer is carried out on the 2013-11-30 the new expiration date will then be the 2014-11-30.
- Deadline for transfer: 2 or 3 days before expiration of the domain name
- Best date for transfer: not less than 1 week before expiration of the domain name
