Question/Problem
Getting Started: What does the Transfer Status mean?

Answer/Solution

The transfer status displays the current state of the registrar transfer. Possible values are listed below:

  • Transfer Now - The domain is not managed by the property and has a .com, .net, .org, .info or .biz extension. This domain is eligible to be transferred automatically, subject to registrar transfer requirements. Follow the link to validate the requirements for registrar transfer.
  • Manual Transfer - The domain is not a .com, .net, .org, .info or .biz domain and is not currently managed by the property. Follow the link to initiate a registrar transfer through The Moo Crew.
  • Completed - The registrar transfer has been completed successfully.
  • Failed - The registrar transfer has failed. The reasons for failure may be: the domain's administrative contact or the registry denied the transfer; one or more transfer criteria were not met.
  • Pending Owner Approval - A registrar transfer has been initiated and is pending approval by the domain's Administrative Contact . Every transfer begins with this status. If the administrative contact does not approve the transfer within 5-7 days, the transfer is canceled.
  • Processing Request - A registrar transfer has been initiated and is currently in process.
  • Pending Registry Approval - A registrar transfer has been initiated and is pending approval by the registry. If the registry does not approve the transfer within 9 days, the transfer will be cancelled.
  • Cancelled - Transfer has been cancelled because either the Administrative Contact or the registry did not approve the transfer.
