Transfer waiting for Admin Contact Approval

Upon initiating a Transfer, our system sends an email to the Admin Contact of the domain name as appearing in the Whois server of the Current Registrar. You can verify the email address we fetched from their Whois server at the time you initiated the Transfer, within the Order Details view itself.

In case the Admin Contact does not receive the authorization email after placing a Transfer, you may resend it by clicking the Resend Authorization Request button.


There might be instances where the Admin Contact email address was changed after the Transfer request was placed. In such a case, click the Resend Authorization Request button. This would cause our system to:

  • invalidate the previous request,

  • query the Current Registrar's Whois server again for the Administrative Contact email address, and

  • mail him/her a fresh authorization request.

Each time the Resend Authorization Request button is clicked, the system would repeat the above mentioned process.

Sometimes, it may be possible that the Admin Contact has still not received an email sent by our system, due to any of several problems including network blockages, spam filters, etc.. To circumvent such a situation, you may click the Transfer Fax Form button and follow the instruction therein, to send us your consent to Transfer your domain name to 499SiteDesign.


We await for 5 days for the Administrative Contact to approve the Transfer. If the Administrative Contact remains silent (neither approves or disapproves the Transfer), we assume that the Administrative Contact does not wish to Transfer his domain name and we delete this Order in our system.
