ICANN Announces Inter-Registrar Transfer Policy Starting November 12, 2004

The new policy covers transfers initiated on or after November 12, 2004.

Under the new policy, if you wish to transfer your domain name from one ICANN-accredited registrar to another, you may initiate the transfer process by contacting the registrar to which you wish to transfer the name. This registrar is required to confirm your intent to transfer your domain name using Form GR. If you do not respond or return Form GR, your transfer request will not be processed. Your current registrar may also choose to confirm your intent to transfer using Form LR. You may not transfer your domain name to a new registrar within the first 60 days after initial registration, or the first 60 days after a transfer.

The Inter-Registrar Transfer Policy includes a "Registrar Transfer Dispute Resolution Policy" for resolving disputes between registrars involving alleged violations of the policy.
