A registrar transfer is the transfer of a domain name from another registrar to Ravand. This allows you to take advantage of our great support, free services, and low renewal costs. You can transfer your domain to us as long as it has been with your current registrar for more than 60 days and is not expired.
When you submit a registrar transfer, an e-mail is sent to the administrative contact's e-mail address that you have set with your current registrar. In this e-mail is a link to a page that allows you either Accept or Decline the transfer. You need to accept the transfer within 5 days of receipt of this e-mail. Once you accept the transfer, we send a request to your registrar asking them to transfer the domain to us. At this point, your registrar may or may not send you an e-mail asking you to accept the transfer. Your registrar has up to 5 days to decide whether to transfer the domain or not. If your registrar has not accepted the transfer within 5 days, the transfer expires.
