If your domain name is less than 60 days old or has been transferred to us within the last 60 days, you will not be able to transfer the domain. For more details see the ICANN Transfer Policy which all registrars have to abide by.

Before you start the transfer make sure you have access to the email address for the registered owner of your domain, check the WHOIS output for your domain to find this out.

  1. Log in to your LCN.com account.
  2. Click the Domains icon and select Manage next to the domain you want to transfer.
  3. Click Transfer Away in the Current Domain menu on the left.
  4. Click the Continue With Transfer button.

Once a request to transfer your domain is received from the registrar you are transferring to, authorisation emails will be sent to the owner and admin contacts. If there is no acknowledgement from the owner or admin contacts within 5 days of a transfer request being made, the transfer will automatically take place.
