  11. Once the transfer has been initiated, our system will automatically check for Fasthosts’ request to move your domain to us. This normally completes within 24 hours but is down to how quickly Fasthosts released your domain.

  16. If the transfer isn’t authorised it’ll time out after seven days and the process will need to be re-started.
  17. Please note: The speed of the transfer relies on how quickly you authorise the emails that are sent to the registered owner and admin contacts on the domain.
