  • An internal handover will transfer all current services that are related to the domain such as webhosting or forwarding service. The nameservers, DNS settings and WHOIS-settings for the domain will also be transferred and can be edited after the domain has been pushed.
  • For safety reasons a domain can only be transferred 17 days after a registration or transfer via the TransIP Internal Push.
  • It is also possible to transfer a domain from another TransIP account to your own account. This can be done using the regular 'transfer' option. For more information, please consult the following page: How do I transfer my domain(s) to TransIP?
