How do I initiate a change ownership request if I am the recipient (Domain Pull)?

There are two ways to initiate a free change ownership request depending on if you are the recipient (who can do a domain pull) or the current owner (who can a domain push) of the domain. You only need to push the domain or pull the domain; not both.

If you are the recipient, you need to have the owner unlock the domain before you start your change ownership (domain pull) order. You should also have the owner make sure the domain is not about to expire because after the domain pull order is submitted, the owner must authorize the pull before the domain expires. Otherwise, the domain must be renewed by the owner before it can be moved to your account.

Once the owner has made sure the domain is not about to expire and unlocked the domain, you can follow these steps to submit your change ownership (domain pull) order:

  1. Go to our Change Domain Ownership page.
  2. Enter the domain name you wish to receive.
  3. Click on the "Add to Order" button.
  4. Follow the "Checkout" process to submit your order.

If you do not already have an existing Dynadot account, the system will prompt you to create a free account while your order is being checked out. Once you have submitted the domain pull order, an email will be sent to the owner of the domain asking them to authorize the move. Once they authorize the move, the domain will automatically be pulled from their account and placed in your account.

NOTE: You can only do a bulk change ownership request by having the owner submit a domain push order. There is no way for a recipient to submit a bulk domain pull order. Please note that we will be sending the Forum Name and Organization / Name to the domain owner.

*Custom DNS settings do not carry over when a domain is moved between Dynadot accounts*
