Can I transfer my expired domain to another registrar?
While we strongly recommend initiating your domain transfer at least 2 weeks prior to its expiration date, it is sometimes possible to transfer an expired domain. Our system will have to move your expired domain to "active" status before you will be able to retrieve your authorization code, so please submit your expired domain unlock request as soon as possible. There is a processing period of 5 days.
NOTE: Not all expired domains can be transferred. Domains that have entered the "Redemption Period" will need to be restored before they can be transferred. Most expired ccTLDs cannot be transferred at all.
