How to transfer your domain from Namecheap to 20i

Here’s how to transfer your domain name to us and start saving on domain renewal prices. Plus you'll get more free features than anywhere else.

Domains that are newer than 60 days, or have been transferred within the last 60 days can't be transferred out of Namecheap. This is due to ICANN rules to prevent fraud. If it’s after 60 days, follow this process: 

How to transfer your domain from Namecheap to 20i
  1. Log in to your Namecheap account.
  2. Go to Domain List and Manage the domain you wish to transfer
  3. Select the Sharing and Transfer tab
  4. Use the Transfer Out section to unlock the domain (if Domain Lock is applied)
Then, if your domain ends with .uk:
  1. In the same Sharing and Transfer tab, select Change
  2. Fill in the form, changing the IPS tag to 20i, which is STACK, and save the changes
  3. Log in My20i, and select Transfer a Domain
  4. Enter the domain name and select Search
  5. Add the domain to your basket and complete checkout. Transfers are free. The transfer will complete almost instantly.
If your domain ends in .com, .net, .org and most other domains, follow these steps:
  1. In the Namecheap Transfer Out section, click on AUTH CODE. The authorisation code (EPP code) will be sent to the email address at which the domain is registered.
  2. Log in My20i, and select Transfer a Domain.
  3. Enter the domain name and select Search.
  4. Add the domain to your basket and complete checkout.
  5. There's a £6.00/$12.00 transfer fee to move the domain but don't worry, for most TLDs you'll get an extra years renewal added to the renewal totally free of charge.
  6. An email will be sent - usually instantly but can take up to 6 hours - to the e-mail address listed as the Admin Contact.
  7. Follow the link in this e-mail and Approve the transfer by entering the authorisation code obtained earlier.
  8. Once authorized the transfer will complete automatically within 5 days.
If domain ends in .uk.com, .gb.com, .eu.com, .uk.net, .gb.net and .eu.net (CentralNIC domains):

  2. Log in My20i, and select Transfer a Domain.

  5. You’ll be prompted for the Authorisation Code. Enter it here.
