How do I accept a domain transfer?

This article will show you how to accept a domain transfer within your 123 Reg Control Panel.

If you’re transferring a domain from a third-party account to your 123 Reg account, you will need to accept the transfer within your 123 Reg account to complete the process. To do this, simply follow the instructions below.

Step 6 of 7

Next, you’ll need to decide how you want to review the contact details for your domain(s) by choosing the relevant option. This includes:

  1. Skip review and approve all info: this will accept the contact information on your domain and apply the details shown in the contact form for any domains that don’t have valid contact details.
  2. Use below contact info for all domains: this will apply the details shown in the contact form for all the domains you’ve selected.
  3. Use for all contact types: unselect this option if you’d rather use different contact details for each contact type (i.e. Registrant, Billing, Technical, etc).

Once you’ve done this, click Continue.
