This demo assumes you have a domain name registered through namecheap.com and starts from their home page.

Domain name transfers must be initiated at the new registrars website, that is, the website for the registrar where you want your domain name transferred to.

However, you must first insure that your domain name is not being locked, or being prevented from transferring away from this registry.

Enter your USERNAME and PASSWORD in the boxes provided

Click LOG IN.

You are now logged into your account.

Click the VIEW link next to “Number of domains in your account,” to see a list of domains in your account.

Click the domain name for which you want to remove the registry lock.

Click the REGISTRY LOCK link on the left side of the screen.

Check the LOCK STATUS. If the registry is not locked, you can transfer the domain name out of this registry.

If the status is locked, selected the RELEASE THE REGISTRAR LOCK option, then click SAVE CHANGES.

That’s it! The lock has been removed from the domain name so it may be transferred to another registry.

You must now go to the domain name site you wish to transfer to and initiate a TRANSFER REQUEST.

You now know how to unlock of domain names, thus enabling you to transfer them away from namecheap.com
