To transfer a .nz domain name you will need your UDAI, which you can obtain from your current host. A UDAI is your access code to manage your Domain. You can then go to our Transfer Domain page and enter the Domain and UDAI to transfer.

For all other names you will need to login/register. When you apply to transfer a domain name you will receive an email notification from the current host asking you to authorise or decline the transfer.

How do I transfer a domain name to another host?

For .nz names you will need to generate the UDAI from your domain name management console and use it at your next host to transfer the name to them. For all other names ask the new host what their procedure is to transfer the name to them.
