What is a Domain Push?

A domain push transfers domain ownership between accounts within the same domain registrar. Instead of moving the domain to a different registrar, it remains with the current registrar, and ownership changes hands within their system.

How does a Domain Push work?

During a domain push, the current owner initiates the transfer process from their registrar account. They provide the recipient's account details (usually username or email associated with the recipient's registrar account), and the domain is transferred directly to the recipient's account within the same registrar's system. The domain retains its registration period and expiration date.

What are the benefits of a Domain Push vs. a Domain Transfer?

Domain pushes typically occur instantly or within a few hours since the domain remains within the same registrar's infrastructure. In contrast, domain transfers between different registrars may take several days due to verification processes and registrar coordination.

When choosing a domain push, there's no need to obtain authorization codes or unlock the domain, streamlining the transfer process.
