Domain Transfers

Transferring your domain to Nettica begins here. After purchasing and confirming the transfer it can take up to 5 days to complete the transfer. Once a transfer completes, you will receive an email from us letting you know the transfer has completed successfully. When transfering domains, we do not automatically change the name servers to Nettica. This allows you to make a smooth transition.

Once you've received the transfer completion email, login to your Nettica account. You will see your domain in the summary.
