This article will walk you through the process of transferring a domain name purchased from Rebrandly.
You're free to transfer your custom domains at any time, but if you do so, all of the branded links associated with the domain will be deleted. If you transfer a domain away from Rebrandly but decide you'd like to add it back in the future, you'll need to contact our support team to recover your old links.
To transfer a domain, start the transfer procedure in your preferred domain provider's dashboard. They will ask you for a "transfer code". To get a transfer code from Rebrandly, send a request to domains [at] rebrandly.com
IMPORTANT: For security reasons, you must request the transfer code from the same email address you use to log in to your Rebrandly account.
Please do not purchase domains from Rebrandly with the intention of using them to host main websites. If this is your goal, there are plenty of great companies that can help you much better than we can. We are set up to register domains specifically for custom URL shortening purposes.
Once registered, it can take several days before you will be able to transfer a domain from one domain provider to another. This time varies from TLD to TLD, so pay attention to the fact that once a domain has been registered with Rebrandly you may not be able to immediately move it to another domain provider.
Some domains come with a 60-day Change of Registrant lock, so we advise you to investigate the rules of the specific TLD you have chosen to transfer before initiating this process.
