Your current contact information on the official Whois record must be up to date.  OnlineNic.com and your original registrar will contact you or your administrative contact by email sent to the current administrative email contact on record for the domain.  You or your administrative contact must then respond by email to the authorization request with in 72 hours of receipt in order for a successful transfer to occur.  It is extremely important that you respond within 72 hours to any authorization request you receive by email from your original registrar and OnlineNic.com

A registrar request requires approval and processing by your original registrar.  It is your responsibility under this agreement to monitor the status of your transfer request and to maintain communication with your original registrar and with OnlineNic.com to ensure that your request is successfully completed.  Please coordinate your domain transfer with your original registrar and closely monitor the domain’s status. 

1stHostWeb.com services are performed at the time you submit your order.  To help ensure a successful transfer request, you must verify that your contact information on the Whois record is accurate, your domain is in good standing with your original registrar and that you have allowed adequate time for your original registrar to receive and process your transfer request prior to the domain expiration date.
