What are the requirements for registrar transfer?

To transfer your domain to Host Metro, these conditions must be met:
1) Your domain name has been registered for at least 60 days.
2) The domain name is not involved in a domain dispute.
3) The domain's status is not: locked, pending deletion, pending renewal or expired.  
If the domain is about to expire, you need to renew your domain with your current registrar before a registrar transfer can occur.
If the domain expires, it becomes ineligible to transfer for 60 days.
4) The e-mail address on file for the domain name is a valid and working.
If you do not have access to this e-mail address, contact your current registrar for information on changing it.
If you have Domain WHOIS Privacy enabled, disable it. Contact the current registrar to do this.
5) Obtain an authorization code from your current registrar.

You do not need to transfer your domain registration to Host Metro in order to host that domain with us.
