TitleWhat does the domain transfer status mean?
Description

Domain transfer statuses can sometimes be confusing and obscure, for that reason we've created this list explaining some of the more common statuses that can occur. You can find the status of your transfer in your Admin Panel under Orders >  Pending Domain Transfers. For hosting orders you can find the statuses here and new registration statuses can be found here.

waiting registrant response -  An email has been sent to the registrant email address to confirm the transfer but the link has not been clicked yet, this may be due to an invalid email address so please check this here. If the email is invalid please get it updated with the current registrar before contacting support as we will have to close the transfer and get you to resubmit it.

request transfer notification sent - The transfer is in progress and we have notified the registry office to move the domain, this usually takes 48 hours, no further steps need to be taken during this period.
