How To Transfer Your Domain Away from FASO


IMPORTANT - Update Contact Info

When you transfer your domain away from FASO to another registrar (such as GoDaddy), be sure to update all administrative info on the domain account once the transfer is complete. 

Remove our info and enter your personal info to prevent future issues.

Your domain is subject to cancellation by ICANN if you fail to update the Contact Info on your domain once it has been transferred away.


IMPORTANT - Email Account on the Domain

If you have an email account attached to the domain, your email account will be affected!

Your FASO domain email account will stop working when you cancel your account.

Your domain email account messages and contacts will not be saved or transferred over to your new provider.

You will need to make provisions with your new provider prior to the domain transfer for how to handle moving email account content.
