Transferring Away from Tucows To LuckyRegister

To Transfer Away From Tucows

NOTE: Hover is a domain name registrar division of Tucows.

1. Verify that Your Domain Name is Transferable

To make sure your domain name can be transferred, confirm that:

  • The domain name has been registered for at least 60 days, and has been with Tucows for at least 60 days.
  • The domain name contact information hasn’t been changed within 60 days.

NOTE: Some registrars prevent domain names from transferring away if the contact information associated with a domain was updated within 60 days.

2. Confirm Administrative Contact Information

The administrative contact (admin) is one of the four contacts listed in the Whois database for a registered domain. The contact information is defined by the registrant. As part of the domain transfer process, our system will send a transfer-approval e-mail message to the domain’s administrative contact listed in the Whois database. The e-mail message contains the Transaction ID and Security Code that enable the administrative contact to approve the transfer.

NOTE: If your domain name has private registration, a service that hides your personal information from the public, you cannot verify your admin email address in the Whois database. You must contact your current registrar to cancel the private registration, and then you can update the email address, if necessary.

To update this contacts at Tucows

  1. Log on to your domain name at https://manage.opensrs.net.
  2. Click Manage Domain.
  3. Update your Administrative contact email address,and then click Save.

3. Obtain the Authorization Code

Get an authorization code (also known as an EPP code or transfer key) from your current registrar, if required. Some domain name extensions, primarily country-code top-level domain names (ccTLDs), do not require an authorization code.

To obtain the authorization code from Tucows

  1. Log on to your domain name at https://manage.opensrs.net.
  2. Click Manage Domain.
  3. You’ll find the authorization code is in the Domain Extras section.

4. Unlock Your Domain Name

If Domain Locking is enabled for your domain, you must contact your Tucows reseller to have the lock removed. The lock must be removed and the registry status verified as “Active” before you can request a domain transfer.

NOTE: It may take 24 hours before our system identifies and recognizes the domain status change.

To unlock your domain name

  1. Contact Tucows technical support.
  2. Ask them to unlock the domain name.

5. Purchase a Domain Name Transfer

Purchase a domain name transfer from our website. If the extension you want to transfer is not listed, you cannot transfer the domain name to us.

When you purchase the transfer, select one of the following nameserver options:

  • Keep the existing nameservers… — If you have a hosted website for your domain name (with us or another company), select this option to ensure that your site does not go down during the transfer.
  • Change … to park nameservers — If you have email with us for the domain name, are using our Off-site DNS, or created a Premium DNS transfer template prior to the transfer, select this option. For more information, see Managing Domain Names with Off-site DNS and Creating Transfer Templates in Premium DNS.

About Automatic Renewal and Manual Renewal

The process we, the registrar, follow for expired domain names depends on your domain name extensions and their renewal settings. Prior to expiration, we send multiple emails to remind you to renew your domain names.

If you set your domain names to automatically renew, we attempt to renew the registrations for you the day after expiration. If we are unable to bill you, we park your expired domain names after 5 days and notify you via email again.

If you set your domain names to manually renew and you let your domain names expire, we notify you via email again the day after expiration. We park your expired domain names after 5 days.

For expired .com, .net, .org, .info, .biz, .us, .ws, .name, .cc, .mobi, .me, or .tv domain name registrations, we hold your domain name for approximately 42 days before canceling it. Domain name renewal during this period is subject to applicable renewal and redemption fees. For more information, see What happens after domain names expire? and Recovering Expired Domain Names.

the more useful content you have, the greater the chances someone else will find that content valuable to their readers and link to it.

Backlinks — Links to your page from other sites on the Internet are called backlinks. Search engines use links to indicate general popularity. Search engines take into account where the link is coming from, which page it’s pointing to, and what the actual text of the link says.

Link Bait — Content that is posted to a web site with a controversial or inflammatory title or content, that is intended only to draw links and traffic. Most of the time this is used as a derogatory term for content that has no value except to get people angry or excited enough to link to or visit the content.

Link Farm — This is another black hat SEO technique. It involves setting up multiple sites whose main purpose is to contain links to other sites. This technique tries to take advantage of the relative importance search engines place on links. Changes to search engine algorithms have been made to detect and devalue these sort of links, rendering them useless from a ranking perspective.

The best way to get other sites to create high-quality, relevant links to yours is to create unique, relevant content that can naturally gain popularity in the Internet community. Creating good content pays off: Links are usually editorial votes given by choice, and the more useful content you have, the greater the chances someone else will find that content valuable to their readers and link to it.

Password and basic security precautions

NOTE: No password is 100% secure. You still must take basic security precautions such as not sharing your password with others, changing it frequently and changing it immediately if you believe it may have been compromised.

A password is your first and last line of defense in computer security. Typically people choose bad passwords because they are easy to remember. However, you wouldn’t leave the door to your home unlocked because it is too much of a hassle to unlock it before you open the door, would you? A weak password is the same thing.

Using words that appear in a dictionary, in any language, make cracking your password that much easier. Adding numbers to dictionary words doesn’t increase the password’s strength at all if it is based on a dictionary word. Even with character replacements like capital letters and non-alphanumeric symbols, you’re not getting a stronger password.

A true strong password should consist of 8 or more characters and be part of a “passphrase”. A passphrase consists of a phrase that has special meaning to you, therefore making it easier to remember. For example:

Mickey Mouse for President. It would be awesome!

One simple approach to create a better password is to take the first letter of each word in your passphrase, giving you:

mmfpiwba

That looks seemingly random, and it’s a fairly hard password to crack. But why not make it harder by using the punctuation from the sentence?

mmfp.iwba!

Now that is a much harder password to crack. Why stop there, though? Let’s make it even stronger by capitalizing some letters and adding numbers.

MM4P.Iwba!

Now you have truly difficult password to crack; but is still fairly easy to remember. To make it even stronger, you can salt it with non-alphanumeric character replacements for greater difficulty. For example, replacing an “a” with a “@” leaving you with:

MM4P.Iwb@!

NOTE: Our shared hosting accounts do not allow the following symbols to be used in the password (second symbol is a space):

? ^'”:\&><~;`*)(_-=+|[]{}.,/

The following symbols are acceptable:

!@#%$

Do’s and Do Not’s of Password Security:

Do:

  • Combine letters, symbols, and numbers that are easy for you to remember and hard for someone else to guess.
  • Create pronounceable passwords (even if they are not words) that are easier to remember, reducing the temptation to write down your password.
  • Try using the initial letters of a phrase you love, especially if a number or special character is included.
  • Take two familiar things, and then wrap them around a number or special character. Alternatively, change the spelling to include a special character.

Do not:

  • Use personal information such as derivatives of your user ID, names of family members, maiden names, cars, license plates, telephone numbers, pets, birthdays, social security numbers, addresses, or hobbies.
  • Use any word in any language spelled forward or backward.
  • Tie passwords to the month. For example, don’t use “Mayday” in May.
  • Create new passwords that are substantially similar to ones you’ve previously used.
