What happens after I buy a name from BrandBucket?
Once payment has been received and verified, we start the domain transfer process. The transfer can take anywhere between 1-8 days, depending on the registrar where the domain is currently registered and the registrar we're sending it to. Typically if you choose to use the same registrar where the domain currently resides, the transfer is the quickest since the domain only changes accounts. If you choose a different registrar, there is an ICANN-mandated waiting period of 5-7 days that starts after the current owner has approved the transfer.
Our supported registrars are:
- Network Solutions
- Amazon Route 53
- 123 Reg
Since BrandBucket is an open marketplace and the domains are owned by several different people, the transfer time can be affected depending on the response time of the seller. We do our best to speed the transfer process by training our escrow team to facilitate this communication and to eliminate common roadblocks.
