Frequently Asked Questions

What is a UDAI?

UDAI is an acronym for Unique Domain Authorisation ID and is your access code for managing your domains.

How do I transfer a domain name to Affordable Domains?

Our domain transfer service begins by entering the domain into the field above. There are a couple of steps that you must take at your current registrar: unlock the domain and acquire the transfer authorization code. For most domain transfers, that is where your work ends, and we take care of the rest! Of course, if we do require anything further from you, we'll be in touch.

I received an error message when trying to transfer my domain?

You cannot internally transfer your domain name until 5 days after registration/recent transfer. This is an anti-fraud measure that we cannot bypass.

Do I need to wait till my domain name is about to expire before transferring?

No, we encourage that you transfer your domain name well before expiry to ensure you don’t run into complications.

Can I transfer my newly registered domain name to Affordable Domains?

Registry regulations prohibit the transfer of domain names that have been registered within the last 60 Days. Please wait for 60 days from the date of registration before applying for a transfer of such domain names.

How can I pay for domain transfer or renew?

When transferring or renewing a domain name you may pay by your Credit Card, Paypal or Bank Transfer.

How long does an outgoing transfer take?

This largely depends on how quickly your current domain registrar responds to our requests and actions relative to the process. Given all the variables involved, the best estimate to complete the process is roughly 5-7 days, give or take, more or less, and more often than not. Rest assured, we do everything within our power to ensure a quick domain transfer process and we will always reach out to you in the event there is anything you can do to assist.

How do I cancel a Domain name?

You can either let the Domain name expire or turn of the auto renew, or contact us to cancel the Domain.

What happens if my domain name registration expires?

Domain names that are no longer in use with registration that has been allowed to lapse are considered expired. This period extends for 30 days, during which you can renew your registration if you wish. If you have not renewed within these 30 days, there is a further 30-day period known as the redemption period during which you can recover the domain for a fee. Five to seven days after the redemption period has ended, the domain name will be released as available for anyone else to register.
