Troubleshooting when you encounter domain transfer problem

2018-08-10 - Router 53

If you encounter the following message when you try to do domain transfer,

... cannot be transferred to Route 53
Reason: Your current registrar is preventing the domain from being transferred. Confirm that the domain is unlocked. If so, contact your registrar for more information.

To transfer the domain to Route 53 please ensure the following:
Unlock the domain so it can be transferred.
Disable domain privacy for the domain so we can get your contact information.
Ensure the registrant contact for the domain has a valid email address.
Get an authorization code for the domain (Not required for certain TLDs).
If you have done the above already, please note that it may take some time for the changes to propagate.
