How To Transfer New gTLD Domains to namecheap.com

When I tried to transfer a .LINK domain from another registrar to namecheap.com, I got this error message that it was “Not Eligible for Transfer” even though I had checked to make sure that domain’s transfer lock was turned off (disabled).

Come to find out, when I contacted namecheap.com tech support, that:

The transfers of new TLDs are submitted only manually by our support team at the moment.
 So, even though the error message was not as helpful as it could’ve been, hopefully this blog post will save you a couple of frustrating minutes. Be sure to have “top up” your account with funds to cover the transfer costs, and to have these items ready, when you’re asked for them by live person chat support:
  • domain name(s) to transfer
  • auth code
  • username
  • support PIN
