What Is IRTP?
IRTP Stands for Inter-Registrar Transfer Policy adopted in 2004.
IRTP is nothing but a set of rules or Procedure for Domain Name Holders to transfer there domains between registrars. If we say in lay man term then we can simply say “Rules or Process to transfer a domain”
Basic Process to transfer a domain from current registrar to us :
Steps to be done on Current Registrar
- Unlock the domain name.
- Get an authorization code / EPP code / transfer key from your current registrar.
- Disable Protected or Private registration(Privacy Protection): If the domain has Protected Registration or Private Registration, you’ll need to cancel it.
- Disable Theft Protection if Enabled.
- Verify contact information: Confirm that the administrator’s contact information for the domain is correct. All emails regarding the transfer will go to the administrator’s email.

Rule has been revised by ICANN in IRTP in 2016 to curb domain hijacking and fraudulent transfer. According to this, if customer update registrant’s name, address or organisation or Email then Domain Transfer Lock Is Triggered which prevents customer from transferring for 60 days(there is an option to disable the transfer Lock) .
