Transferring Domain Names in Bulk


As per ICANN's new domain transfer guidelines, effective 25th May 2018, all domain transfers will not require Form of Approval (FoA). The Transfer Authorization process will not require the Registrant Contact's approval via e-mail.

Using the Bulk Transfer interface in your Control Panel, you may place a transfer request for multiple domain names simultaneously.

Alternatively, if all the domain names are owned by the same Registrant, you may choose to send the Transfer FAX in a single letter, authorizing the Transfer for all the names.

    • Contact Information: Select the appropriate Registrant, Administrative, Technical and Billing Contacts from the drop-down lists.

      Contacts Archival 


      Unused Contacts (except Default Contacts) that were created more than six months ago are archived. Archived Contacts will not appear in the List of Contacts, would not be searchable and will not be available for selection during bulk domain name transfer.

Bulk Actions Limit and Domain (Transfer) Secret Change 

  • At any point of time, you can add upto 2 Bulk Actions. This implies that you would not be able to add another Bulk Transfer / Renewal / Name Servers Modification / Contacts Modification / Theft Protection / Privacy Protection Action, if 2 Bulk Actions are already running. You will encounter the below error message in case you try to do so:


    You already have the maximum allowed number of Bulk Operations running. Please wait for at least one to complete before starting another.

  • You will be able to add another Bulk Action once one of the earlier actions has been processed completely.

  • Once a domain name having an associated Domain (Transfer) Secret is Transferred under BigRock from another Registrar, the system would set a new Domain (Transfer) Secret for such a domain name. This process is implemented from a security perspective.
