[ aws . route53domains ]

transfer-domain

Description

This operation transfers a domain from another registrar to Amazon Route 53. When the transfer is complete, the domain is registered either with Amazon Registrar (for .com, .net, and .org domains) or with our registrar associate, Gandi (for all other TLDs).

For transfer requirements, a detailed procedure, and information about viewing the status of a domain transfer, see Transferring Registration for a Domain to Amazon Route 53 in the Amazon Route 53 Developer Guide .

If the registrar for your domain is also the DNS service provider for the domain, we highly recommend that you consider transferring your DNS service to Amazon Route 53 or to another DNS service provider before you transfer your registration. Some registrars provide free DNS service when you purchase a domain registration. When you transfer the registration, the previous registrar will not renew your domain registration and could end your DNS service at any time.

Warning

If the registrar for your domain is also the DNS service provider for the domain and you don't transfer DNS service to another provider, your website, email, and the web applications associated with the domain might become unavailable.

If the transfer is successful, this method returns an operation ID that you can use to track the progress and completion of the action. If the transfer doesn't complete successfully, the domain registrant will be notified by email.

--privacy-protect-admin-contact | --no-privacy-protect-admin-contact (boolean)

Whether you want to conceal contact information from WHOIS queries. If you specify true , WHOIS ("who is") queries return contact information either for Amazon Registrar (for .com, .net, and .org domains) or for our registrar associate, Gandi (for all other TLDs). If you specify false , WHOIS queries return the information that you entered for the admin contact.

Default: true

--privacy-protect-registrant-contact | --no-privacy-protect-registrant-contact (boolean)

Whether you want to conceal contact information from WHOIS queries. If you specify true , WHOIS ("who is") queries return contact information either for Amazon Registrar (for .com, .net, and .org domains) or for our registrar associate, Gandi (for all other TLDs). If you specify false , WHOIS queries return the information that you entered for the registrant contact (domain owner).

Default: true

--privacy-protect-tech-contact | --no-privacy-protect-tech-contact (boolean)

Whether you want to conceal contact information from WHOIS queries. If you specify true , WHOIS ("who is") queries return contact information either for Amazon Registrar (for .com, .net, and .org domains) or for our registrar associate, Gandi (for all other TLDs). If you specify false , WHOIS queries return the information that you entered for the technical contact.

Default: true

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Output

OperationId -> (string)

Identifier for tracking the progress of the request. To use this ID to query the operation status, use get-operation-detail .
