Frequently asked questions about domain names

How long will it take to complete the transfer of my domain name?

The duration of a transfer depends on the extension of your domain name. With the most commonly used extensions, such as .be or .com, the transfer can be completed very quickly. This can take from a few hours to a few days.

For a .be domain, DNS Belgium will send you an e-mail after your order to confirm the transfer. After this confirmation, the transfer will be completed within 24 hours.

In any case, we make sure that everything keeps running smoothly during the transfer. Do you really want to be sure that everything will be all right? Give us a heads-up so that we can prepare the transfer even more effectively.

You can find the authorisation code (also known as transfer code) from your current domain name provider. There is a good chance that you can request this code via its control panel. If this is not possible, you will need to contact the provider to obtain your code.

Have you finally obtained the code? Then hurry up and transfer your domain name, as the code is only valid for a few days.

Do you want to transfer a .be domain? Then request your transfer code directly via up your domain there and request the corresponding code.

Thanks to the authorisation code (or transfer code), nobody but you can transfer your domain name. Because it is a code that confirms that you are its owner. So, by providing us with this code, we can be 100% sure that you are the owner. Without this code, we simply cannot complete the transfer.

Normally, during a transfer, everything keeps running smoothly. We temporarily take over the DNS settings we can find. You can quickly change these DNS settings afterwards via our control panel.

Be careful though, because sometimes we cannot find all the DNS records you have set. Do you want to make sure there will be no problems? If so, please contact us beforehand so that we can ensure a flawless transfer.

In most cases, your mailboxes and e-mail addresses will stop working. You will have to recreate the e-mail addresses and mailboxes with Combell. As soon as this is done, you will be able to receive e-mails again.

Good to know: Combell offers you a free mailbox and as many e-mail addresses as you want!

Do you have a Microsoft 365 mailbox? In that case, you just have to make sure that all DNS settings are set correctly with Combell to make everything work again.
Do you have any questions about the impact of your transfer on your mailboxes? Feel free to contact us.

As long as a registry lock is enabled on your domain name, you cannot transfer it. It provides additional protection to ensure that a domain name does not fall into the wrong hands.
You can usually disable a registry lock via your domain name provider's control panel. You will need to do that anyway if you want to transfer your domain name.

No, you can transfer your domain name to another provider at any time.

If you wait until your domain name expires to transfer it, you may face temporary unavailability or additional charges from your current provider.

How much the transfer of your domain name costs depends on its extension. To find out how much the transfer costs, look up your domain in our finder. We will immediately show you how much the transfer will cost and whether there are any additional costs.

Look up your domain name

To take over someone else's domain name, you must first have an agreement with its current owner. This person may sometimes ask you to pay a fee to become the new owner of the domain in question. This fee has nothing to do with the registration fee that you will have to pay to a domain name provider such as Combell.

Once you have reached that agreement, you need to get an authorisation code (also known as 'transfer code') from the owner. This code will allow you to register the domain name with Combell or any other domain name provider. Once this is done, you will become the new owner of the domain.

Do you need to find the name of the owner of a certain domain? You can do that using a whois service such as or Although this has become a lot more complicated since the GDPR came into force, because that is when many owners decided to hide their identity from the public.
