How long does it take to transfer a domain?

It depends on where the domain is currently held, and where you want to transfer it to. Typically once you have paid, it will take 5 to 10 days.

The fastest way to transfer is to use the same domain registrar as the current owner. If you choose to transfer to a different registrar from where the domain is currently held, you will need to wait an additional 5 days to cover ICANN’s mandated waiting period.
