The transfer process performs based on the EPP code. The registrant should request the code from the losing registrar and provide the gaining one.
As soon as both losing registrar and administrative contact approve the transfer, it will be approved. If one of two denies, the transfer will be denied.
If no response is received from the losing registrar in one week, it is assumed approved. If no response is received from the administrative contact in the same week, the transfer will be refused.
As soon as the process is finalized either by explicit approval/refusal or by timeout, all three parties will be informed via letter.
Please note! In order to transfer a domain name, the domain must be active. If the domain is locked, inactive or in the process of being deleted or redeemed, then it doesn’t comply with transferring requirements.
A domain must also have been registered for more than 60 days before you are allowed to transfer registrar.
The .ac registry is based in the UK and has servers in the US, Amsterdam, Japan, and Australia.
A registry operator, sometimes called a network information center (NIC) maintains all administrative data of the domain and generates a zone file which contains the addresses of the nameservers for each domain. Each registry is an organization that manages the registration of domain names within the domains for which it is responsible, controls the policies of domain name allocation, and technically operates its domain. It may also fulfill the function of a domain name registrar or may delegate that function to other entities.
