  1. Ensure a valid email address for the administrative contact (admin) of your .ac domain name in the Whois database. Both registrars use this email address to send you important information about the transfer. If it is invalid, contact your current registrar to update it.
  2. Unlock your .ac cpr144449003101 domain name at your current registrar.
