Transfer Domains

Partner API v2 Deprecation

Partner API v2 was deprecated on Feb 12, 2024. Please check the v3 specification for integration guides.

The Domain Actions API (Legacy) offers the functionality to generate a list of transactions that needs to be performed to transfer a domain name without having to form them on the client.

Step 1: Retrieve Your Reseller ID and Secret API Token

To access your ResellerID and Secret API Token, you must navigate to your Sandbox or Production Partner dashboard. The ResellerID is used to identify the requests as coming from a Partner, while the Secret API Token is used for authentication to ensure that only authorized Partners can access the API.

Step 2: Prepare Request Body

When making a domain action request, the body must contain information about your domain action in JSON format with the following structure:

    "action": "Transfer",
    "parameters": {
        "to": string, // address to receive the domain
        "resetRecords": boolean // whether to reset the domain records
    "domain": string, // domain name you are transferring
    "gasCompensationPolicy": string // gas compensation policy
  • action : (string) The domain action you want to perform. To transfer domains, the value should be "Transfer" .
  • parameters : A key-value dictionary with additional information about the action:
    • to : (string) The wallet address where the domain name should be transferred to.
    • resetRecords : (boolean) Setting this value to true will reset the domain's records before transferring, while false will keep the records after the transfer.
  • domain : (string) The domain name you want to transfer.
  • gasCompensationPolicy : (string) The gas compensation policy that should be used for the domain action.

Step 3: Prepare Authorization Headers

The Partner API uses bearer tokens to authorize requests with the Secret API Token from your Partner credentials.

Field Name Value
Security Scheme Type HTTP
HTTP Authorization Scheme bearer
Bearer Format a token provided by Unstoppable Domains

Step 4: Use the Create Domain Action Request Endpoint

Send a POST request to the Create Domain Action Request endpoint. To make a successful request, you must include the request body and authorization headers you have prepared, which should contain information about the domain action you want to perform.

Sandbox Environment:


Production Environment:


The PARTNER_RESELLERID path parameter is the same one you retrieved from your partner account earlier.


Here is an example of a request that you can use to create a domain action request to transfer a domain with the following parameters:

Parameter Value
Domain Action Transfer
Domain reseller-test-udtesting-602716235250.crypto

Reset Records Yes
Gas Compensation Policy CompensateFree

The id field in the API response is the domain action ID and the txs field contains the list of transactions that needs to be performed to transfer the reseller-test-udtesting-602716235250.crypto domain to 0x3EAA674612f79A97ad451fCF860A51Ad41aC2C19.


You have successfully created the domain action request to transfer a domain with the Domain Actions API. Now that the domain action is created, you can sign the transaction.
