The .legal domain extension is newer to the domain world, having just been made available to the public in 2015. Often misconstrued, .legal is not the same as .law. While there are restrictions on anyone obtaining a .law domain, this is not the case for .legal. Anyone can have a .legal domain, but keep in mind, .legal is primarily used by websites focused on information or services related to the law.
From a first glance, .legal domain extensions tells your audience who you are and what you do. .Legal domains are credible and plausible, giving your site an instant affiliation with a legal entity, therefore making users trust your content. .Legal domains are also less common, making them attention-grabbing, and adding a serious boost to your professional legal brand. The only downside to a .legal domain is the price. This domain is one of the more expensive domains to obtain, but worth the credibility in the long-run.

Once the order is submitted to us and the EPP code is validated an email will be dispatched to the administrative WHOIS contact with a link that must be clicked in order to continue with the transfer. After this link is clicked the old registrar has five (5) days to release the domain to us.
While many registrars will either approve the request automatically or email you an additional link to get them to approve the transfer immediately, some do not and you may have to wait the full five days for the transfer to complete.
On your My KnownHost panel page you'll be presented with a form to update the Registrant, Administrative, Technical, and Billing WHOIS contact info. If you have domain privacy enabled on your domain this information will not be public.
Per ICANN policy a domain cannot be transferred within 60 days of its registration or last transfer. This applies to domain registrations being transferred to us as well as away from us.
