Domain registration and transferring: ES

In this article, we will give you an overview of the requirements for transferring or registering an .ES domain at HostPapa. 

How to register a domain name with HostPapa

.ES is an open registry. Any individual or legal person with interests in or links to Spain has the right to get the domain. You don’t need to be a resident or business operator in Spain to register an .ES domain. 

To check prices or register one of these domains, visit our domain page or purchase directly from your HostPapa Dashboard by clicking on My Domains, then Register New Domain to open a Secure Order Form. 


How to transfer a domain name to HostPapa

Before you request to transfer your domain name to HostPapa, there are a few steps you should complete to ensure a smooth transfer: 

  1. When the transfer request is submitted, the request will be sent to the registry, RED.ES.The registry will then send an email to the administrative contact asking for confirmation of the transfer. 
  2. If the confirmation is not received within 10 days of the initial request, the transfer will be cancelled. We will contact you to let you know.


Please ensure enough time to initiate the domain transfer before its expiration/renewal date. Transfers can take up to seven days to complete. To prevent your domain from becoming non-functional during the transfer, we recommend making this request at least two weeks before your domain’s expiry date.
