« Back to Domain Name Dictionary | Definition of Push

When a domain name is transferred from one account to another account at the same registrar, it is called a “push.”

It may be referred to differently at different registrars. For example, at GoDaddy a push is called an account change.

A push can be advantageous since a change in Whois information (e.g., updating account information prior to a transfer, or a purchase of the domain name at auction) can often trigger a 60-day domain name transfer lock.
