Route53Domains / Client / transfer_domain_to_another_aws_account



Transfers a domain from the current Amazon Web Services account to another Amazon Web Services account. Note the following:


When you transfer a domain from one Amazon Web Services account to another, Route 53 doesn’t transfer the hosted zone that is associated with the domain. DNS resolution isn’t affected if the domain and the hosted zone are owned by separate accounts, so transferring the hosted zone is optional. For information about transferring the hosted zone to another Amazon Web Services account, see Migrating a Hosted Zone to a Different Amazon Web Services Account in the Amazon Route 53 Developer Guide.

Use either ListOperations or GetOperationDetail to determine whether the operation succeeded. GetOperationDetail provides additional information, for example, Domain Transfer from Aws Account 111122223333 has been cancelled.
