Gifting a Domain Name
Passing ownership of a domain name to a friend.

How do I go about gifting the ownership of a domain name to a friend. Is there a cost involved?

In theory, you can simply change all the contact details. However, you should probably contact the registrar since I presume you (as the original registrant) would remain liable in the event of a legal dispute (until domain registration is renewed by someone else anyway).

Be sure to remove your credit-card details from any auto-renewal facility.

Thanks for that, Kaled. All sounds logical.

In some domain names, for example TLD .EU, there is a charge for changing the name an address of the domain owner on your registrar.

As far as I know this is the only TLD where this happens, but there may be more as I do not own every single extension out there.
