Unless HostMonster rejects your transfer, the transfer will auto-complete at the registry after 5 calendar days. There are specific rules for when a registrar may reject a transfer and some registrars do not adhere to those rules. If for any reason HostMonster rejects the transfer, please contact us and we will be happy to investigate and advise further.
