How do I transfer my “.RW” domain name to another registrar ?


First, you, the domain name owner (registrant) has to identify the new (gaining) registrar you want to work with. The new (gaining) registrar, through an official requestfrom RICTA registry systems, issue a domain name transfer request to the old (losing) registrar. Once the old (losing) registrar agrees, the domain name is transferred.
