Are you transferring a domain after it has been expired? Domain transferring does not happen in an instant. Small time registrars take a longer time to respond or help in transferring a domain from them. They prefer not to assist you at all and treat you as an long time enemy. You end up with innumerable calls and email exchange finally with no fruitful result.
Recently, I did a domain transfer from ManasHosting to Godaddy. First of all it took me a month to reach a person who was aware of what I was speaking and what a domain transfer is all about. After this, he assured me that he would assist me in the transfer. But I finally found that the domain control access itself has been denied. I had to make repeated calls again to find out the Transaction ID and Security Code that was sent by Godaddy. I finally thought all this is over.
But that was not the case. I still needed an Authorization Code. Where do I get this authorization code? I had to again call up the registrant and ask for this. When I was finally able to get this, I ended up in distress to find out a new message poping out of the control panel.
“Pending Current Registrar Approval” “Accept transfer at current registrar”
What was this now? It has been like this for the last 4 days. How long should I wait? Is it not that easy as accepting the transfer clicking on a button? Why does it take so long? When I wrote to GoDaddy they said it would take four days. Does it mean four working days?
