Have a few domains to renew that I can't transfer. $13.99/each
Any coupon codes working?
What is preventing transfer?
Codes rarely work for renewal, and even then the best codes are 25% which is only a savings of $3.50
Transfer lock. Netfirms policy is you can't transfer even 1 day past expiry date.
$3.50 is good when I have a couple dozen to renew
Hope someone knows of one and posts about it within the next half hour.
This is how they get you with those cheap reg offers + highly inflated renewals.
Registrars should just invest the promo money into their brand and develop better and more convenient interfaces and features and charge fair reg/renewal prices to attract customers instead of bait and switch with a generic control panel.
Coincidence almost all of the most successful registrars have custom coding and average pricing?
Your information is incorrect, you just must contact support to transfer after expiry, not sure you have time though - what was exact day of expiry?
You at least should be able to move from NetFirms to Domain.com and renew there for $11.99
Pretty sure the evergreen codes do NOT work on renewals, 15SALE, SOCIAL
Well that's good to know, they don't state it anywhere. Half hour is 30th day.
Are the domains still showing in your control panel? Like can you unlock and request Auth Code? IF you can transfer, the best deal is LCN $6.19. If the only thing they will allow is for you to contact support and remove from NetFirms and "Add Existing" into Domain.com, then renewal is $11.49 (when last checked)
The time line is they MAY take your domains as early as day 30 - although longer is a risk if you wanna be safe - https://www.namepros.com/posts/6301758/
You should transfer out, transfer price at Netfirms even with discount code still high I think
I have just transfer out my name from Netfirms to Namecheap on Black Friday sale, no any lock as you said
Were they expired?
Of course buddy, only on Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale time of Namecheap - 2 weeks ago
I mean were the domains expired that you transferred?
@tomcarl - are they still showing in your control panel and can you unlock and request Auth Codes?
No, it was about 30 days remaining to the expiry day
You have to contact the support to unlock and request auth code within 30 days after domain name expired.
Did you manage to rescue your domains? @tomcarl
