Hello everybody,
Today, I was amazed when I transferred my .com domain from names.co.uk (if the name is not allowed here, I am deeply sorry).

When I registered, I did not read about the transfer policy because I have experienced almost 6 to 7 international companies that never ask to leave the company.

Now I want to know from all of you kindly share your experience if you know about any company that does this kindly comment, please.

also guide me is it against ICAAN's policy or not?

i send support ticket yesterday and ask why are you asking for fee they replied this

Hi,

Thank you for getting in touch with us regarding transferring your domain away from us.

Most registries .ie ICANN, and the .com registry require an administration fee to transfer domains between registrars. i.e. from Namesco to GoDaddy. This fee is required by the registry to activate this transfer, and the payment we take is passed to the registry.

Before doing this, it may be worth considering whether that is really what you want to do. By transferring the domain to another provider, you will be giving them administrative control of the domain, and all future renewals of the domain will be handled by them. You will no longer be using your Names.co.uk Control Panel to manage this domain, and we will no longer be able to assist with any domain-related queries.

If you wish to proceed, then you can start the process in the "Domain Transfers" section of your Names.co.uk Control Panel.

The actual transfer process itself varies depending on which extension your domain has. For example, the .co.Uk domain requires you to provide the "IPS Tag" of your chosen provider before you can commence the transfer process, and a .com domain transfer will send you an "Authorization Code" by email which you will then need to give to your new provider.

Only for fee is not fair. I mean it shouldn't cost to move out. Got to be careful where we put domains. Usually, best to stick to the top registers. And, I don't think registry charges fee to move from one register to another like they say. Also, yeah no one else seems to charge to move out, the admin fee is a sham. I hear your register for that domain is one of the top in the industry but they should have made it more clear before registering that fee to move out.
