Of courseI believe according to registrar policy, expired domains can and should be transferable. I just experienced this with namesilo few weeks ago, so digged into rules and if you have AUTH code and domains are unlocked prior to expiration, they should be transferable. I told that to Namesilo, after my transfer was rejected and all went through after.
I guess they are using the same tactics on people owing 1 or 2 developed company domains and for domain investors. This may work with uneducated end users, but not with domain investors.
Hi Godaddy. Please, could you clarify to all NamePros community if, like @omelet is saying, you require to renew a recently expired domain name (in the 30 days period just after its expiration date), in order to transfer it to another registrar?
Tell them to stop playing games and give the codes. Expired domains get moved all the time.See what the Godaddy customer care said:
“To better help you, I just checked with the account for you. I see the domains you are provided are expired and they has to be renewed now inorder to transfer away. Does that work for you?”
“To be on same page I can help you initiate the transfer, but unfortunately if there are not active the transfer would not be successful”
“I will make it more clear to you, I see the domains are expired on October 24 2023, and to make sure the transfer is successful the domains are to be active. Hope you understand.”
“I will make it more clear for you, as per the transfer guidelines the expired domain could not be transferred away.”
“However if you would have came before the expiry I would have happily help you with the transfer. Still you can renew the domains, I can help you with the transfer right away. Does that sound good?”
“Then Unfortunately the transfer could not be possible. Hope you understand.”
Hey don't just solve my problem. I want you to solve this systematically and I want no others facing the same problems. Can you promise?
