    I moved out most right after 60 days. No issue for me. However... They actually did start trying to charge you for transfers (within the year) since earlier this year.

    They will provide the Auth code when you request it and try to charge you after you actually transferred out. As per ICANN rules, they cannot deny you to transfer away, even if you have an outstanding balance.

    If you have a payment method on file they cannot charge... You do the math. Can't advise anyone to do something that might be considered unethical....

    On the other hand... They are obfuscating a lot of the fine print ignoring some Dutch advertising laws, although debatable, I'm not a lawyer, they're walking a very thin line.

    Anyone running into issues, file a formal complaint with ICANN and SIDN.

    Where can you check for payment details? I've found only some info at administration/payment details but for sure they must have some other payment info on file from when I've bought the domains.

    I'm not sure. I've been using them for years just to take advantage of some promos. Used to transfer out at first opportunity. I always use direct bank payments for registrars located here to avoid payment fees.

    If you used a creditcard they probably have that on file.

    I also registered some names there and planning to move out..Before registering,i had the same question in mind about charging a fee by them,but some earlier users confimed that there is no fee..We understand they gave us promo,but it is a matter of their company promotion investment deals..Charging a fee for transferring out is not good a business model..

    The lesson is do not register names with any registars who are not providing instant Auth Codes inside the domain manager..sending email to get the auth codes is at the mercy of registar eventhough we are the owner of that domain.

    Namecheap,Dynadot,Epik,Godaddy etc all giving instant auth codes..thats the sign of business trust..

    I got this today


    Expiration date: 04-08-2021
    Amount: € 20.00
    Status: Check status
    Dear Govind Kumar,

    Hereby you will receive a summons for xxxxxx.com. The payment term for our invoices is 14 days (Art. 3.5-6 General Terms and Conditions mijndomein.nl) and has now passed for some time.

    As announced in the reminder, we have blocked your package(s) today. Moving or transferring the domain is not possible until the invoice and the associated collection costs have been paid.

    In the absence of full payment of 20.00 before 04-08-2021 (within 15 days after receipt of this e-mail), we will pass on your details to our collection agency, the domain name will then expire. We are entitled to do so on the basis of Article 6:96 of the Dutch Civil Code and the Decree on compensation for extrajudicial collection costs. The costs for this procedure are 15% of the total invoice, with a minimum of €40.

    Prevent transfer to the collection agency and pay today via the payment button below.

    Did you managed to transfer away or they have locked the domains until the payment is done? Did you tried to contact ICANN regarding the charge for transfer away?

    Do you have other domains with them, if you have, they have locked them until you pay?

    A
    At that time they didn't charge anything. I did a test in February and transferred a domain out and they didn't charge me anything.

    So they charged you € 20.00 for only one domain? Or they added penalties?

    I don't think they can do anything now. Ensure it from others and then reply them with a "F*** off"

    Is it actually euro 5 or Euro 20 they will be charging for transfer out per domain?

    What will happen if we request all the domains in the acocunt (say 25) at a time to transfer out? They will allow one by one only and then take transfer out fee and then proceed next? Or we will be able to transfer out all 25 and then they send invoice of transfer out fee for 25 domains?

    Any ideas?

    It's 5 euros + VAT (at least for me). You will be able to transfer your domains out one by one and after each one, you will receive an invoice.
