    Why not ask Namesilo? I always see the Namesilo opt-in. Alternatively just use a registrar that doesn't support Fast-Transfer if it is such a concern :)

    Indeed, Since it domain+account specific setting (fast transfer = enabled would be forever, at least without registrar change), it should be possible to 1) open 2nd afternic account 2) add domain in question to the 2nd account. Not a convinient way, but may be faster (vs. composing emails with uncertain outcome).

    Who knows, he maybe already doing this. In any case, with such a large company, an outcome of the CEO change would depend on his team. New CEO should almost instantly mean a new team of high-level staff. Actually one should not want (or expect) the CEO to participate in blogs or forums (so he unlikely reading this thread) or to personally deal with each and every customer... not his job. Who will form his team and how will they operate the company - this is the question...

    The new Doman Manager would be perfect and make selling very easy IF it worked. BUT, after several weeks of trying, I have given up listing domains from Domain Manager. Upon suggestion from a support guy, I have resorted to the more stable way of listing domains in Afternic, then go back to Godaddy and set the DNS to ns3.afternic.com and ns4.afternic.com to use the Godaddy/Afternic lander.

    For fast transfer to work you have to enable at registrar level a permission called
    Yes you see an opt-in email when you list a domain, but it seems not when you re-list it. And yet Fast Transfer gets enabled on the re-listed domain.

    Valid point about asking NS, but if you ask Namesilo they tell you you can only disable it at Afternic.
    Here is why:
    https://www.namesilo.com/Support/Change-of-Registrant
    At some registrars, for example Internet.bs, you have to actively and probably globally enable the Designated Agent status for your account, which is always necessary before any Fast Transfer is possible. So if you then globally disable it at that registrar, Fast Transfer would be disabled for all domains there.

    But at Namesilo you cannot disable Designated Agent status and you cannot disable FastTransfer on a per domain basis. How this works at each registrar is a matter for investigation, as to whether you can, after activating Fast Transfer for a domain or domains, turn that off globally or on a per domain basis at that registrar.

    More issues thinking of this morning.

    1) you have to disable "Domain by proxy to transfer" Why? This is not required at namesilo.com and others.
    2) the error with paying for domains, mentioned in another thread created this morning.
    3) the random times when no one can log in and the other random times when you can't even see your domains in your domain manager.
    4) Afternic/Godaddy and how they pay so late - they receive money immediately and transfer domain immediately. No reason they can't pay within 48.

    Joe, are you able to get GoDaddy Account push bug fixed? If we ever push in bulk, eg 20 names to our other GoDaddy account without copying over the existing whois info, the receiving GoDaddy account cannot click bulk accept, it always fails. That means we must manually type in 20 names contact info (there is no way to use default profile).

    A frustrating bug, been there for a long time, account manger couldn't get GoDaddy technical team to fix yet...

    All your help appreciated, thank you in advance.

    This is where Godaddy fails... the new Domain Manager view is how old? Three/Four months? Maybe more? This problem has been there since they rolled out this new platform.

    It is absolutely ridiculous that a large company like godaddy can't fix this right away.

    Again, most people have godaddy account, solely because of the Expired Auctions. That's it!

    There is a ticket for it with the developers. It looks like it is being worked on. I will bring it up with them today as I have a meeting with that team later on.

    Thank you, could you reply when you have a date fix will be available please :)
    Also, any news on the other bugs? eg change one domain in a profile, Godaddy emails a lot of bulk emails about every other domain also in the same profile.

    Or the bug where add to a profile, and the nameservers are not updated to the ones in the profile. Or the one where forwarding doesn't work, because nameservers are set (even though forwarding set up page says it will amended the nameservers), need to manually change the nameservers back to Godady, wait up to 2 days for that nameserver change to come through via email, and then set the forwarding again....

    Last week I bought a domain on Afternic. Everything good, the domain is in my Godaddy account since then.

    Two hours ago I received two E-Mails by [email protected] which I already had last week: "[domain] is now yours" and "[domain] Immediate Action Required: Provide Account Details".

    No problem for me but it could lead to a bigger bug @Joe Styler .

    Hi everyone,
    I am having trouble with Afternic and I am hoping someone knows the fix. I listed a bunch of domains there but when I got PART of the verification email from Godaddy for fast transfer, it gave me some kind of error. My domains don't show as fast transfer on Afternic. What should I do? I apologize if this has been asked 5 billion times before... I couldn't find the answer. Thanks in advance for your time.
