    Dont misunderstand me but I love these two. Since yesterday I am totally bugged with them. So those with the patience to read this here is the story:
    Yesterday I received a decent offer for a domain on DAN for a domain registered at SAV. Since the domain is 10 days old SAV refuses to unlock the transfer. I offered to supply them with a copy of my passport & electric bill to prove my identity. Answer was still NO. I know its possible as I had this situation with greatdomains and after I had supplied them with the documents they released the domain.
    Now I wrote to DAN and they informed me ,Sorry chum we dont do business with SAV so even after the 50 days you will have to transfer the domain to another registrar that we sell it BUT the domain will be locked for another 60 days at the new registrar and only then....CATCH22

    Who needs TV. I have a real life comedy here. Any advice? Does DAN do business with Namecheap. Shall I move my domains there? I had already started to move my domains from Gandi & Godaddy to SAV because I find them too expensive but what now?

    DAN had a falling out with SAV. Apparently, SAV are scummy. There was a post about that here.

    I think there are no other registrars blacklisted by DAN.

    Sav supports Afternic fast transfer...
    But this is only applicable once 60 days passed...so much for "fast transfer"

    And yesterday I saw a post by @Busyfather_dot_com that Sav 2FA is blocking Afternic for transfer of the name even the name is older than 60 days.

    There are couple of stories about Sav stopping/making it difficult to transfer out domains.

    Apart from low prices Sav seems gaining lots bad reputation...in addition to already having from starting.

    As the domain is just 10 days old, regardless of what registrar it's at, you won't be able to transfer the domain.

    Ask the buyer if he is willing to accept a push at SAV might be a solution... But Dan will probably not accept that. See if they're willing to use Epik.

    If not... And he's willing to wait (maybe change nameservers so the buyer can use the domain in the meantime), transfer the domain to namecheap when allowed and finish the sale. Namecheap will not lock the domain for 60 days.

    You will however not gain an extra year of registration if you transfer it out again within 45 days. Namecheap will be refunded for the transfer and the gaining registrar will be charged for it to even the balance.

    60 day lock has nothing to do with SAV.

    It is an ICANN requirement. You can't do Afternic FT from any registrar within the 60 day lock.
    Just clearing the air about the 60 day lock, but yes, DAN don't transact names from SAV.

    Yes. They have an escrow account at namecheap. You can push the domain to their account and they will handle everything else.

    They do have an active transfer promo, about $7 for a .com fwiw.

    Ok thanks. Looks like I will start using Namecheap from now on. Was a loyal Godaddy user but they have become expensive. Have never used Namecheap but am hearing good things here.

    They're easy to work with in my experience although not the best pricing on renewals. Decent promos throughout the year. Bulk management isn't all that but it's a decent registrar overall.

    Not sure if you are using Dynadot but definitely one to look into. Good pricing. Great backend.

    Ok will look at Dynadot. Never used them either. Just an oldfashioned guy who sticks to what he knows . Till now it was Godaddy and abit of Gandi. Then discoved SAV and loved the low prices but now am bugged. Probably a x,xxx sale that lands in the garbage bin.

    I understand. Dynadot has a lot of fans over here and usually ends up in the top of the 'best registrar of the year' vote.

    Every registrar has its pros and cons obviously but if Gandi and GoDaddy is what you have been using you're probably gonna love them. Good support as well. Same goes for NC by the way, I find them to be very quick and accommodating.

    Yes, but look. I just checked Dynadot and the price of Dotcom is €6.50. Godaddy it around €20 . When you have around 300 domains to sell then the choice is clear. Just bugged that because SAV refused to unlock and DAN refused SAV that I will loose x,xxx.

    I have written to the buyer. Lets see. Yes, will start looking for alternatives. Never used Afternic either. God , I am so backward in these things.

    If that doesn't work, ask Dan for the contact info on the lead. Not sure if they'll provide it but since they don't wantnt to accommodate the sale I think it's only fair they'll release the info to you.

    I have written to him through DAN. He has already bought another domain from me for high X,XXX so I think he will respond. Domain was at godaddy so there was no problem.

    In this case, don't use dan for this domain transaction

    - instead, use escrow, epik, afternic, or other to finish transaction;
    - ask buyer to create sav account so you can push


    if buyer doesn't want to create sav, then ask to wait for 60 days.

    Thanks. I have written to the buyer that he can use the domainfor 50 days free. I can change the dns and the he can pay through DAN. But now DAN has informed me that they will not allow SAV so in case he is still interested he must make an account with SAV . Anyway , what a theater.
    God, Guys (DAN & SAV) bury the hatchet. Its got nothing to do with love , just money. If you get rid of the emotions , you win and we win.

    SAV.com need to improve their honesty level a little bit more. There are a lot of complaints against them.

    Dynadot has a 7.99 transfer going on as well COMOVER21

    Just my added commentary, DAN does not take dumping a registrar lightly. SAV has a reliability issue among others (go read the long complaint thread about them) and that can reflect poorly on DAN or anyone who does business with them. Cheap is not always worth it.

    Yes. Also, as from what I have seen reported, transfer issues which would hurt Dan's reputation as a venue. I don't like it either but gotta give it to them, they put their money where their mouth is. Even when that costs them good sales commission.

    But yes, it's the customer/domainer who suffers.
