    DNS is tricky business right now. Especially with the No response transfer clause now in effect. Perhaps you should get on GoDaddy very strongly, or work with an escrow site to manage the transfer, but not uphold responsibility of their TOS/EULA.

    Domain Transfer Rant

    I own about 20 domains, I have them with different companies. A customer of mine decided to take over the administration of thier own domain.

    I told them to open an account on a registrar, and request the transfer, and that I would transfer ownership of the domain into thier name. I get an email today from that says.

    " received a request on 4/7/2005 for us to become the new registrar of record." ect ect... "because you are the administrative contact" ect.. ect.. "You must agree to enter into a new Registration Agreement with us."
    ect.. ect.. "Once a transfer takes place, you will not be able to transfer to another registrar for 60 days"

    No where does it say who its being transferred to, who initiated it. How am I entering an agreement? Im giving it to someone, and once its thiers, I cant transfer reguardless of 60 days.

    I called them and they refused to verify who the transfer request came from for "security reasons".

    Anyone else seen this? do all registrars do transfers blindly without letting the parties know who the transfer is going to?
