They are a reseller of; I've contacted publicdomainregistry, and they said:.


The domain name is already unlocked and is in Active status at the registry. You can place a transfer request by going to the gaining registrars control panel.

However, to place a transfer request you would require the Authorisation Code from your current reseller. You will not be able to place a transfer request without this transfer code. Kindly ask your current reseller to provide you with a transfer code for your domain name..

Thanks for the suggestion. Things have turned for the better after mentioning my posts on forums and review sites and my intention to contact the ICANN, it seems: they've given me a refund and info on why the domain cannot be transferred (transfer is prohibited for 90 days after registration). Why they were unable to tell this three weeks ago is beyond me.

Welcome to namepros.

Because their services is just sooooooooo sooooooooooo..

Comment #3

Yeah the 90 day transfer thing is an ICANN rule, so theres no getting around it. Actually I thought it was 60 days, but I'm probably wrong...

Comment #4

It is 60days(icann rules), not 90days I'm dealing with something similar...

Comment #5

Most registrars prevent Transfer within 60 days. The reason is so you dont buy 8 years at regisrar 1 - transfer to registrar 2 for another year and then do a chargeback on the first registrar (thus getting a domain for free for 8 years). 90 days maybe included in the terms of service - check there first!..

Comment #6

According to publicdomainregistry, it's 60 days. 3ix is a reseller of publicdomainregistry. Anyway, I have the domain and will transfer once the locked period elapsed.

Thanks for all replies, guys!.
