    And what's the transfer fee after 1 year? I'm betting it's more than 2 years at other registrars...

    You don't pay the transfer fee to the old domain registrar. You pay to the new registrar.

    Maybe it's not a thing anymore, but at lot of registrars used to charge a fee to allow transfers out. I don't really keep up to date with DNS news, so maybe this isn't a thing any more, but in the old days a low first year fee was always a sign that you'd be locked in for extortionate prices later on.

    I don’t think it’s allowed for your current registrar to charge you to get a transfer code. I could be wrong but I’m pretty sure if it were the case a lot more would do it to avoid people from leaving (I.e making crazy prices to unlock the domain)

    If a registrar ever attempts to charge you for a transfer code // to unlock your domain you should contact ICANN and report them

    It looks like the rules have changed since I last looked, but not in a very coherent way!

    https://www.icann.org/resources/pages/name-holder-faqs-2017-10-10-en

    My registrar is charging me a fee to transfer to a new registrar. Is this allowed?
    Yes. Registrars are allowed to set their own prices for this service so some may choose to charge a fee. However, a transfer cannot be denied due to non-payment of this transfer fee. There are other reasons your registrar can deny transfer request. See FAQ #8 above for more information.

    So they are allowed to charge you, but cannot prevent a transfer if you refuse to pay! But in the #8, it says if it is locked, they can refuse the transfer and they just have to provide "reasonable means" to unlock it... but says nothing about disallowing a charge for that. So, who knows... I'd play it safe and just assume if a deal seems too good to be true, it probably is.

  • you cant pay.. none of the credit cards i have worked

    It's true. I have the same problem and sent an email to [email protected] about 18 hours ago, got no reply yet.

    Same, maybe you can only pay with Asian cards?

    My profile picture was taken on 2010-Jul-01.
    I'm told that the profile picture is part of my personal brand and I'm not supposed to change it often, so it remained.

    Same shirt and shorts, six years later in Tucson AZ and ten years later in Gaithersburg MD.

    You've got it backwards.

    @yoursunny is a prenatal prodigy genius suffering from advanced aging. He's only 3 years old. He looks extremely old for his age. Knows more than most toddlers about IPv6, too.
