This would make a great DNF resource that can be updated and added to in the future as you move domain names around.

Shockingly, I don't think I've ever come across a list as long as this about transfer times and this would be a good tool for decision making of where to hold domains.

Hi

it should be noted,
that any transfer from one registrar to a different registrar, requires an "authorization code" to be sent along with the transfer request.

that "auth code", is generated when the current domain owner submits the request for it thru their account, at the registrar where the domain currently resides.

the auth code is then sent/forwarded via email/pm/dm,etc.., to the buyer/new registrant, so they can initiate the transfer request from their registrar of choice.

once the buyer receives the domain, then they should acknowledge such, so the transaction can be officially closed.

one should also consider:
that any eta times for transfers, are dependent on both parties communicating thru-out the process and alerting each other of any issues that may arise.
since one party may be on other side of the world... sometimes it may take more than day to close a deal.


imo...

Thank you so much for your feedback bro, I will try to give something better for this DNforum in the future.

I understand the points you made. I should have pointed out these points. However, through your comments, everyone has come to know these issues better. I will try to write better about these issues in the future.

Good points to be added as another section to this list, especially if one of these registrars takes X time in unlocking that code for you or if it's visible to the customer immediately. This can gauge how long it'd take to complete a sale at a minimum to factor in time too.

But it's good as-is for an investor to know the amount of time it'll take to shift X% of their own portfolio to another registrar.

Hi

yeah, i know netsol takes up to 3 business days or longer to send the auth code.
so, if moving for yourself or to another owner, be prepared.

And this is one of the reasons why I haven't used them since they were $99/2 yr (when domains were ultra-premium in today's standards, but obviously a risk then). Unfortunately, I couldn't hold many being a poor middle school student and let a ton of names drop that are well beyond mid-5-figures today.

But, life happens and I just couldn't "HODL". :)
