    Yahoo Domains.. Anyway To Transfer Or Sell?

    Can domains bought via Yahoo be sold and or transfered to a new person? What about to another registrar?

    I ask this because I have not been able to find any info on this so far.

    Thanks in advance.

    Yahoo outsources its registry service to MelbourneIT. Your first step should be to get the registry key so you can control your domain directly through MelbourneIT's site.

    You can transfer the domain name away from Yahoo. Last time I have done, it took around 12 days.
    Imagination is more important than knowledge.

    Does anyone have more detailed or step-by-step instructions?
    IE: how to get the 'registry key' and how to use it?

    I'd heard people having a hard time trying to transfer away from yahoo so when I put my transfer in motion I started a thread for people to see the pitfalls or the success of moving from yahoo, here's the thread:

    Attempt to transfer domain reg from yahoo

    I found it a piece of cake and although I didn't have the registry key, I didn't need it/wasn't asked for it by my new registrar.

    How do I transfer my domain to another registrar?

    The transfer went through just fine.
