    Registerfly - Domain Transfer Pricing

    I got an email yesterday that says that transfers are $3.69 USD
    When I try to do a transfer it says $3.99 USD

    WTF?

    Sorry there won't be anything constructive in this reply.

    Two things pop into mind.

    "Unsafe at any Speed" a book title of Ralph Nader's.

    From the song "RAN" by A Flock of Seagulls

    "And I ran, I ran so far away.
    I just ran, I ran all night and day.
    I couldn't get away."

    Oh wait, wait, a third thing..."Just say NO!"

    seemed to change the price to 3.69 for me. I think it is uppercase

    You really want to transfer domains TO Registerfly? After all the bad publicity they've been getting?

    I would not transfer names to Registerfly if they paid me $3.99 each.
    But others, . . . do feel free take up this stupendous offer.

    Personally, my experiences with Registerfly have all been good ones Really! Oh, there was a small exception when they failed to register a domain, but it was all handled very professionally, using their support ticket system. I do use their support ticket system occassionally. I've had zero problems with it. I wouldn't use them as a permanent registrar tho. That would be too scary. But I do use them as a place to receive domains I've bought from people who use Registerfly. All my transfers away have gone without a hitch

    I bear no animosity personally towards Registerfly, so you can't piss me off by transfering your domains there. In fact I'd recommend you do

    For a couple of dollars? I really wouldn't waste my time with all the hassle involved in transferring to a registrar and transferring back again after 60 days. If you have 1000 domains then maybe, but that 1000 times more hassle. If you have nothing better to do with your time than manage all these transfers, then it might be worthwhile. I appreciate there are different strokes for different folks, however. It's not something I'd do. I'd leave them safely tucked up with my existing registrar.

    I don't think you're risking too much transferring your domain(s) to RF, *IF* you're absolutely sure you know what you're doing. You must make sure you know domains EPP code (not rely on RF ability to supply this to you). You must NOT lock your domain(s) there (not rely to RF ability to unlock them later on). You must NOT use their FlyProtect feature (not rely on their ability to remove that later on or to forward emails to you (which NEVER worked for me)). That's it - a short manual how to survive transferring to RegisterFly and away...
