    GoDaddy now has free transfers

    I searched the board and didn't find any mentions of this. And fees for transfers was one of the biggest problems with GoDaddy, I got an email saying that they will no longer be charging for transfers, here is the main content of the email:
    Here are the changes in service I'd like you to know about:


    1. Effective June 21, 2002, transferring domain name ownership is FREE.

    Prior to this, transferring ownership cost $9.95, and required that certain
    paper documents be signed and notarized. Due to many requests by our customers,
    we have changed this process entirely. The new process is now free. It's much
    more convenient, yet still very secure.

    We no longer require you to sign paper contracts. To effect a change of
    ownership, just log into "Manage My Domains" and change the appropriate
    information regarding the domain name (usually the Registrant and Admin info).
    That's all there is to it!

    To assure your security and to prevent your becoming a victim of mischief, we do
    two things when you request a change of ownership. First, we immediately send an
    email to the owner of the domain name before the actual transfer of ownership,
    alerting him or her that the transfer been made within our system. Second, we
    "lock down" that domain name in our system for 60 days. During this time, the
    domain may not be transferred away from Go Daddy to another registrar. This
    allows the prior owner of the domain to alert us if it should not be
    transferred, and we will reverse the transfer if we're so alerted.

    This new policy makes it very important that you make sure your current email
    address is on file with us, and that you check your email periodically.
    I have always like goDaddy, but now I like them even more!

    In the first 20 threads in the Domain forum there are two threads with nearly the same title as this one...

    You don't even need to search to find them.
