I have a .biz name registered with netnames.co.uk and want to transfer it out as their prices are extortionate, however they want to charge me £19 to transfer it out, however I am the registrant/admin contact so I assume that any transfer request would be emailed to me and I could aprove it and so avoid the £19 charge. Is it possible to lock a .biz domain to stop it being transfered (and they'd unlock this for £19) and if so how can I tell if it is locked or not, the WHOIS doesn't seem to mention if it is locked or not.
P.s. I just tried to use the advanced Whois at http://www.whobiz.biz
and they want $2 per record!!!
