New ICANN Transfers Policy
On November 12th, the new ICANN policy for registrar-to-registrar domain transfers takes affect.
The new policy covers registrar transfers for .COM/.NET/.ORG/.BIZ/.INFO domains.
Under the new policy, the "gaining registrar" MUST obtain your permission before intitiating a request to transfer a domain.
Once the gaining registrar initiates a change-of-registrar command, the following will happen:

A benefit to the new policy is that it will actually make it easier for registrants to move their domains who were experiencing "lock-in" and unable to do so. (If you have some troublesome domains that you were unable to move to easyDNS before, you will be able to do so from November 12th onwards).
In addition, the new policy also comes with a previously unavailable "transfer-undo" mechanism, which allows improper domain transfers to be reversed.
If you have any questions or concerns about the new policy, please don't hesitate to contact us.
