Domain transfers past expiration : It won’t work with eNom!

In a recent article about domain transfers past expiration, we came to the conclusion that they are feasible.

Most domain registrars these days take a non-aggressive stance to losing customers, in hopes that overall they’ll attract more.

Unfortunately, that’s not the case with eNom and its antiquated back-end interface, so an update is due on the subject of domain transfers to another registrar, past a domain’s expiration date.

As one can see in the picture below, a domain that expired yesterday cannot have anything changed, including getting the authorization transfer code. The “Manage Domain” drop down is inactive.

The provision to unlock the domain is enabled, but such a move is useless without being able to obtain the auth code via email.

While there is a chance that a ticket request would resolve this matter, it should not be that difficult to resolve without customer support intervention. So the only option at this point, is to renew the domain.

Tucows acquired eNom from Rightside, which subsequently was acquired by Donuts, Inc.
