Domain Registration Transfer Failure -- Will I still be charged?


#1

I see that when you transfer a domain to DreamHost, they charge for the one year renewal required by ICANN.

I started a domain transfer, paid the associated fee, and then was told that the transfer failed (administrative contact for the domain I’m transferring in forgot to unlock it). Will I still be charged this fee? Will it cost me the price of another year renewal if I try the transfer again?

i’ve had transfers fail (to/from another registrar). they just refund your payment or ask you to try again.

If the transfer failed, the cost of the transfer should be refunded to your account (so you can try again at no additional cost).
