I originally registered my domain name with a friend’s company. She was trying to start a domain registration and web hosting business so I thought I’d give her a shot. My domain is registered through her, but it’s hosted by Dreamhost. I’m trying to move my domain away from her as she’s not a very good business to be in relationship with. On her customer page it shows that my domain is unlocked. However on Whois.com it shows a status of “clientTransferProhibited”.
Whois told me that it’s because I have “Theft Protection” turned on. Now I don’t see anywhere on her site where I have theft protection. Could there be something on the Dreamhost side that’s locking my domain? Dreamhost is the website host but not the domain registrar. Could there still be something here that I’m missing?
