Yes, yet another question on this I'm afraid.

I have a domain with another registrar who is going to charge me $6 per service (domain, redirection, email) for not having automatic renewals. Plus, handily for them, they don't bother sending renewal email reminders. Plus they charge $100 to move the domain elsewhere.

So, I was going to let it lapse and re-register it as a second domain with DH.

How long after lapse is the domain released for re-registration?

Do DH charge for email and redirection (until I port across to DH) on a second domain?

Cheers

My impression was that it is released immediately (and that this causes lots of problems for people).

Assuming you have a hosting plan, you can host (web, email, etc) as many domains as you want.

BTW, regarding the transfer policy of your "old" registrar, it sounds fishy wrt ICAAN's domain registration transfer policy.

What is the TLD for the domain? Dreamhost can only register .com/net/org/info domains.

Thanks for the reply.

Why would immediate release cause a problem?

It's a .org currently with Easyspace but will lapse if I don't pay up soon.

Is it LEGAL to charge $100 to transfer a domain out?

I agree that is sounds pretty fishy. It seems to violate the ICAAN domain registration transfer policy, by my reading of it.

Of course they can "charge" anything they want - the question is, can they collect? I'd CERTAINLY look hard at that policy (and maybe let the Dreamhost Ninja's go in and surgically extract that sweet nugget of loveliness from their cold hard hands.)

Betcha they could save you the $100... (grin)

OK, they might not let me cancel the domain now.

Perhaps they don't think anyone will challenge the $100. Which part of the ICANN policy do I invoke?

Eaayspace is not a small co. I'm in the UK if that makes any difference.

Do a web search for "easyspace domain transfer" and you'll find lots of info about better/cheaper ways of transferring your domain away from easyspace as well as some pretty interesting stories about easyspace.

The comments to this article mention that since you have a .org TLD, you can just transfer it away without involving easyspace at all after you collect your license key as per the following quote:

Quote:In fact if you log into the Control Panel and go to Domain Management and Transfer Management under the Transfer away option there is a tab to collect your license key.
It's slightly more difficult to transfer .uk domains but there's more info out there about how to do it using Nominet. (again, according to the same article)

OK thanks. I see it can be done via Nominet for cheaper.

Actually I think Easyspace are in breach of their T&Cs for not notifying me of renewal and their increased charges. I just want to cancel and re-register. I'm not too bothered about losing the domain, I can use another, I just don't want to pay the renewal charges.

The only problem is that I have another domain with them which I don't want to lose in any dispute.

Then get it out of their money grubbing hands ASAP! You've got to have faith in your registrar and it sounds like they're going at you like a jail house romance.
