I have a domain name that has been registered since 1998 with Network Solutions. I'd like to save on renewal fees and transfer the domain to a different registrar.
Is anyone aware of any search engine penalties for transferring registrars? I read somewhere that Google may be taking WHOIS data into consideration and I don't want to mess with my rankings to save a few bucks.

Just move it to a cheap registar. If you are really worried, register it for 9 years with the cheap registrar, and the as soon as possible move it back to Netsol. Personally, given the choice between having flaming bamboo shoots stuck up my fingernails and a domain name with Netsol, I'd take the former. Netsol sucks.
