Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
One of the domains is in the redemption period right after it expired. (It expired waiting on them to mess around for a week or so to UNLOCK it for me so I could transfer it).
I was told by GoDaddy that there is supposed to be a 12 day grace period and they found it odd that 1and1 says it is in Redemption. It expired on 10-31-09 and immediately went into redemption according to 1and1. The lovely choices they give me is to pay them 40 bucks to get it out of redemption or wait for it to expire and try to get it.
It is not a domain that is worth much, so I am not paying 40 bucks or even 20 bucks to grab it.
I just wanted to transfer and renew it.
My question is do all registrars have to offer the grace period and is it legal for a registrar to put it in redemption immediately when it expires.
Thanks for your help.
What bugs me isn't the 5 days, but how easy it is to make a fake driver's license copy via poor quality fax...
