What Wild West Domains (WildWestDomains.com), a Godaddy reseller, is doing makes no sense at all and is clearly infringing the rules and regulations set by the ICANN. Just imagine the following situation:
You register a domain whatever.com a few months ago. Obviously you enter all your data including your present address and whatever else is required to complete your correct WhoIs entry. Some time later you decide to move and you really take care (most people don't) that you update your contact data for your domains . Now here comes Wild West Domains and obliges you to accept their nonsense, that you can not move the domain out (transfer) for the next 60 days.
Now obviously, knowing domain business, you don't really take this very seriously. But now comes the case: This domain has been sold and the buyer wants to transfer the domain to a different registry. You unlock the domain, get hold of the authorization code and send it to the buyer for him to start the transfer as usual. Well done, everything is completed.
No, not with Wild West Domains!!!
The buyer just receives a system message from his own registry stating "Transfer Rejected" and just contacts you to ask what happened. Now what, you don't even know what happened,on your side everything is fine. Hey buyer, something must be wrong on your side, please try again. Try again, same thing happens. OK, latest now you get in touch with Wild West Domains support and ask what is going on (You just aren't aware, that your change of address would be causing this).
Here you can now read all the correspondence to and frow:
You would think, anyone with a minimum of common sense would say OK and release the domain.
But no, not Wild West Domains, they prefer to stick to their own TOS knowing that they are infringing ICANN regulations and that they are doing the worst thing you can do to a customer.
Why am I writing this?
I am the buyer, wanting to transfer this domain to a Registry I trust and not to a Reseller that will not respect my wishes and not even my rights.
One thing is sure, Wild West Domains has lost at least one customer with this move.
