And unlike any other registrar, if you transfer a name into Verisign,
they do not honor any time remaining at the previous registrar.
EVERY other registrar simply adds a year to the end of the domain
name, and honors the time at the other registrars. But not Verisign's
Any wonder that people don't like Verisign as a registrar and are
leaving in droves?
