RE: [registrars] Transfer Process Points

BTW I dont know if I am missing something here but there is one thing I
could not find in the document which is VERY VERY important - and that is
the policy of transferring domain names during the 45 day auto-renew period.
Right now as I know it bulkregister, networksolutions and register.com do
not allow trfer of domain names after the expiry during the auto-renew
period. However the true spirit of the auto-renew is actually meant to allow
the customer to renew the domain name with the registrar of his choice
within that period. Infact the verisign document clearly states that a
refund would be made to the losing registrar if a domain name is trferred
during the auto-renew period.

this particular issue also causes a lot of transfer coincerns. Since most
customers do not wake up about the trf process immediately. Then at the last
moment if only about 4-5 days are left for the expiry it is not possible to
do the trfer.

I dont know what the TUCOWS policy is on this since I have not trefrred any
domains after expiry from TUCOWS yet
