    I have registered my domain (around 100+ of them) with yahoo for 5 years each. Now i m worried about it.
    If I tranfer it to other host, I loose what I paid for (5 years fee) and have to pay more ($9.99) for the transfer.:(
    SEMrush
    Thats sum the cost (loss + charges) to be around $6000. :(

    I donno what to do. Any suggestions?

    Hey! I've got a big problem with yahoo domains now. I've bought last november 2 domains from them, with $2.99 on the same yahoo account. Now I need to transfer one of those domains, but, suprise...it isn't in the "my services" area, so I can't unlock it to initiate the transfer. Anyone else had this problem? If so pleaase help me. Any other suggestions are welcome

    I dont think you'll loose the 5 year registration..
    I transferred my domain from yahoo which was registered for 2 years to godaddy..
    Now my domain has a validity of 3 years ie the two I had paid at yahoo and one along with the transfer.
    What you need to invest now is the transfer fee only.. and your validity will not be lost..

    I would write them an email. Probably will be no problem. But if it is, please post the outcome.

    I never tried yahoo web services. But it looks like they are very bad. Better to stay away.

    this can happen on any domain provider. somewhere in terms&agreements says they can cut you off if you do anything wrong.

    I agree, Google is pretty good in terms of customer care.
    I would suggest to use goDaddy for domains and hostway or other DEDICATED stuff for hosting.

    what tips could you provide to avoid engaging in this problem other than staying away from yahoo domains?

    If Yahoo wants to pull that crap, then they need to give you a refund to go along with it.
