    I heard about those problems at Registerfly for long time, but for six years I never had any issue that they could not resolve quickly and efficiently until early this year and even then I was able to get money refunded and register a few more domains early this February.

    However I'm going to work the problem now following your advice to make sure that older and more meaningful domains be transferred before the "Final Judgement Day" ;)

    I'm also hoping I'm wrong, although I'm not holding my breath given the actual
    complexity of the situation.

    As of this post, Registerfly's still displaying the ICANN registrar logo, despite a
    notice from ICANN immediately terminating the right to use such.

    As of now, there is no white knight appearing as yet and I am not sure if any registrar would be willing to take over for free. I don't believe that ICANN will hold a gun against anyone's head to force them to take over Registryfly's customers.

    That dreamhost deal is sweet.

    I'm assuming that once you've transferred one you become an existing customer and therefore can't transfer more... right?

    Yes that looks like it is good for only 1 domain name.

    You need to get it from Registerfly the Auth Code or EPP Code.

    If it just show 'RP', you can find a solution at http://www.registerflies.com .

    Reading the dreamhost promo, it appears to be just for one domain. Because after you sign up for that one, you are already an existing customer and existing customers cannot sign up for this promo ;)

    If your domains are with eNom, then you will need to contact eNom. There is a way to get back ownership of such domains, that includes sending copy of your ID with photo per fax to them. I think there is more info on it at registerflies.com .

    I found the advise on RegisterFlies didn't work either. As I understand it that advise is for RegisterFly domains as opposed to RegisterFly (eNom reseller) registered domains.

    For RegisterFly/eNom domains I got a response within a couple of days by emailing and sending the domains list and RegisterFly username. As long as your email matches the whois info for your domain(s) you’ll be fine – you’ll have to turn off whois protection of course.

    My domains are on Registefly's panel but the whois says the registrar is eNom.

    I can manage them, change whois, nameservers, etc., but the missing item is the authorization code, and no reply from Oscar yet :(

    I even created a new Registerfly account as suggested elsewhere (yes, you can create new accounts still) then after pushing the domain no codes and again push back to my main account.

    Enom says that they will respect Registerfly's pricing but I read somewhere out there that once your request a transfer they charge $160 or $50 per domain, this is really confusing to me :confused:

    I found I had to click on the link for the domain name, and it's really, really slow to get the right screen. They seem to have all sorts of versions of the same thing.

    [​IMG]

    and then expand the contact info

    [​IMG]

    When you click configure scroll down to the bottom and the code should be there.

    The big problem is getting the right version of the screen. This method has worked for me.

    Namecheap had no problems picking up 2 of my domains. Still waiting for dreamhost to get the last one.

    Registerfly still show they control the domain, but namecheap show the transfer as complete and have emailed me accordingly.

    Registerfly don't reply anymore to my tickets. I did send them $$ via paypal about 3 weeks ago to try and renew a domain, but it was never applied. I raised a ticket to get my funds back, but no response. So I put in a complaint with PayPal and the next day Registerfly had returned my funds. But they still wont communicate with me directly.

    1 of my domain names has no auth code after I click "Configure" as per above instructions.

    The other domain, although it has an auth code, the email address on WHOIS is still registerfly's email address. Yes, I have disabled protectfly, but never updates in WHOIS.

    April 1st has now passed and seems no solution on the horizon. I thought ICANN had more power... can't they just take control of our domain names?
