clientTransferProhibited

I'm transferring a (recently expired) domain away from godaddy. However, whois indicates the domain has ICANN status clientTransferProhibited. godaddy seems to be forcibly locking the domain despite my initiating a transfer. What gives?

Hello @dmitry-shechtma!

 

Thank you for posting. What that means is that the domain is locked. In order to transfer a domain, it needs to be unlocked

Thank you, Heather.

 

It's great to know GoDaddy provides 24/7 support. Too bad the online chat is offline during my business hours, and a simple community post takes days to get a reply.

 

The steps contained in the link refer to an outdated UI. I was able to unlock my domain with 80% guesswork.

 

I will soon be transferring my other domains away from GoDaddy.

 

Thanks again,

Dmitry
