Domain Transfer - pendingTransfer


I made a domain transfer request “.com” more than 5 days ago and it is still pendingTransfer…

However the date of the Expires domain on 2020-07-22 …

What should be done to effect the transfer (I already checked in the current Registrar and there is no option to speed up)?

I paid the transfer to cloudflare, should I renew the domain in the old/current Registrar?

That means the domain expired a week ago. You might not be able to transfer the domain at all then.

“.com” is not very helpful when asking for help. What’s the actual domain?

If it wasn’t for the pending transfer status I’d say that domain has expired and you would have to renew it with the current registrar. However there is the pending transfer status.

At this point it is best to open a support ticket with your current registrar as well as Cloudflare and ask if the transfer actually went through and what the status is.

Interestingly, the domain claims to have been last updated in 2019.

On average how many days a transfer is made?

On average how long do they respond in cloudflare support?

I have a lot of doubts that the order will be fulfilled … until because it only refers to the Updated date of 2019, if I’m not mistaken when the dns was changed :frowning:

Verisign’s whois actually shows an update date of 2020

It seems other whois services are not precisely in agreement here, but Verisign should be the authority.

A transfer can take up to five days. If you transferred it on the 24th it could take until tomorrow. You should still contact your current registrar and verify if the transfer is successful, respectively check all emails you received.

The transfer was requested on the 2020-07-23, which has already done the 5 days … :frowning:

And what exact time did you request the transfer?


Hawaiian time I presume.

Western European Summer Time
GMT +01:00

In that case, yes, five days would have passed.

As mentioned before it is best you contact your registrar.

in your new who is information there is one good data, the “Registry Expiry Date”
because is 2021 :slight_smile:

New, I don’t know. Still the domain should have been transferred by now, so you should talk to your registrar.
