Hey guys,

 

I've just bought a domain through domaindirect and found out I have to pay extra for creating TXT records...

 

Based on your guys comments in other threads I was going to transfer it to metaname but when I do I get the error:

 

"Name cannot be transferred because it is within its registration grace period"

 

My googling says this grace period is 60 days - is this correct? I really dont want to have to pay for their stupid premium DNS.

5 days for .nz

 

There is (should be) also a cancellation allowance within this grace.

 

Just have to wait it out before transfer

 

 

7.11 There is a grace period of five days upon a domain name first being registered, during which time the Registrar may cancel the registration.

 

7.12 Where the domain name is cancelled during the grace period it will be removed from the Register. The registration and cancellation will still be recorded for audit purposes. The same Registrar is able to re-register the same domain name but it is not able to be cancelled for a second time within one month of the initial registration.

 

7.13 A Registrant will not be able to transfer the management of its domain name to another Registrar during the grace period.
