Transfer Yahoo Domain to IM?

I tired through IM control panel in my account. I'm told I need to fill out a form and send it to Australia because my Registry Key is unavailable. Surely there is an easier way? Also, how do I know if my domain is locked? Thank you!

Hello Riverguy,

When transferring a domain from Yahoo to InMotion, you will need to get the registry key from Yahoo directly and have them unlock the domain for you. Without their assistance, the domain cannot be transferred as they currently have what is called management rights. Once they release those and provide the registry key, then the transfer should go through without any issue.

I hope this answers your question. If you have any more questions or information specific to the issue please leave a comment below so we can further assist you.

Best Regards,
Scott M
