I received an email from the losing registrar that my "domain names transfer request has been approved" for my domain. The transfer status in AMP still lists it as "Awaiting Registrar."

Hello Bigcomposer,

Thanks for your patience! The transfer of a domain may take anywhere from 7-10 days. The reason that the domain shows as "Awaiting Registrar" is because we are waiting on the domain registrar (for whom we are resellers) to complete the transfer. For further information go to Transfer domain to InMotion Hosting. Please allow for the typical transfer period to expire and let us know immediately if you continue to have any problems with the transfer.

If you have any further questions, please contact technical support available 24 hours a day / 7 days a week.
