A domain I own with a registrar is expiring next month. I want to change registrar. Is there a way of changing registrar exactly on expiration date or the only way is to start (and pay) the transfer procedure? I don't want to let the domain expire even for few minutes.
The thing to do is to renew the domain and then once the date is passed when it would have expired, to transfer to the new registrar. You probably won't get a refund from the first registrar.
