The iCANN rules on this question do not clarify this rule.
Sections of the rule reveal information that led me to believe that it is possible to get around this rule with opting out of the 60-day lock with my registrar. If you select this option, is it then possible to offer your domain for sale and complete a transfer of ownership prior to the expiration of 60 days?
Is this opt-out rule available only for the changing of the current owner's personal details if they need to update their contact information?
Does anyone have very clear information on this rule?
I have found information that is encouraging that I can offer my domains for sale, as long as the buyer is aware and agrees to remaining time in the 60-day lock before transferring the domain to a new registrar.
Q: Can ICANN lift the 60-day lock on domains? A: No, ICANN does not place, nor can it lift a 60-day lock on domain names. Registrars must impose a lock that will prevent any transfer to another registrar for sixty (60) days following a change to a registrant's information. Registrars may (but are not required to) allow registrants to opt out of the 60-day lock prior to the change of registrant request. Contact your registrar to see if they will allow you to opt out of the 60-day lock period.
My domains are registered with name.com and they do offer the opt-out feature. I am hoping this option will allow me to sell my domain immediately.
Clarification is greatly appreciated.
