at 8/2023 I purchased a domain name csariel.xyz at namecheap.com, for a year. After some time, I decided to "cut the middlemen" so I transferred the domain name to its original registrar gen.xyz, which charges less money per year. However, when I look at my account at gen.xyz, I see that the domain is "cancelled":

enter image description here

I definitely did not cancel it, and the expiration date should have been 8/2024.

Is it normal that a domain-name appears as "Cancelled" after a transfer? If so, what can I do to un-cancel it?

Things I tried:

  • Clicked the "Manage" button: I did not find there any way to un-cancel.
  • Opened support tickets: no one replied even after 3 days.

What other options do I have to make my domain-name work?

  • In particular, if gen.xyz ignores my support tickets and does not let me use the domain I bought, is there any place I can complain to?

As it appears that gen.xyz does indeed run the registry, you may have a hard time getting anyone other then them to do anything about that domain name.

  • If gen.xyz ignore my requests and do not let me use the domain. do I have any recourse? Is there any global authority that manages the registration of names through registrars, to which I can turn for help? Oct 12, 2023 at 7:47
  • Also, I see "Registrar: TLD Registrar Solutions Ltd", This is not gen.xyz - what is it? Is it the registrar from whom gen.xyz buy the domain name? Oct 12, 2023 at 7:52
  • I don't think you have any recourse other then litigation as they appear to be the people who own .xyz. Initially I thought gen.xyz was different to the authority which is nic.xyz - but they appear more-or-less the same crowd. Outside of them you have ICANN (icann.org) but i imagine they will not be to interested in sorting out your issue as they have delegated responsibility to nic.xyz.

  • What does "serverTransferProhibited " and "clientTransferProhibited " mean? I have just transferred my domain. Oct 12, 2023 at 11:26
  • Im not 100% sure for this registry, but (going by other registries use of that phrase) I expect that you cant change ownership or registry associater with the domain right now. There is often a "standdown period" whrn changing registrar/owner if a domain ame to mitigate risks of domain theft and obsale. Its normally about 1 to 2 months after an owner or registrar change.

I wrote to ICANN through their compliance complaint page: https://www.icann.org/compliance/complaint They forwarded the complaint to the registrar, and finally - after 9 days - they un-canceled my account.
