Just transferred a domain from Namecheap to Porkbun today and this email is so damn misleading –
received notification on 2/6/20 at 2:00:05 PM that you have requested a transfer to another domain registrar.
If you WANT TO PROCEED with this transfer, you do not need to respond to this message. If you WISH TO CANCEL the transfer, please go to our website [link removed]
If we do not hear from you by 2/11/20 at 2:00:05 PM, the transfer will proceed.
By the wording of the email, it makes it sound like you have to wait all five days before the transfer will go through. After being kinda irritated by this, I clicked the link that was included and on that page it prompted me to accept or decline the transfer from Namecheap -> Porkbun. After accepting, the transfer was pushed through and completed in just an hour or so. By the wording of the email, I should have only clicked the link if I wanted to stop the transfer, not accept it.
I’m not really sure what they gain by doing this and holding up the transfer in such a manner, but it seems a bit deceptive to me. </morning rant>
