Domain Not Eligible For Transfer Error
If your domain indicates that it is not eligible for transfer, do not despair, this may happen for several reasons. No registrar is allowed to keep your domain prisoner. It might just be that your current domain is ‘locked’ for transfer, or some other unforeseen error has occurred.
Solutions Guide To Troubleshoot Domain Transfer Issues / Errors
