If I registered a domain with you and it expired, how do I transfer it to another registrar?
Unfortunately, expired domains cannot be transferred; it is an ICANN regulation. They typically stick around for 75 days, the first 30 of which you can still renew them. If you renew an expired domain, you can then transfer it to another registrar again.

Once a domain has fully expired and has been released from the main database server, you would then want to quickly register it anew with the new Registrar. Clearly, it's best if you get in your transfer request before the domain expires as there is a possibility of losing your domain name to someone else during this interim period.
