Domain name problems settled

Dear readers, my domain name transfer problems have been resolved. Thanks for your concern and feedback on domain registration services.
Part of the delay was due to Gmail marking every automated email from my new registrar, Namecheap, as spam. Even after unmarking one email and moving it to my Inbox, a second email was still blocked when I re-requested for the transfer. It’s quite a dangerous thing to happen especially as my domain was about to expire and I had to respond to each email to confirm I did want the transfer. Boy am I glad everything’s been settled.
As promised, my new registrar did a manual transfer. I quite like the domain name control panel and they’ve also thrown in extra services, more than what I had with my previous registrar.
