    Have some domain names that have "expired", but still within GoDaddy 12 day Grace Period to renew w/o paying $80 penalty fee.
    Does anyone know if I can still transfer these domains to a different Registrar & not renew w/ GoDaddy?
    Also, does anyone know how the 12 days are calculated? Does it start w/ the date of "expiration", or the day after? Can I still renew on the 12th day?
    I have not been able to get a straight answer from GoDaddy on this. Can't even get a straight answer concerning the 12 Day Grace period from agent, but have received emails concerning the 12 day grace period. Tried reading thru the "Terms & Conditions", but not being an attorney it's all Greek to me.
    Appreciate any help.

    You can try doing the transfer and see if it works. You will just have to unlock and ask for the authorization code. If you get confirmation email saying your transfer is in progress then yeah you can transfer the domain

    My only concern doing is that GoDaddy "expires" it & it's gone. So if I do that I will use a domain I don't care about.

    hardcorebiker,
    You can transfer within the 12 day grace period for GoDaddy.
    Went thru the transfer process smooth as silk. Used chat for assistance & got someone who was very knowledgeable. He walked me thru the process step by step. Transferred all of the ones I wanted to keep that had expired.
