    i've sold a domain to this guy. Now i dont know how to transfer it.

    I got it registered in a europe registrar. I got the AUTH info code. The guy tells me it's not enough, he wants to transfer it to go daddy:

    "when I start the transfer it asks for two things
    transaction id
    security code"


    i'm not sure what i'm supposed to do. Thanks for help

    Ick, domain transfers between registrars can be tricky. And GD's xfer process is convoluted at best, so the buyer is probably very confused as well.

    You should have received some automated emails from your registrar about initiating the transfer process. Look through those, especially look for any other id's, codes, etc. Send him anything your registrar has sent you as far as transaction, unlock, and other codes or id #'s.

    If the quotation part - "it asks for two things blah blah blah" - is the buyer telling you what GoDaddy is asking for, tell the guy to contact GD tech support and ask for a Transfer Concierge rep. These are "specialists" in transfers (that's how tricky the process can be and how much another layer of complexity to it the big GD adds). That will buy you some time, and if they buyer is a newb, the xfer concierge service should be able to help him figure out what he needs to do.

    Someone has to buy a transfer credit, was this a private sale (person-to-person) or through an aftermarket third-party? Knowing that might help me advise you further.

    peace,
    gregs.
