WordPress offers free domain transfer (with 1 year renewal) if you transfer from Google Domains. I don't think there is a max domain limit, because people already transferred hundreds of domains. I also transferred 5 domains and their expiration dates were extended. As far as I see, there is no limitation such as non-editable nameservers.

You need to sign in with Wordpress.com account first. Then unlock domain on Google Domains panel. Get auth code and put it to WordPress.com website. Transfer process takes up to 20 minutes, which is surprisingly fast (normally it takes up to 1 week). They require a credit card, but I haven't been charged (still better to use VCC).

I searched the forum but couldn't find, my apologies if anybody else has already shared this before.

Can we then transfer someplace else? or are we locked into it?
