eNom: Make It Easier for Bulk Transfers

I made a decision to transfer a large group of domain names to eNom, primarily because Bari Meyerson is my new account manager, and I appreciated working with her at Moniker. Bari helped me with the transfer, but I think eNom’s transfer approval process needs to be improved.

Upon initiating the transfer, I started receiving emails from eNom. Lots of emails. Apparently, even though I did a bulk domain transfer, I have to approve each individual domain transfer by clicking the link. If I don’t manually approve each, the name(s) will not transfer.

From the confirmation email:

If you WISH TO PROCEED with the transfer, you must respond to this message by using the following URL (note if you do not respond by 13 Jun 2012, domainname.x will not be transferred to us):
< url redacted>

If you DO NOT WANT the transfer to proceed, then don’t respond to this message.

I am happy to transfer a group of domain names, but I am not happy to spend an extra 10 minutes approving individual domain transfers. It’s especially annoying to know if I accidentally overlook one of the approval links, I am going to have to transfer it again.

eNom – please change your system and have bulk transfer approvals come through in one email!

  1. That’s why we use scripts to respond to the emails when helping others to consolidate their domains 😉

  2. Elliot – I agree there could be a simpler process. I’ll see if I can work some of my princess magic!

    Thanks for the feedback!

  3. Elliot, before transferring your domains IN I recommend checking if there’s a way to bulk transfer your domains OUT.

    I the past when I’ve tried to transfer out more than one domain I had to request EPP codes from them individually as well. I couldn’t find a way to request EPP codes in bulk.

  4. Go Daddy also lets you generate EPP codes in bulk by creating an “exportable list”, although that’s not very intuitive.

    Maybe eNom has something similar, but I could never find it. Apparently (as Frank mentions) you can use the API, but that’s above my technical level.
