Godaddy rejected domain transfer to Namecheap

UPDATE: So GoDaddy rejected my request to transfer my domain names to namecheap yesterday and they sent an email today saying “I’ve been selected for special 15% discount” Yay. Funny, I will make an angry call tomorrow.


I do not understand why they decided to reject my transfer?

Here’s an email content from
