    So one can't transfer a domain name to a new vendor?  That's pretty nasty, if so, especially as GoDaddy has my personal name for a URL.  Has that ever been challenged for personal names?  Do they ever go back into public domain?

    My apologies to students who took my U.S. Government class in the 90s: evidently the Constitution doesn't limit Presidential power after all. Who knew?

      unless you're Barack Obama, it's hard to argue that you should be the only one that can buy/use a particular personal domain name.  I registered my full name a long time ago and I take care to keep it up to date.

      You can transfer between resellers.  I don't think people have too much trouble with GoDaddy, though.  The best thing you can do is stay on top of your registration.

        and it doesn't come up for renewal until January.  I just want to make sure I can move it, so long as I do find another reseller I like.
