Ok so last fall I registered a domain through Google, and only found out later that they *actually* just farm out the domain registration through Godaddy. Yerg, fine. But then I became very frustrated with GoDaddy's service because they weren't forwarding my domain correctly and refused to do it properly. Irritated, I waited 60 days and then tried to transfer to Dreamhost.
...Which GoDaddy denied because I had changed the DNS information of my site (which is required in order to transfer domains) and they claim that that constitutes a resetting of the 60-days bullshit. I tried emailing, but to no avail. Irritated, I decided to just play their stupid game and wait 60 days and try again.
So it has now been three months and I decided to give it another go, only to have it DENIED! AGAIN! And there is NO REASON this time!!!
I dont know what to do and Dreamhost cant do anything and they are the only people that respond to my emails. Please, someone help! :( :(
