I took the steps to prepare the transfer of responsibility to the new person. I called GoDaddy and informed them of the change of ownership, ensure it would not renew under my name and submitted all required information to the new admin. The site is set up, easy to maintain and add to and ready to go. Well they are deciding to move the site to a company I've never heard of and change the look. Today I received several e-mails containing questions on transferring it to the new company; how do I transfer the domain? How do I save all the information? Why is the domain unavailable to the new company? What is the e-mail address associated with the account? And more...
I considered working through the change until I really thought about it. For one they are basically trashing the site I worked to create and make almost maintenance free and having a hosting company I've never even heard of set up a new site (paying them when I've been doing it for free for 4 years). She asked me to conduct the transfer and get it all going before I leave my position.
Well, I replied to her informing her that the domain is "unavailable" because it is registered through GoDaddy until September. Since I removed the auto-renew if she does nothing with the domain or hosting then everything is shut down and lost as of September. It is up to her to figure it out and contact her new company to find out about transferring it all over. After all, isn't that what she is paying them for?
Good on me? Or am I a bitch...
Do I look impressed?
