Universal Resource Identifiers -- Axioms of Web Architecture

HTTP GET hall of flame

The web is an information space. When you explore it, you don't end up buying stuff, agreeing to anything, or - in this case losing your domain name!

Subject: Confirm Domain Transfer

A Transfer Request was submitted for the following domains.
Click on the following link to confirm the domain transfer request for these domains.


Your Transfer Request Code IS: ces[...]cbI



If you did not request the transfer of these domains then DO NOT click on the above links.
By not clicking you are preventing a domain registrar transfer from taking place.

Thank you, The Automated Domain Transfer System

And thank you, registerapi.com, for an example of how not to do it. Of course, I didn't click on the link to find out what would happen. Maybe they do take you to a form which has a submit button for the action of agreeing to losing the domain name.

(Oh, and by the way, www.or is not for sale and never will be!)
