    To be on this list a registrar just has to handle ".ai" registrations, renewals, and transfers (in and out).

    We have had several problems with transfers into GoDaddy. First, you have to use auth codes of 32 characters or less. Second they can take weeks and many email and phone calls to actually do the transfer. Anyplace else the transfer is nearly instant once the receiving party does the transfer with the auth code and the domain is unlocked. With GoDaddy the auth code is just the start of a long process. For years GoDaddy could not transer .ai domains at all. We do not advise transfering to go GoDaddy and if you do don't ask us for help, the problem is all GoDaddy.

    FADT

    FADT = Free Auction Domain Transfer. This registrar does not charge their clients for domains transferred from auction.whois.ai where expired .ai domains are auctioned.
