Transfer Domain Away from Squarespace

Recommended Posts

Trying to transfer a domain away from Squarespace but the process is taking forever. Does anybody know how to approve the transfer?

Every step is designed to be as painful as possible with one or two day delays sprinkled everywhere and it is also full of dark design patterns. Even the transfer notification email is crafted with malicious compliance and does not allow the user to approve the transfer and says the transfer will take 5 business days. 

No other domain registrar does this kind of trickery. Why isn't there an option to approve the transfer? I do not want to be your customer and I regret not transferring the domain while it was still managed by Google Domains.

Squarespace has maliciously slowed down the process - 

There used to be a way to actively approve the transfer however now the only option is to cancel it and if you want it to proceed you need to wait for 5 days.

I had a domain moved to Squarespace as part of the Google Domains acquisition - because of their poor customer service I started a transfer this morning and I'll need to wait for 5 days.

I also preemptively transferred all of my domains that were still in Google Domains and they've all completed within 30 minutes or less per domain
