Two months not being able to transfer domain to itself without jumping
through hoops   is as good a punishment as any. that said, seen as they are
an auDA accredited registrar this should be treated as a first of three
strikes.

Prohibited DDNS (for a period of 60 days) from transferring any domain name
from another registrar to itself unless it provides auDA with a copy of the
relevant authorisation, and auDA provides its consent.
