We are sorry for the confusion in regards to your domain. As a web hosting company and an ICANN certified registrar HostPapa is subject to the rules and regulations governing the transferring of domain names.
All companies are subject to the 60day restriction that ICANN puts on new domain transfers. Once a domain is transferred (registered) it cannot be re-registered within 60 days. We did, however, help you point the domain to your new host. After the 60 day period you are welcome to register the domain with anyone you like.
We understand the technical aspects of domain registration can be confusing and we apologize for the inconveneience.
