I believe many .COM user are familiar with domain transfer simply means transferring between a Registrar to another Registrar. The objective basically allowing new registrar to take over all domain renewal/management and sometimes DNS hosting functions.
It is however different concept with .MY Domain Names (Malaysia)
for .COM , there are hundreds of Major Registrar and all moderated and governed by ICANN. However, for .MY there are basically 1 registrar that are in charge of moderating and governing all .MY extensions , which is MYNIC Berhad (http://mynic.my)
under MYNIC , consider of 70+ Direct Reseller that have direct links to domain name system to register and approve domain name.
So in summary
ICANN --> Registrar --> Reseller --> Customer / Sub reseller
MYNIC --> Reseller --> Customer/ Subreseller
So from the above structure , you can see that .MY will have different process and naming for Domain Transfer/Renew
In .MY terms, simply means by transferring domain ownership (rightful registrant) to another New Owners probably another Company . The process involving deleting the existing domain name and re-register under new Owners. If a Domain still have a validation of 6 months, and after transfer, all remaining months will not transfer to new owner. The New Owner have to make new payment similar to the process of registering a new Domain.
How about Renewal with a different Company/Reseller ??
Renew of Domain name, do not required any Domain Transfer process like unlocking domain, requesting EPP code and etc and etc.
It is simply by login in to http://mynic.my , select "manage domain account " and change the invoicing party to the new Company you would like to make renewal payment.
Only the Administrative or Billing Contact are allowed to make such changes. and if you are not sure who is your Administrative/Billing Contact , just simply make a whois at
