    Good stuff @spacey -- we're going to add this (and the other one) thread as a blog post as snoopy suggested.

    Hey Paul there is no doubt that Godaddy did most of the work getting it back, whether Verisign had to threaten eName we may never know, but it is a correct result so gotta be happy enough with Godaddy for now, I did thank them and mentioned this could have been avoided in the first place!

    I've heard back from my account rep and they've suggested a solution that I'm happy with for now. I did reiterate though that two-step authentication should be implemented.

    Premier Service clients can access a free security feature called Domain Transfer Validation Security (DTVS). Basically it means that they'll call you if a domain transfer out or change of account is initiated, once you provide a PIN and verbal approval the transfer continues, otherwise it will be declined after 72 hours (3 days).

    This won't solve the problem for people that only have a few domains at GoDaddy, as they won't have access to the DTVS service.

    Yeah my account rep had floated that idea too, wasn't feasible for a number of reasons.
