We're waiting for a domain to be transferred in, and the current status is as above. My query is what does this actually mean - are we waiting for the other provider to release it, or for some master registrar to say 'OK'!
just a query!!
When the domain is in this state it means that we have requested the transfer from the current hosts and we are waiting from a response from the registrar to know if this has been successful or if the transfer has failed.
There's nothing we can do to speed it up at this stage.
