I am moving my domain from Homestead to another host. Site has been hosted at Homestead for many years. I have unlocked domain successfully. Privacy says "No. Add privacy for this domain". Yet WHOIS still shows as private (its been over 3 days), and new host says my "WHOIS might be Private". What do I need to do to make it public?

Hey David1995
I did double check on your domain and privacy has been removed. I think what they are seeing is the GDPR friendly information shown in a Whois. This should not prevent the domain from transferring. Perhaps the company you are transferring to is not familiar with this? Do you know if they have attempted the transfer or did they see that Whois and stop there? I would have them start the transfer.
