Domain Transfer: Transferring a domain name means that you want a new registrar to maintain the relevant information regarding the domain and the registrant, and transferring a domain name from one registrar to another is possible once registered for 60 days with a registrar. Usually, that's an easy task that doesn't take much time, but according to reviews on the internet, Register.com made transferring domain names almost impossible, by setting up a set of difficult and time consuming business procedures that are customer unfriendly which is a disadvantage.
Domain Renewal: Think of your domain name as something that you rent for a specific period of time, once the time you paid for is over, the domain name is no longer yours to use, that's why users are always careful to renew their registration on time. Usually, this process doesn't happen automatically, which means the registrar is not allowed to renew the registration of any domain name without client authorization. According to some clients at Register.com, that's exactly what the company is doing, the company is providing a service which they call "automatic renewal of payments" , which basically mean that they are renewing the registration, and taking fees without the client's authorization, which also leads to another obsticle if a client wants to transfer the domain to another registrar.
