My domain was lost during a registrar transfer

    A quick history:
    My domain ( was registered and setup through WordPress in late November. In summer 2012, the domain hosting was moved to a private server but the registration remained with WordPress. Over a month ago I attempted to transfer the domain to the registrar over at iPage. The transfer was good to go at both ends (domain unlocked, transfer initiated, confirmation code recieved) and started, but it never completed successfully. There were no service disruptions during the transfer (up until now) and I received no feedback regarding progress.

    The problem:
    Suddenly (today), without any warning or knowledge of the cause, the domain is parked with The only reason as to why this might happen would be if the domain transfer failed, the domain then expired, and now somebody finally purchased it though GoDaddy. Where might I look for resources to solving this issue? Although I understand the domain could have expired, I would have assumed the domain transfer would have been completed.
