lnrivera,

That means that the group or individual that registered the name has prohibited the name from being transfered.  This can be changed by the registar only.  It really is just a lock, no matter what you would need permission from the registar to get the domain.

Let me know if you have any questions or need more information.

I see some information about epp Status in

http://www.wdbc.com/domain/status-codes.cfm

It's possible that this domain with CLIENT TRANSFER PROHIBITED status, are in problems with another owner of this dot.com?

This domain will experired in 50 days, it's possible to register by another person, then it's free in 50 days?

Thank you

That status doesn't mean that there is someone else with rights to it or that there is a disagreement over them.  It is just a way for the registar to obviously protect the domain.

It doesn't happen that quick.  There is a period when the registar can still renew and then there is a time when it is possible for the name registrar of the domain to sell it.  After that it is normally openly available for purchase often through a drop registrar.

I hope this helps.
