How to Transfer a Domain to Godaddy

Navigate to the home page of the GoDaddy Web site (observe Resources below). This is where you will start transferring your domain. Set aside an uninterrupted 15 minutes to 30 minutes to sit down and make the switch.

Move your mouse within the the green section marked "Domains. " Choose "Transfer a Domain" in the options listed.

Type the name of the domain you're transferring into the available box. Click the lemon "Go" button. Verify whether or not your domain can be obtained for transfer by reading the alert immediately submitted.

Call a "Transfer Concierge" (see Resources below) for those who have any problems or click the "Proceed to Checkout" switch. Pick the level of service you want to buy by checking the box in the corresponding room. Click on the orange "Continue" arrow.

Choose to buy any additional add-ons or simply proceed to checkout. Purchase your purchase online. Keep a record of the actual confirmation information.

Respond in a timely manner towards the approval request email you receive from GoDaddy. Approval in the administrative contact for the domain name is necessary prior to the transfer can be completed. You will also have to approve the transfer again upon contact from your present registrar.


Within 24 hours of starting the transfer process, you should receive an email from GoDaddy that asks you to definitely confirm your intention to transfer the domain title. If you do not receive one, verify with your original registrar that you're listed as the administrative contact for the website name and that your email address is correctly detailed.

Check your contract to make sure there are no fees related to leaving your current domain. If there are, consider whether waiting for the contract to expire or switching saves you money over time.
