Posted by , Last modified by on 22 March 2013 10:11 AM
This page takes you step by step through the procedure for transferring a domain away from Go Daddy and into an account at DNN4Less.
The transfer process involves the tasks that are described below. Following the transfer tasks, we provide information about tracking the progress of the transfer, and ICANN rules regarding rejections.
Transfer Task 1: Verify that the domain name is eligible for transfer
To make sure your domain name can be transferred, check the following:
Transfer Task 2: Update Administrative contact information
Before you can transfer a domain, the Administrative contact information (especially the email address) must be up-to-date at Go Daddy, because the Administrative contact receives the transfer request and okays the transfer.
Note: Go Daddy regards any changes to the Registrant contact information to be an "internal transfer" and will reject any transfer requests for 60 days after changes to the Registrant contact information. We recommend that you leave Registrant contact information as-is at Go Daddy. As long as either the Registrant or Admin email address is correct and you're using the Auto Verification method, you can make any needed changes once the domain name has successfully transferred to DNN4Less.
To update the Administrative contact at Go Daddy:
Transfer Task 3: Obtain the authorization code or retag the domain name
Some TLDs require that you provide an authorization code for your domain name, to provide an extra level of assurance that the transfer request comes from an authorized source.
To transfer a .com, .net, .org, .info, or .biz domain name, obtain the authorization code from Go Daddy:
To retag a .uk domain name:
Transfers of TLDs other than those named above do not require any codes or tags.
Transfer Task 4: Unlock the domain name
Before you can transfer a domain name away from Go Daddy, it must be unlocked. Locking is a feature most registrars offer to prevent unauthorized transfers (hijacking) of domain names.
Transfer Task 5: Transfer the domain name to DNN4Less
Once you have prepared the domain name at Go Daddy, you're ready to transfer to DNN4Less. Reply to the message you received from DNN4Less Support with the Domain Transfer Authorization Code.
When the domain name contacts receive email from DNN4Less asking them to approve the transfer, do so by following the instructions in the email.
Note: To decide whether to use the Auto Verification or Fax transfer method, weigh the following considerations:
