Transferring Your GoDaddy Domain to Another GoDaddy Account
Note: When transferring your domain you do not need or should give the password to the account being transferred into.
- Within your GoDaddy domain list click on domain name you wish to transfer.
- Scroll to the bottom section labeled Additional Settings and click on Transfer domain to another GoDaddy account.
- Enter in the email address you are transferring to.
- Re-enter in the email address you are transferring to.
- Enter in the Customer # if you know it.
- Note: For your safety and an extra validation this is strongly recommended as it ensures you don't transfer the domain to the wrong email address.
- To speed the process set the question of Do you want to copy the current domain contact information to the new account? to Yes. You can change this later in the process.
- Click on Transfer Domain.
- Note: You will receive a green success box that says "Your transfer request is in progress. We have sent an email to DOMAIN EMAIL YOU TRANSFERRED TO. The recipient will need to click on the activation link in the email message to accept the domains into their account. After the transfer is completed, the domains will no longer display in your domains list.".
Note: The account that is being transferred to will now receive an email from GoDaddy to Approve the transfer. Click on the Activate Transfer button/link that is received, confirm the information (if asked), and the domain will now be fully transerred into the account.
Updating Your Contact Information
Now that your domain has been transferred into GoDaddy the following steps should be done to make certain that everything is setup for your organization.
- In your Domains list click on Manage for the domain you wish to update.
- In the Contact Information there will be a button to the right labeled Edit. Click on that button.
- To keep things simple you can leave checked Use for all contact types.
- If you know you have a different person doing the billing then we recommend unchecking this and setting the billing information up.
- The other main reason for unchecking is for the technical contact who is typically your IT department or Webmaster.
- Fill in all of the information as completely as possible.
- At the bottom click on Save to save your changes.
Updating Your Payment Information
This is by far the most important area as it makes certain your domain is renewed each year (or the interval you've chosen). Make certain to keep track of the credit card, checking account, or PayPal, account you are using and any expiration dates. 90-days before the renewal you will start receiving reminders of the upcoming renewal.
- In the top right click on your username (or email address).
- Click on Renewals & Billing.
- Check the box next to each of your domains.
- Click on Update Payment.
- Click on New Payment Method.
- Fill in all of your contact information and click Save.
- Enter in your credit card, checking account, or PayPal information.
- Click on Save to save your changes.
