How much does it cost to transfer a domain name from godaddy

Transferring domains to GoDaddy is simple. Follow these directions or watch our step-by-step video, where our GoDaddy Guides lead you through the process.

  1. Unlock the domain name you’d like to transfer with your current registrar.
  2. Get an authorization (also known as an EPP code or transfer key) from your current registrar. This isn’t necessary in all cases, such as when transferring country-code domain (ccTLDs). If the authorization code isn’t shown in your account manager, ask your current registrar to email them to you.
  3. Verify contact information on your domain name. The administrator’s contact information may be used by your current registrar during the transfer process.

You can transfer up to 500 of your domains to GoDaddy at once in our bulk domain transfer tool. If the extension you’d like to transfer isn’t listed, you can’t transfer that domain name to us.

Please note there are special instructions for transferring country-code domains to GoDaddy.

Transfer my domain away from GoDaddy

Transfer your domain from GoDaddy to another registrar by using our transfer away checklist. If your domain has Domain Privacy turned on, we’ll turn it off prior to transferring away so your domain contact info is available to your new registrar.

  1. Sign in to your GoDaddy Domain Portfolio. (Need help logging in? Find your username or password.)
  2. Select the specific domain you’ll be transferring to access the Domain Settings page.

  3. Under Additional Settings select Transfer domain away from GoDaddy.
    • You can’t transfer a domain within 60 days of new registration or transfer from another registrar, or, in some cases within 60 days of changing the first or last name, organization, or email address of the domain contact info.
  4. Review the transfer checklist details for additional info.
    • If you’re transferring a .UK domains, enter the IPS tag for your new registrar, then select Complete Transfer.
  5. Select Continue with transfer.
    • Domain Privacy will be turned off after you complete the next step to make sure your domain contact info is transferred to the new registrar.
    • If your domain has Domain Protection, you’ll need to verify your identity. If you’ve had two-step verification (2SV) turned on for at least 24 hours, enter the code we sent via SMS, or enter the code from your authenticator app. Otherwise, enter the one-time password we sent to your registrant email address.
  6. (Optional) Select Click here to see Authorization Code, then Copy to Clipboard to copy your authorization code. We’ll also send an email with your auth code to the administrative email address on your domain name.
  7. Select My Domains to go back to your list of domains.

Finish the transfer process with your new registrar and provide them with the authorization code for your domain name. Check the status of your transfer any time.

  • Transfers typically take 5-7 days to complete, but you can help the process by approving the transfer.
  • Create and download an exportable list to get the auth codes for multiple domains at once.
  • Continue managing DNS through GoDaddy, by adding DNS Hosting after the transfer is complete.
