Last date to transfer domains out of godaddy



I'm taking some domains out of godaddy as I want to diversify, heard horror stories how some registrars can "delete" your record by accident.


I was informed that I wont be able to transfer out of godaddy if the domain is up for renewal. I'm curious, exactly how many days left til expiry does godaddy block transfers?


Re: Last date to transfer domains out of godaddy

Hi @Karimbo ,


We follow the Registry Rules for each domain extension. For a .COM you can actually go several days past expiration if you haven't made contact updates or something that may lock or flag a potential hijacking (not a recommended way to transfer, as your DNS can go down).



Contact 24/7 Support if you have questions on other domains.


I hope that helps,
