Transfer a domain to GoDaddy

What is the process to follow to transfer a domain from Afrihost to GoDaddy?


Re: Transfer a domain to GoDaddy

Hi @Siliken,


Welcome to the Community!

The transfer-in process is very unique for .CO.ZA. The 60-day transfer lock doesn't apply, and as the Registry does not extend the registration term, there is only a charge for 1 year of registration. An authorization code may be needed if you are transferring away from Hexonet aka 1 Api GmbH, or one their partners. Otherwise the authorization code is not required and this field can be left blank to further authorize the transfer from your account.


Once the transfer is authorized in your account it will trigger an e-mail voting procedure. An e-mail will be sent from the Registry to each Whois contact (Owner, Admin, Tech, and Billing). At least one party has to APPROVE for a successful transfer. The transfer will fail if at least one party denies the transfer. If there are NO votes received (APPROVE or DENY), the domain will not be transferred. If the transfer is not accepted in 5 days, the .CO.ZA transfer will fail.


If you watch for the email for this approval, vote "approve" (and no other votes are made), the domain will be delivered to your GoDaddy account.
