Transfer domain away from GoDaddy (disabled) Transfer available on 5/2/18

Hello all, 

I have 6 domains I would like to transfer away from GoDaddy. However, I cannot do so and there is not too much info about why.

"Transfer domain away from GoDaddy (disabled)

Transfer available on 5/2/18 "


How can I fix this issue ?


Note: some of those domain will be expire soon, in some cases on 3/5/2018.


Thank you

Hello @faisalalazemi, there is a great video availible at Transfer my domain to GoDaddy and Transfer domain to another registrar. Also have a look at Domain Name Transfer FAQ 


That information was generic by design but to your specific issue @faisalalazemi it sounds like you are running into a ICANN transfer policy rule?


You are not eligible to transfer a domain for a 60-day period after the following events:

• Registering or transferring a domain name
• Updating the registrant contact's organization
• Updating the registrant contact's first or last name and an organization is not listed


There are some additional transfer requirements but yours seems like ICANN and GoDaddy has no control over that. Have a look at ICANN Domain Name Transfers. I hope that helps?

...turns out that my two cents is worth less or more depending on the current exchange rate.
