Transfer domain from whois.com to GoDaddy

I want to transfer domains from my whois.com account to GoDaddy.  As per instructions at whois.com , first i need to apply for transfer at GoDaddy, and then they would receive an intimation from GoDaddy, following which they would sent an email to Registrant Contact of the domain name seeking consent for the transfer.

 

As per instructions from GoDaddy though,  first you need to "unlock" the domain with the current registrar, following which the "unlock the domain" section will be shown in green, and then you can enter the authcode.  In my case this section is shown in YELLOW, with comments that read "A domain lock prevents it from being transferred".

 

My understanding is that the steps suggested by whois.com is their way of "unlocking" the domain, because I dont see any other unlock option in their portal...  Similarly GoDaddy does not seem to give an option to "apply for a transfer-in".  

 

Please advise..

Hi @spooooks,

 

Welcome to the Community!

There can be a few exceptions to a standard domain transfer, based on the TLD (the "dot" ending). In that regard, @MrVapor is correct and a call or chat with GoDaddy may quickly clear up any difficulties. I also thought that this article from whois.com may provide some assistance as well.
