Transferring domain name to Godaddy / How much will it cost

I want to know how much will it cost if I need to transfer the domain name : www.drdarakh.com

It is at present with some other registrar.


Whenever I try to find the cost from Godaddy website it says there is an error and try again later.

Thanks in advance for all help.

Re: Transferring domain name to Godaddy / How much will it cost

I just transferred and renewed the domain name www.drdarakh.com (around 10 minutes ago).

When will I be able to see it on my records and how much time will it take for the transfer to materialize.

Please also provide an email address ( of godaddy) where we can send queries and also their helpline number.

@Veerendra Have you received and approve the authorization emails from your current registrar and Godaddy? If so, the domain will be transferred to your Godaddy account within 6-7 days.

Re: Transferring domain name to Godaddy / How much will it cost

Yes I have received a confirmation from GoDaddy.

Hopefully now my domain will be transferred to GoDaddy within the next 6 to 7 days.

Is there anything that I can do to expedite the process.

@Veerendra Some registrars allow you to release the domain name from them, you'll have to check with your old registrar.

Re: Transferring domain name to Godaddy / How much will it cost

Dear all,

I had transferred the domain name when it was in redemption period.

I called my registrar today morning. There the call centre guy told me that if you receive the authorization code than the domain can be transferred.

I had received the authorization code and I fed that code in GoDaddy system. GoDaddy accepted it and it billed my credit card also.

Now I have received the following message by email:

This is in reference to your query for the Transfer out request for domain drdarakh.com, we would like to update you that as the current status of domain is Status: redemptionPeriod, so the domain cannot be transferred out/Tranferred In, Hence we suggest you to kindly contact to your account manager and place the restoration order for domain, 

 

Please let me know what is to be done.

@Veerendra Basically you'll need to contact your old registrar and have them restore/renew the domain name. There will be a cost associated with us but its your only option at this point.

Re: Transferring domain name to Godaddy / How much will it cost

How many days is the redemption period ? What my old registrar has said that after the redemption period is over the domain name is once again free.

During the redemption period also it can be renewed but the cost is more than 10 times ( not 10% please note ) more.

 

Is it possible that I continue with the site with a slightly changed website name . Right now it is www.drdarakh.com. I could take www.drveerendradarakh.com.

 

Please let me know.

Re: Transferring domain name to Godaddy / How much will it cost

Another thing which is beyond my comprehension is that if the domain name is in the redemption period how did I get the authorization code from www.net4.in .

It was accepted by GoDaddy. GoDaddy has even billed me and sent me a confirmatory email and provided me with an order number.

Now I am told that that the domain cannot be transferred in the redemption period.

 

I also want to know what is the procedure after the redemption period. Once the domain name becomes free ,will it be picked up automatically by GoDaddy.

 

Please help.

Re: Transferring domain name to Godaddy / How much will it cost

I do not understand how GoDaddy accepted my domain name transfer ( from net4.in) when it was in the redemption period. When I called the GoDaddy helpline they told me that the transfer will materialize in 5 days.

I called the net4 helpline and they told me that domain cannot be transferred in the redemption period , ( although they provided me with the authorization code for transfer ) and now I will have to wait for 60 to 90 days till the redemption period is over and the domain name is again free.

I do not know what to do .

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

@Veerendra This is an issue with your losing registrar. There is literally nothing I or Godaddy can do. If Godaddy initiated the transfer thats really all they can do on their end.

Re: Transferring domain name to Godaddy / How much will it cost

At least there should have been a message when I was transferring domain name to GoDaddy  that the domain name will be transferred only after the redemption period is over.

Also net4.in tells me that after the redemption period is over the domain name will be free. I do not know whether the domain name will than  be automatically picked up by GoDaddy..

net4.in also did not tell me when the redemption period will be over. The call center executive told me that the redemption period is 30 to 90 days.

@kogweno  you'll need to unlock the domain and request the authorization/EPP code from your current registrar. You can then initiate the transfer here: https://www.godaddy.com/domains/bulk-domain-transfer.aspx?isc=cjc1off30
