FAQ

Why should I transfer my domains to GoDaddy?

At GoDaddy, Domain transfers are charged per name at a flat fee, so you'll pay nothing beyond this initial cost and ICANN registration, where appropriate. We also let you keep any time left on your current registrations — and throw in a free year of registration for each transfer*. Depending on how many domains you’re moving, this could add up to significant savings.

How do I transfer domains to GoDaddy?

Transferring domains to GoDaddy is simple.

  1. Unlock the domain name you’d like to transfer with your current registrar.
  2. Get an authorization (also known as an EPP code or transfer key) from your current registrar. This isn’t necessary in all cases, such as when transferring country-code domain (ccTLDs). If the authorization code isn't shown in your account manager, ask your current registrar to email them to you.
  3. Verify contact information on your domain name. The administrator's contact information may be used by your current registrar during the transfer process.

You can transfer up to 500 of your domains to GoDaddy at once in our bulk domain transfer tool. If the extension you’d like to transfer isn’t listed, you can’t transfer that domain name to us.

Please note there are special instructions for transferring country-code domains to GoDaddy.

Are there any limits on when I can transfer my domains?

Domains can be transferred almost any time. However, ICANN prohibits domain transfers within 60 days of registration or prior transfer (.au excepted). ICANN policy

Please note there are special instructions for transferring .uk, .ca, .eu, .es, .se and .au domain names to GoDaddy.

Can I check the progress of my domain transfers?

Absolutely. Track the progress of your transfers by following these steps:

  1. Log in to your GoDaddy Transfers Page.
  2. Select Transfers In if the domain is moving to your account. Or, select Transfers Out if the domain is moving from your account.
  3. Select the different tabs to review the details for domains in a particular status. Or, search for your domain in the search bar.
  4. Some statuses require you to take action, and that'll show next to the domain. Check out our guide on domain statuses to help you move forward with your transfer.

You'll see confirmation that your changes have been accepted. Domain transfers usually take 5 to 7 days to complete.

What, and when, will I be charged to maintain my domain?

Upon the expiration of your domain, you will be charged annually to maintain the domain. The price is the then-current annual retail price applicable to the domain.
