Transfer my domain away from GoDaddy

You can transfer your domain away from GoDaddy and to another registrar at any time. Follow our transfer checklist below and we'll automatically prepare your domain for a transfer away.

You can also manually prepare for a transfer away by completing a few actions.

Note: Domains can't be transferred within 60 days of new registration, transfer, or contact info change if the current registrant opted to apply a 60–day lock when approving the changes. Domains that are part of a bundle can't be transferred within 120 days of new registration.
  1. Sign in to your GoDaddy Domain Portfolio. (Need help logging in? Find your username or password.)
  2. Select the specific domain you'll be transferring.

  4. Review the transfer checklist details for additional info.
    Important: Domain Privacy will be turned off after you complete the next step. This is to make sure your domain contact info is transferred to the new registrar.
  5. Select Continue with transfer.
    • If your domain has Domain Protection, you'll need to verify your identity. If you've had two-step verification (2SV) turned on for at least 24 hours, enter the code we sent via SMS, or enter the code from your authenticator app. Otherwise, enter the one-time password we sent to your registrant email address.
  6. (Optional) Select Click here to see Authorization Code, and then select Copy to Clipboard to copy your authorization code. We'll also send an email with your auth code to the administrative email address on your domain name.
  7. Select My Domains to go back to your list of domains.

Don't forget to unlock your domain before continuing the process with your new registrar.
