Transfer domain name from GoDaddy

It has come to the point where I just can’t take it anymore at GoDaddy.  Their in your face buy this and that and I’m not going to let you register a domain without trying to sell you on 50 other things along the way is just too much.  Whenever you do any business with them you need to take special care clicking your way out of their auto opt-in along the way.  If your not careful you will end up with a basket full of stuff you never wanted.

So let’s take a look at how easy it is to move on, say NameCheap for example, I have been using them for a while.  They actually just do what you would think, they take care of your domains without trying to sell you the world.  You can probably get some extra services from them if you look, I’m not sure.

First goto your new registrar and ask for the transfer of your domain.

Goto the GoDaddy my domains, click on the details for a domain, click on locking and unlock it.

While on the details page, click on [Send by Email] next to the Authorization Code text.  In return you will get an email with the EPP key you will need to authorize the transfer at the new register.

Put in the EPP key at the new registar.

I think thats about it, once those steps are followed your domain should move from GoDaddy to it’s new home.
