Transfer from GoDaddy

This page takes you step by step through the procedure for transferring a domain away from Go Daddy and into an account at Caridot.

The transfer process involves the tasks that are described below.

 

To make sure your domain name can be transferred, check the following:

  • The domain name has been registered for at least 60 days, and has been at Go Daddy for at least 60 days.
  • The Registrant contact information has not changed for at least 60 days.
  • The domain name is not in "client update prohibited" status.
 

Before you can transfer a domain, the Administrative contact information (especially the email address) must be up-to-date at Go Daddy, because the Administrative contact receives the transfer request and okays the transfer.

Note: Go Daddy regards any changes to the Registrant contact information to be an "internal transfer" and will reject any transfer requests for 60 days after changes to the Registrant contact information. We recommend that you leave Registrant contact information as-is at Go Daddy. As long as either the Registrant or Admin email address is correct and you're using the Auto Verification method, you can make any needed changes once the domain name has successfully transferred to Cariby.

To update the Administrative contact at Go Daddy:

  1. Log on to your account at GoDaddy.com.
  2. On the "Domains" menu, click "My domain names".
  3. Click the domain name you want to transfer.
  4. If the Administrative contact information is incorrect, click the "edit" link next to the Administrative contact at the bottom of the page.
  5. Update the Administrative contact information and click "OK".
 

Some TLDs require that you provide an authorization code for your domain name, to provide an extra level of assurance that the transfer request comes from an authorized source.

  1. On the "My domain names" page, click the domain you want to transfer.
  2. In the "Domain Information" section, find the "Authorization Code" row and click "Send by email".
  3. Click "OK".

Transfers of TLDs other than those named above do not require any codes or tags.

 

Before you can transfer a domain name away from Go Daddy, it must be unlocked. Locking is a feature most registrars offer to prevent unauthorized transfers (hijacking) of domain names.

To unlock:

  1. On the "My domain names" page, click the domain name you want to transfer.
  2. In the "Domain Information" section, find the "Locked" row and click "Manage".
  3. Select the "Unlock domains" check box and click "OK".
 

Once you have prepared the domain name at Go Daddy, you're ready to transfer to Caridot.
