Domain Transfer: GoDaddy

This demo assumes you have a domain name registered through, and starts from their home page

Now let’s learn how to transfer your domain name away from this registrar, and into the domain registry of your choice

Domain name transfers must be initiated at the new registrars website…. that is, the website for the domain registrar where you want your domain name transferred to

However, you must first ensure that your domain name is not locked, or being prevented from being transferred out of this registry….. and that’s what we’re going to do now…..

1) Enter your account Login Name and Password in the boxes here

2) Then click the Go button

You are now logged in to your account

3) Click the Domain Manager link here

4) Then click on the domain name you wish to manage

5) Click the Manage link next to “Locked”

6) Uncheck the box next to Lock Domains

7) Click OK when finished

Next, click the Send by Email option next to Authorization Code.

That’s it! The lock has been removed from the domain name and you should have revived a copy of the authorization code. It can now be transferred to Site5!

You can now logon to Backstage and request the domain transfer!
