How to Move / Transfer Domain FROM GoDaddy to Another Host (Namecheap)

How to Move / Transfer Domain FROM GoDaddy to Another Host (Namecheap)

I’ll show you how you can move a domain from GoDaddy to another host, like Namecheap. After this video, your domain will be fully transferred to another host and you don’t need to renew your domain at GoDaddy anymore.

Get your domain from NameCheap:

 My website recommendations:

PayPal tip jar:

Before starting the transfer, make sure that below applies to you:

– The domain is more than 60 days old.
– The domain was not transferred between registrars within the last 60 days.
– The domain is “Unlocked” for transfer (“Registrar Lock” is disabled).

How To Transfer or Move A Domain Name To A New Host, Owner, Person, Or Account?

If you want to transfer a domain to a different registrar the follow these steps:

1. Make sure that your domain is not locked and that privacy protection is disabled in the GoDaddy domain dashboard.
2. Wait until you receive the “domain unlock successful” email.
3. Get the domain authorization code from GoDaddy.
4. Go to the other host (or domain registrar) and request a transfer and pay for domain transfer.
5. Accept the domain transfer.
6. Wait until you receive an email from NameCheap that the domain transfer complete. Then you can control the domain from NameCheap.

    Hey, what if i want to change the address before 60 days of their locked registrar policy? Is there a way to do that? My domain was earlier with godaddy and now i have transferred it to wordpress because of convenience and customisation purposes but i cannot install any plugins because it says that my nameserver does not point to
    I will really appreciate your valuable response.

  6. DIEGO CASTANEDA on July 9, 2021 at 9:07 pm

    You didn’t say when you change your contact info, you will be unable to do the transfer because GoDaddy’s Policy. Now, I have to wait 60 days to do the transfer and my domain expired in 45 days. I don’t know what to do. I’m very frustrated.

    Great Video!!! GODADDY is a pure thief they just charge you for 17$ every year for something that worth 8$ per year, I moved my hosting and domains, emails away from them to namecheap!

  9. BF BLETHERING on July 9, 2021 at 9:10 pm

    Great video. I had nothing against the quality of service from GoDaddy but they did away with email forwarders and were pushing premium emails and that is crazy. So many other hosts offer email forwarding. I have settled on Namecheap.

    Pro-tip: If you use the promo code BYEBYEGD when transferring from Godaddy to Namecheap, that’s the best possible deal 😛

  13. Peter Onger on July 9, 2021 at 9:12 pm

    And what about backup DNS settings when you transfering domain from other people?

  14. Jesus Moreno on July 9, 2021 at 9:13 pm

  17. cisshiki on July 9, 2021 at 9:24 pm

  18. Nicola Cammisa on July 9, 2021 at 9:24 pm

    Clear tutorial. Just what I needed … I can’t wait for my current subscription with GoDaddy to get close to its expiry date so that I can finally tell them a kind of goodbye a little more colorful that Arnie’s "Hasta La Vista" 😉

    😕 Hmmm

  32. Elena Perez on July 9, 2021 at 9:43 pm

    Thanks for the fun video! I followed your video to transfer a domain from godaddy to gandi. After your video I read some of the comments below and realise that I didn’t transfer the DNS records before making the transfer. Have I messed up or are they usually automatically transferred? or is it possible to recover them and transfer them? I see the domain is no longer available in godaddy though 😕🤞🏻

  33. Edwin Camacho on July 9, 2021 at 9:47 pm

    Why do you buy from GoDaddy and then transfer to another? Wouldn’t be easier to buy from the cheap one? It may be a stupid question, but I have zero experience buying domains. Thanks for your time.

  34. Rahul VR on July 9, 2021 at 9:49 pm

    Please can you advise, why we need to buy our own domain again while transfering, is it a fee for transferring ?

  35. Pankaj Rawat on July 9, 2021 at 9:49 pm

    Hey great video…. Just one question…
    I have domain at godaddy wanted to transfer it to dynadot.
    My domain is ranking for many keywords on first page. Will it hurt my ranking. If I transfer.

  36. Ramesh Raja on July 9, 2021 at 9:50 pm

    Can anybody answer for my question? ‘What would happen to blog posts if I transfer the domain?’

  37. Aniket Joshi on July 9, 2021 at 9:53 pm

    After transferring the domain to another provider, how to transfer the website to a new host for the same domain, can you please make a video on this?
    i.e in your case you transferred the domain from Godaddy to Namecheap, now if you want to transfer a website from say Godaddy to Namecheap for the same domain you transferred, how would you do that. I hope you understood what I want to say. Please guide me. Thanks
