    Checked the video and it made it easier to change over domain, One quick question, do you get to keep the original emails? Or do you need to start again? Where does the email go once you leave the domain (i’m with vistaprint). Many Thanks

    Hi Ryan, I try to transfer the domain from HOSTEK.COM to GODADDY, I did all you say here, but the PENDING TRANSFERS page in the status area, it say’s: Correct Authorization Code Need it!. I dont really know what step I’m right now, it is the last step? do I have to ask HOSTEK to send me the Authorization Code? because the prior webmaster is not longer working with this website there at HOSTEK. Can you give me any advice please…thanks!

    When you are going thru the transfer process will my site still be accessible to viewers? Or will my site be down until the transfer (to godaddy) is complete?

    It’s a nice video, but I can’t seam to find anyone who covers the email aspect of a transfer. I’m transferring a clients domain, will they loose all their email and can anyone send email during the transfer?

    Doing this Domain transfer, what will happen to the emails’ inboxes?

    Incredibly well done video!
    Hoping you can advise on my situation. I’ve got a domain for sale (my first). How is this information applied when transferring my domain to a new owner? It is currently at 123cheapdomains (a reseller for Tucows). There’s no info that I can find in my domain management for transferring out (plenty on transferring *in* from another registrar). At this point I don’t know if a buyer will choose to keep the domain where it is or have it transferred. Either way, I’m trying to prepare myself for those steps.

    Thanks for the great video. I found it very easy to follow.

  26. abdlh on May 26, 2021 at 8:08 am

    @Ryan i have a question, i have renewed my domains in GoDaddy and now i wanted to transfer it to a new registrar. So when i want to make an order transfer on the new registrar, it ask for a renewal(1 year) fee. So meaning the renewal fee that i’ve paid at GoDaddy cant be transferred to the new registrar is it? if yes, i just wasted a lot of money renewing it. Please do help clarify this.

  27. Ricky Garcia on May 26, 2021 at 8:13 am

    Thank you for the info, very helpful!

  36. Duc Pham on May 26, 2021 at 8:26 am

    Thanks for the detailed guide. I subscribed. Today I see the price 8.58USD from namecheap to transfer. Does that include 1 year registration, or is that just the transfer price? If it is not included, how can we check the registration fee (say for 1 year) prior to making the transfer? Furthermore, if my domain has 1 month left before expiration and I transfer it, do I lose the remaining 1 month and must register for one separate year? Tks!

    Thank you Man this video so helpful 🙂

  41. Nikki Glaser on May 26, 2021 at 8:33 am

    This is incredibly helpful. Does it create any issues when my main email is also through the host site that I am transferring away from? Will I lose access to this email account in the process and not receive the confirm emails I need to continue.
