How to transfer a domain name to another person

Postby admin » Mon Dec 26, 2016 1:55 pm

To transfer the ownership of your domain to another person, you will need to disable (pause) Whois privacy, unlock your domain and retrieve the Extensible Provisioning Protocol ("EPP") code. You will also need to update the domain Whois information to the new owner and give them the EPP code.

For GoDaddy users:

If you are the receiving end, then you'll need to login to your registrar's user account, select "Transfer" from your menu options and once at the transfer page provide the key (EPP code) and pay for the transfer of the domain to your registrar. Fees will depend upon the domain name system level.

After you receive the EPP code or key from the person who, for example, sold you a domain name to you, have paid and filled out the transfer form in your registrar control panel, you will receive an email that will take you to a page where you will complete the domain name transfer:

Apart from unlocking the domain and initiating the transfer process, there is a release transfer stage. As per ICANN it usually takes 5-6 days from the moment you approved the transfer via email from the new registrar.

If the domain holder has an account with GoDaddy.com, he can just go to his account and accept the transfer at this page: https://dcc.godaddy.com/dcc50/default.a ... ransferout
