Taking ownership of a domain and adding it to my GoDaddy account

Hi,

 

I've been trawling through the internet and I'm completely stuck with this. I've been asked to build a website for a church and the domain was bought by a third party who is willing to transferring ownership to myself.

 

This isn't something I've dealt with before and he asked for an IPS tag for which I gave him GODADDY. How exactly do I get the domain onto my account?

 

Thanks

Chris

If the 3rd party domain provider has already hosted the domain with Godaddy then, you can move the domain to your Godaddy account Freely.

 

If not then you'll need to pay desired Transfer amount in these you must call Godaddy Customer Support and they can help you better !

 

Please give it a +1 and also click "Mark As Accepted Solution" if you find it satisfactory. Thanking You With Regards | Harry Parmar

Hi Harry,

 

Thanks for the reply. That makes a lot more sense. It appears the domain was registered with InterNetX. Is it godaddy who determine the transfer fee or the seller?

 

Thanks

Re: Taking ownership of a domain and adding it to my GoDaddy account

Yes it's Godaddy !

 

As they are taking ownership of a domain registered somewhere else, a basic charge is required.

 

Also transferring to Godaddy gives you a 1 year of renewal from now.

 

i.e xyz.com is a domain I purchased 6 months ago and still 6 months are remaining, transferring it will make it again 1 year term of your domain.

 

So if you find this helpful please mark this topic as accepted solution. This will help other community members to keep the form clean.

Re: Taking ownership of a domain and adding it to my GoDaddy account

I have purchased a domain from another party and it is in escrow at flippa.com.   The current owner is ready to transfer ownership to me.  I want the domain transferred into my godaddy account.    Who needs to do what to get that done ?

Re: Taking ownership of a domain and adding it to my GoDaddy account

Hi

I'm trying to transfer a domain name to GoDaddy - I have an authorisation code - but when I try and enter it it asked for the transaction ID and that code.  I am taking the order number for the transfer request (from control panel and email) but it keeps saying error.

Am I doing something wrong?!

Thanks for any help

Hi @hallsbells,

 

Just a chance easy solution here from experience, change your web browser. Try doing it with Firefox for example. It just works sometimes.

 

Best of luck!

Re: Taking ownership of a domain and adding it to my GoDaddy account

Thanks @Anonymous</a> - I gave that a try (from Safari to Firefox) - but it's still saying invalid transaction ID

Hmmmm......

I can't help feel (hunch) that it's maybe a copy / paste problem (best starting with the simple stuff first just to rule it out) if you are copying and pasting maybe try just typing it in........ 

 

The only folk who will have access to your account are support. If you keep having problems then perhaps a call to them would sort it out for you.

Good luck.

Re: Taking ownership of a domain and adding it to my GoDaddy account

In case this helps anyone else - I had an updated message from the seller with their own authorisation code and also a GoDaddy reference code (which was different to the transaction reference I had been using.

So that worked!
