Move Domain Ownership From One GoDaddy Account to Another
Edited by MsBarbs, Dougie-1, Eng
Today we are going to be discussing how you can transfer a domain name, that you own, to another person within the same registrar. This video is going to pertain to the GoDaddy registrar. This is different than transferring a domain name to another person which we will discuss in a separate video.
Go to GoDaddy's website.
To get started with what we need to do is go to GoDaddy's website
. We will click on the shortcut that we have on our desktop. Once clicked, it will open the GoDaddy page for us.
As you can see here we've got our GoDaddy account.
We are going to click on 'sign in'. Which will sign us into Go Daddy. You can also register if you haven't registered, but for our purposes we are going to sign in.
Let's key in our username which is VisiHow. Then we are going to enter our password, which is a secret. Then click on 'sign in'. This will take us to our dashboard where we can see all of our domain names and our account information.
Click on 'domains'.
We are going to go down and click on domains. That is going to open up our domain window and let us see all of our domain names. Give that a moment to load in.
As you can see we are going to use the 'infinityco.com' domain name.
That domain name is registered for a bit longer.
We are going to click 'launch'.
Launch is going to open up a window where we can see the infinityco.com domain name. See all of the info on the right side there and some more details about the domain itself.
We're going to click on 'account change' because were not were not transferring it were just changing the account.
We are going to change that to someone else's ownership. We are going to go ahead and click on that.
That opens us up now with infinityco.
What we need to do here is we are moving the domain name. So, we're going to put in the email address of the person who is receiving the domain name. As I said before this is different than a transfer, because it's internal.
Let's type in the email address of the recipient account:
info@Visihow.com. Go ahead and type it in again same: info@Visihow.com.
Check the box for 'we do have the customer's account number and username'.
You should have this information. You don't have to have it, but it's useful if you do have it. So we are going to enter in the customer number. If you have a username instead of a customer number that also works.
The 'domain contact information', were actually not going to change this, we are going to use details from specified customer account.
This works for our purposes because it lets the customer keep things the way they have it.
'Name server settings', we are not getting change that unless they are hosting it themselves.
Then were going to click on next, and that's when take us to the next area. Get this validated. This could take a minute.
This is part two of three.
As you can see, there these are the things that we're going to lose. This is a domain name that's been registered for long time so there are some free things that Go Daddy offers. They are just letting us know that we are going to lose these free things. Most of those may be useless if you know how to code a website or do anything.
'Services that may be disrupted'.
This is should be obvious for anyone who's doing this you might lose any "for sale" pages etc. etc.
'Change of contact info agreement'.
Of course we have read this and we understand it, and were going to click finish.
Okay, there's a little pop-up 'change account ownership'.
This has happened. You should now receive an email in your inbox that will let you know that this domain has been moved to the new account. It's not actually a transfer is just a move. When the domain is moved you will get an email and that's it. Everything will be taken care of from there.
Let us know in the comment's section if you need any more information or need help with domains.
Have a great day.
