    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
