Move a domain to another GoDaddy account

If you want to move a domain name from one account with us to another, you're in the right place to get started - it's called an Account Change. If you need to move a domain name to a different registrar, see Transfer domain to another registrar.

Required: If you've just added Protected Registration and enabled two-step verification on your account, you must wait 72 hours AND cancel Protected Registration before moving your domain to another GoDaddy account.
After you complete the following steps, we send the owner of the receiving account an email with instructions to confirm the move. The recipient must confirm the domain name move within 10 days. After that time, the transaction times out and you must reinitiate it. For instructions on confirming a domain name move, see Accepting domain account changes (step #13 below).

Note: A domain name must be in active status to change accounts. If a domain is in active status but past its expiration date, it will not allow the account change to be initiated. Domains that change accounts will have a 10-day transfer lock for fraud protection.

Newly registered .info domains have a 5-day hold period before a Change of Account can be initiated.

  1. Log in to your GoDaddy account.
  2. Next to Domains, click Manage.

How you move your account will depend on the view of your account.
