Transferring a domain from a GoDaddy account to the CharlesWorks GoDaddy account

A domain ACCOUNT transfer is the quickest way for us to get the necessary control to handle an existing domain name in a GoDaddy account.

In your GoDaddy interface you simply need to “initiate an account transfer” which can be accomplished like this. Note that GoDaddy changes the look of their interface on a regular basis, so it may be hard to find some of the pieces:

    • In your “All Domains” list check the box to select the domain to be moved to another account
    • Mouse over the gold button with a + sign in it titled “More”
    • Mouse down and click on “Begin Account Change”
    • Enter email address given to you by the CharlesWorks staff in the Email address and reenter the same below it to verify
    • Check the “I have the recipient’s customer account #/username” box
    • Enter the account number given to you by the CharlesWorks staff in the “Customer # /Username (recipient account)” box
    • Click the radio button to select “Use details from specified customer account”
    • Check the box indicating to “Keep the current name servers for this domain”
    • Click on the large green “Next” button
    • Rest of process is self-explanatory
