Having your domain name hosted where you have your website will make it easier to manage it as you will not have to log in to a different user area. You can also use the domain name as a Private DNS or set it up with Google Apps. We will also send you an email when your domain is close to expiration to avoid any downtime due to missed domain renewal.
Once the domain name transfer is completed you can take advantage of our special offer where you can get a free renewal for life.
The domain name transfer takes between 2 and 10 business days and before you start the domain transfer from GoDaddy to FastComet you have to make sure that the following apply:
If the domain name is still under the 60 day lock period you can still point the domain name to the account DNS and use it that way until the lock period is over.
To unlock your domain, log into your GoDaddy account and make sure you have List View enabled, as shown below.
Next to Domains, click Manage.
Here you have to select the domains you wish to unlock and click on the Lock icon.
Then you have to select the OFF radio button and then click on SAVE
Once you have the domain name unlocked you can get the domain EPP/Authorization code.
If Whois Privacy Protection service for the domain is enabled, you will also need to disable it.
You can also speed up the transfer after it has been requested by using the steps below:
It is also important that you are using the correct DNS settings for the domain, as DNS, Whois, contact details can't be changed.
Now you can proceed with the transfer of your domain name by login to your Client Area and click on the Domain Transfer link under the Domains section in your Client Area.
GoDaddy may send you emails that ask you to cancel the transfer and to leave the domain name with them. Most of the cases you can simply ignore them.
