I'm trying to transfer my registrar away from WordPress.com to godaddy.com for the domain http://www.lowmoonoverhightown.com (I'm still going to keep my wordpress blog just intergrate it into a new Big Cartel site).
Anyhow, I've started the transfer, bought the domain transfer with godaddy.com and followed the instructions on WordPress. Where I'm stuck is with the following instruction:
8. Select the domain you want to transfer. Note that you will not see the domain listed in the Pending Transfers section until you complete the transfer initiation steps at your new registrar. This usually includes following the steps in a transfer authorization email sent to the domain name’s administrative contact. Make sure you complete those steps with your new registrar before checking the Pending Transfers section in your current domain manager here at WordPress.com.
I've completed the steps with godaddy.com but they've sent me an email stating:
To complete this transfer, we need approval of the administrative contact for this domain name. However, the administrative email address obtained from your current registrar is invalid, or could not be obtained.
The current administrative email address is . [THIS IS BLANK - MY TYPING]
On my wordpress DNS account the admin email is listed as: [email redacted].
This isn't the same as the hotmail account associated with my wordpress account (which still recieves email fine, such as the authorisation code for transfers etc)
I think I might need to take off the privacy settings on my wordpress.com account so that godaddy.com can access my information but I don't know how to do that?
Be great if someone can help!
The blog I need help with is lowmoonoverhightown.com.
