Transfer code not working in GoDaddy

    I have begun the transfer process to move my domain to GoDaddy, and the code generated is not recognized as correct when I put it in at GoDaddy. Requesting a new code simply gets a resend of the same one. I tried cancelling and initiating the transfer process and again got the same code. How do I get a new code?

    Hi @jenation!

    I looked into this as I myself have seen a few quirks in transferring domains to GoDaddy here in the last few months. This link:

    has been able to help me as well as a few others iron out wrinkles in the transfer process to them. This particular part:

    Note: If you purchased a domain before 5/26/17, you may still need to complete these steps to authorize your transfer.

    is important as I checked your domain at a WHOIS lookup and it shows you registered your domain on 05-12-2017. Be sure to complete the steps in the above link, and that your domain is unlocked and try again. If it still is not working we can summon a staff member to this thread with the modlook tag.

    Please let me know how it goes! :)


    Hi jenation,

    What is the exact error message you are seeing when you give GoDaddy the transfer code for Do you GoDaddy give you any indication as to why the code is being rejected?

    If you let me know I can look into this for you.
