Godaddy.com are great for domains but their domain pushing process can seem overly complicated unless you’ve been through it several times.
(Lately, there appears to have been a glitch whereby if someone pushes a domain to your account, the domain doesn’t appear in the appropriate section (Pending domain changes) and it looks as if it didn’t come through.
Fear not! It’s there! You just have to go through the process.)
Pushing a domain from one Godaddy account to another.
Here’s how to push a domain from your Godaddy account to someone else’s Godaddy account.
Firstly, log into your Godaddy account.
Domains > Manage domains to take you to the domain manager.
Tick the checkbox next to the domain you wish to push to another account. Follow this by clicking ‘Account Change’ (arrowed)
Be certain to use the proper email address as this is where the “Change of Registrant” email will be sent.
Click on “Ok”.
That’s it! The process to push the domain to another account has begun. From your end, nothing further need be done.
How to receive a domain pushed to your Godaddy account
Assuming you have received the “Change of Registrant Pending” email from Godaddy you should follow these steps.
Log into your Godaddy account.
That’s all there is to it!
Simply click through the checkout process (don’t worry, it’s free – i.e. Total: $0.00) and you are done.
You should then receive a confirmation email from Godaddy.com to confirm that the domain name has been transferred to your account.
This process will work even if no domain is showing in the “Pending Account Changes” box so long as you have received the “Change of Registrant Pending” email containing the Transaction ID and Security Code.
