Get an authorization code to transfer my domain to GoDaddy
To transfer a domain name from your current domain registrar to GoDaddy, you will need an authorization code (also known as an EPP code or transfer key). This code is provided by your current domain registrar. If your domain is already registered with GoDaddy, you can transfer your domain name to another registrar.
Each registrar has their own process for providing or displaying the authorization code for domains. You may be able to locate your code within your account at your registrar, or you might receive the authorization code to the administrative contact's email address for your domain name. We recommend reviewing the process with your current registrar to obtain your authorization code.
- Once you have your authorization code, you can transfer your domain name to GoDaddy.
- Some domains have special requirements for authorization codes.
- To transfer a .UK domain name, you will need to request an update to the IPS tag.
