How to Transfer a Domain from IX Hosting to GoDaddy?

April 9th, 2013 · No Comments · Blogging Tips, WordPress Tips

Two years ago I signed up to IX Hosting just to try out their Expert Plan and I got a free domain. Time flies! Now it is almost time to decide whether stay with them or not. Their CPanel is different than others. Since I already have most of my domains with GoDaddy and hosted with Hostgator, I will transfer my domain I’ve got free with IX Hosting. Although I am a happy customer with both of IX Hosting and Hostgator, honestly I do like Hostgator better. It is so easy for me to moving things around and do what I need to do. Now Godaddy let me transfer my domain from only $0.99 & Free 1-yr extension. The following steps describe how I transfer my free domain fro IX Hosting to GoDaddy:

On IX Hosting site:

  • I  logged in IX hosting account. From there I clicked on Manage My Domain Reg(s). See below: An Image of Manage My Domain
  • It led me to a new page. I then click to unlock my domain (it is needed for transfer). See below: An Image of Unlock Domain
  • On the same page, I clicked on Settings under Actions, see below: An Image of Actions Settings
  • An extended page open, I then clicked on Domain Overview. See below: An Image of Domain Overview
  • It led me to a page that allows me to get an authorization code (it is needed for domain transfer) by click on a button Send Auth Code. See below:  An Image of Send Autorization Code
  • Now check your email to make sure you get the authorization code.

Next on GoDaddy website.

  • First I logged in Godaddy site, and click on Find Your Domain. See below: An Image of Find Your Domain
  • Next clicked on Transfer Domain link. See below: An Image of Transfer Domains
  • Then typed the domain to be transfer in the text field and click GO. See below: An Image of Type Domain Name
  • It led me to the next screen. See below: An Image of Domain Transfer
  • I clicked on Proceed to Checkout. It led me to a couple of offers. See below: An Image of Offers
  • I just skipped all the offers and clicked on Continue button a couple times.
  • Now I just paid my $0.99 plus ICNN fee $0.18 with GoDaddy code CM99COM
  • After that GoDaddy showed we’ve sent emails to xxxxxx@gmail.com with important information about your new purchases.
  • Login to GoDaddy, click My Account.
  • In the My Account section under Domain Related, select Domain Transfers.
  • Select the transfers to restart, and then click Restart Transfer to proceed.
  • Clicked Launch, it led to the next screen.
  • Clicked Restart Transfer, then it popuped and said “To restart your domain transfer request, click OK.”
  • Then GoDaddy would show this: When we’re done, we’ll send your Transfer IDs to your admin email address. Be sure to check your spam folders. This usually takes less than 5 minutes. However, this can take up to 30 minutes to reach your inbox. These time frames are estimates and not guaranteed.
  • Next click Authorize Transfer button, a popup window showed up. See below: An Image of Authorize Transfer
  • Filled in Transaction ID and Security Code (you should get them from your admin email that GoDaddy had sent to you), and clicked Next
  • A new popup showed up. See below: Another Image of Authorize transfer
  • Next entered Authorization Code that you got earlier from IX hosting, ticked next to “I authorize the transfer of all domains in this list not on hold”, and clicked Next.
  • Next the popup screen showed up: An Image of Final Note
  • Then clicked OK.

In about a week GoDaddy will send an email to you saying your domain transferred successfully.
