This demo assumes you have a domain name registered through godaddy.com and starts from their home page.

Domain name transfers must be initiated at the new registrars website, that is, the website for the registrar where you want your domain name transferred to.

However, you must first insure that your domain name is not being locked, or being prevented from transferring away from this registry.

Enter your godaddy.com USER NAME and PASSWORD in the boxes provided.


Click the MY ACCOUNT link.

Click the MANAGE DOMAINS LINK on the left side of the screen.

Click on the DOMAIN NAME you wish to transfer.

Click the CHANGE link next to the “Locked” setting.

Select UNLOCK and click OK.

That’s it! The lock has been removed from the domain name so it may be transferred to another registry.

You must now go to the domain name site you wish to transfer to and initiate a TRANSFER REQUEST.

You now know how to unlock of domain names, thus enabling you to transfer them away from godaddy.com
