How to Transfer a Domain Name to eVerity from GoDaddy

Before initiating transfers, you should be aware of the following:
  1. Transferring a domain name from one provider to another does not automatically change the nameserver values, so if you are switching hosts, you should update the nameservers before placing a transfer order.
  2. Domain names may not be transferred within 60 days of when they were registered.
  3. Most registrars will not allow expired domain names to be transferred.
  4. Transfers between registrars can take anywhere from 3 to 10 days to complete. During this time it may not be possible to make changes to the domain name, so make sure that modifications are made before initiating a transfer.
  5. Domain names in "locked" status can not be transferred. Please make sure the domain is unlocked before initiating a transfer, or there could be significant delays.
  6. Domain name transfers are approved through email. Authorization requests are sent to the official administrative contact's email address. Please ensure this is an address you can check before initiating a transfer.

Steps for Transferring a Domain Name to eVerity from GoDaddy

On the GoDaddy end:

  1. Log in to GoDaddy.com
  2. Click "Domains > Domain Manager"
  3. Click the Padlock next to the domain you want to transfer
  4. uncheck the "Lock Domains" box and click "Ok" (this unlocks the domain)
  5. Next to Authorization Code click "Send by Email" and click "Ok"
    (the link is near the bottom left)
On the eVerity end:
  1. Log in to eVerity.com
  2. click "Manage Domains > Transfer a Domain Name"
  3. Type the domain name and Authorization Code where requested
    (The Authorization Code was sent from GoDaddy to your email.)
  4. click Continue
You may have to respond to an email as an added layer of protection against domain hi-jacking. GoDaddy typically approves transfers within 3 to 10 business days. You can click "List Domain Name Transfers" from time-to-time to check on the status of the transfer.
