You’ll learn how, in addition to keeping more cedis in your pocket, transferring to Aveshost can be a smooth and hassle-free process that sets you up for success and security in the ever-evolving digital space. Let’s begin your journey to a more economical and transparent hosting experience, starting with the simple steps to move your domain to Aveshost.
Step 1: Prepare Your Domain for Transfer
Before you transfer your domain from GoDaddy to Aveshost, there’s a bit of housekeeping to take care of. Ensuring your domain is ready for transfer is crucial, so pay attention to these points:
- Unlock Your Domain: Log in to your GoDaddy account and ensure your domain is not locked. A locked domain is a no-go for transfer.
- Update Contact Information: Verify that your administrative contact information is up-to-date because Aveshost will contact you through that info.
- Disable Privacy Protection: If you have privacy protection enabled, disable it temporarily for the transfer process.
- Obtain the EPP Code: This is the authorization code and it’s as important as a passport for your domain’s transfer.
- Check Domain Age: Make sure your domain is at least 60 days old, which is a mandatory waiting period imposed by ICANN.
GoDaddy Account Login:
Log in to your GoDaddy account and scroll to the middle of the page and click on “Manage All“.
Disable Domain Privacy & Unlock Domain
On the domain portfolio page, turn off domain privacy. Disable the lock to unlock the domain. It is essential for these settings to be turned off for the transfer to go through.
On that same page under the “Domain Name” click on the domain you want to transfer.
Domain Setting Page
On this page, scroll down to the bottom, and again, ensure that your domain privacy and domain lock are turned off. Now, click on ‘Transfer to Another Registrar.“
Domain Transfer Out
On this page, follow the steps to obtain your Auth code or EPP code. Click on the “Continue with transfer” button to proceed with the code.
Step 2: Verify Domain Transfer Eligibility
Verify that your domain is eligible for transfer by checking that it has not been transferred in the last 60 days. Also, check for any outstanding payments with GoDaddy – you’ll need to settle these before proceeding.
Step 3: Transferring to Aveshost
After obtaining your auth code, it’s time to initiate the transfer process to Aveshost. Navigate to the Aveshost website, scroll to the bottom of the page to the footer, and click on “Domain Transfer“.
Step 4: Initiate the Transfer to Aveshost & Authorize the Transfer
Enter your domain name and initiate the transfer process by confirming you’ve completed all preparation steps. A modal or popup would appear enter the Auth code or the code you obtained from GoDaddy when prompted.
Step 5: Domains Configuration
On the next page, you will be presented with some optional domain add-ons. Select the ones you may be interested in. I highly recommend choosing ID Protection; this is a security feature that protects the information associated with your domain name.
Step 6: Confirm Transfer Details
Review the transfer details carefully. Ensure that the domain information is accurate.
Step 7: Sign In/Sign Up with Aveshost
If you are an existing customer with Aveshost, log in with your details. If you are new, fill in your information to create an account. Accept the terms of service and click on the checkout button to proceed with the checkout.
Step 8: Pay for the Domain Transfer
Complete the payment process for the domain transfer. Aveshost may charge a fee for the transfer, which may include an extension of your domain registration. You are paying for the transfer because when you transfer a domain to a new registrar, such as Aveshost, the registration period for the domain is extended by one year.
Step 9: Approve the Transfer
Once Aveshost has initiated the transfer request, GoDaddy will send you an email to acknowledge it:
- Log in to your GoDaddy account or check your email and approve the transfer.
- Remember, you have five days to approve the transfer before the request expires.
Step 10: Wait Patiently
Transferring a domain isn’t instant. It typically takes between 5 and 7 days for the transfer to complete. Take this time to familiarize yourself with Aveshost’s hosting environment.
Step 11: Verify Transfer Completion
After the waiting period:
- Check your email for a confirmation from Aveshost.
- Verify that your domain shows up in your Aveshost account dashboard.
