How long does it take to transfer a domain from one GoDaddy account to another?

You just want to use your domain for a website you want to build with another host. You don’t need to transfer your domain. You just need to check the DNS (Domain Name Server) the other host uses, go into your GoDaddy account and change your DNS to point to that host. The change takes effect in about 24 hours max.

Does GoDaddy charge to transfer domains?

At GoDaddy, Domain transfers are charged per name at a flat fee, so you pay nothing beyond this initial cost and ICANN registration, where appropriate. We also let you keep any time left on your current registrations — and throw in a free year of registration for each transfer*.

Can a domain be transferred?

Domain is not more than 60 days old or has been transferred within the last 60 days. Per ICANN regulations, a domain that has been newly registered or transferred from one Registrar to another within the last 60 days is not eligible for transfer. Most domains will have a Registrar Lock in place for added security.
