Domain Name Transfer Question


#1

Hi Folks,

I’ve searched and found tons of answers about how to move a domain I own with-in, between, and outside of DreamHost.

Here’s my problem. One of my students is finished with their project and wants to transfer the domain name to me. He’s got the domain registered at GoDaddy at the moment. How can I go about initiating a domain name transfer request (that he can approve) to transfer the domain to me and to DreamHost?

It seems the only solution I have at the moment is to create a GoDaddy account, get him to transfer the domain to that GoDaddy account, then use the tools at DreamHost to transfer the domain registration to my account here. Is that really the best solution?

Thank you in advance for any help.

Hi Folks,

Got it sorted. He had to provide me with the EPP code and then I was able to initiate the transfer. Just like most things DreamHost it was actually pretty easy. Can’t believe I haven’t had to do this before now.
