How to Transfer Domain to Dreamhost?


I have been using Dreamhost for about 5 years and decided to transfer another domain over here. It is currently with Go Daddy. I clicked on the transfer and entered the authorization code that Go Daddy gave me. The e-mail is received and I accept.

This is where it ends. The domain transfer pending disappears from my dreamhost account and that is the end of it. I have tried to do this a few times over the past few weeks.

I have had the domain at Go Daddy since December 2010 so I don’t see the issue with that.

Anyone have any idea what I can try next?


It should be quite straight forward.

I’ll suggest you to contact DH support.


Got it. The transfer was blocked by Go Daddy despite 3 phone calls to them.
