Step 3: Get the approval code

In order to complete the domain transfer, you will need an authorization code from your existing registrar.

Before you click "Get Authorization Code", please confirm the correct email address you updated with GoDaddy.

If the email is going to [email protected], this means that your email is not properly configured in the Goddess to get the authorization code. So, please contact Godaddy well and correct it.

GoDaddy lets you click on the "Get Authorization Code" to match the authorization code and domain information.
