Step 5 : Enter the Buyer’s email id registered with their Godaddy. If you have Buyer’s Godaddy Customer/Username then check the “I have” box and enter the id.

There are 3 options under Domain’s contact information. In case if you have access to Customer’s/Buyer’s address details then select “Enter new details” option. Otherwise select “Use details from specified customer account” or “Do not change”.

In case if you wish to let the existing name-servers then check the last option. Click “Next” button

It will take some time [ minutes to hours] before changes are updated and once the change is done, a mail is sent to the Buyer. Buyer has to login to Godaddy account to accept the domain pushed to complete the transaction successfully. Check the below article on how to accept the domain name pushed by seller.


Note :

  • If you are moving the domain name from one account to another account within Godaddy then it is called as “Account Change” or pushing the domain.
  • If you are moving domain name to another registrar , it is referred to “Domain Transfer” , according to Godaddy Naming Conventions.

The above terminology is mentioned so that in case of any issues you can easily check with Godaddy support without getting confused.
