Unlock my domain for transfer

Unlock your domain to prepare for a transfer to a new registrar. Domains aren't eligible for transfer to another registrar if they're within 60 days of registration or a previous transfer, or if a customer opted-in to apply a 60-day transfer lock after a Change of Registrant

  1. Log in to your GoDaddy Domain Control Center. (Need help logging in? Find your username or password.)
  2. Check the box next to the domain(s) you'll be unlocking. Or, click the check mark icon and Select All
  3. Select Settings > Unlock Domains.
  4. Check the box next to Yes, I consent to unlock the selected domain(s). then select Continue.

    Note: If you have Ownership Protection on your domain, you'll need to verify your identity. We'll send a verification code via SMS or authenticator app if you've had two-step verification (2SV) enabled in your account for more than 72 hours. Otherwise, select Send Password to send a one-time password to your registrant email address.

You'll see a Success confirmation once your changes have been accepted. Please allow up to 90 minutes for the unlock to process.
