    Looking at there FAQ there doesn't seem to be an answer, that i can find about transferring a domain to another registrar, it does go about transferring to them but not to another provider.

    Your best off phoning them up :

    It's pretty easy, both companies have help files on how to transfer domains. It tkaes about 5 minutes to do and then about 2-3 days to transfer.

    There must be a way. Look in your control panel or account manager settings. Find the domain, click it and see what options are available. There must be some kind of transfer option there. They will probably charge you, then maybe godaddy may also charge you for the incoming domain, I don't know. But I guarantee that money will have to be spent somewhere along the line.

    If you've purchased hosting with godaddy then you can just change the nameservers to point your domain at your godaddy hosting account.

    Many of them also like to lock the domain and don't show you the transfer option unless you unlock the domain first. Regardless, if you initiate the transfer from the new registrar and your domain is not locked the old registrar will send you an email to the address on record and confirm the transfer.

    I think it costs 10-15$ usually to transfer a domain doesn't it? It would probably be easier for you to change the nameservers.

    You have to log into Godaddy and start a transfer which will cost you a reg fee (the transfer will renew the Domain for 1 year as well). You'll need the transfer auth code from under your Register.com account and make sure the Domain is unlocked before you place the transfer order at Godaddy. Hope this helps.

    In order to transfer out, first thing to do is request a transfer code at register dot com. The reason is it takes about 5-7 days to get the transfer code from register. After that just use the transfer option at GoDaddy.

    PS. After you request your transfer code at register dot com you'll be offered a one time $10 renewal option. It's not that bad of a deal, since you can then wait a few months and transfer out anyway.

    Hope this helps.
