    So been reading about flipping autoblogs and the such and would like to know how do I send them everything? Is there a way to back up everything and then transfer it all to them?

    Also, I register all domains through go daddy but have seen something about a $15 or something like that transfer fee. If anyone could provide info to these two questions or a different registrar that does not require a fee, I would greatly appreciate it.

    Godaddy and Namecheap (maybe also Name.com) have features to push domains, means you can push the domain your own to other Godaddy/Namecheap account, just fill their username and email that associated to Godaddy/Namecheap account and this is completely free, as long the new owner have the same account with your registrant.

    forgot to tell you, at Godaddy the features name is "Account Change" and at Namecheap is "Push Domains To Other User" under Domain manager menus.

    you should offer push the domains to new owner as long they have the same account with you, and ask the new owner to sign up at Godaddy/Namecheap, otherwise their should transfer it to their current registrant by themselves

    for transfer site to new owner, I though you should hire someone or ask the support of your hosting to help if you can't do backup and restore.
    the files and database should transfered to new owner hosting, ask them to provide you the login information to do that.

    I usually pay my assistant to transfer site for $3/site, although I can do it by myself but it take lots time consumption

    what I mean above is called "push domain" not "Transferring", it's different with buy at Godaddy registrant and transfer to Namecheap registrant.

    push domain is from your Godaddy to your client's Godaddy account and yes it's free,

    Transferring between one godaddy account to another godaddy account is free!

    but u have to pay some fee (not sure how much) if u want to transfer from another registrant (ex: namecheap) to godaddy.

    so if your buyer don't have namecheap account but not godaddy account, don't transfer it to namecheap. what u need to do is open new godaddy account (free) and transfer the domain to that account.

    u can search video on youtube about the transferring process. i believe youtube will provide good tutorials about this. :)

    I have over 4 years of experience transferring WP blogs from host to host and could be the man you call for all your transfer needs for $2 a transfer. I am available at all times for transfer just give me a call or text and I will get on it... How do you like that kind of service?

    And as long as its a switch from GoDaddy to GoDaddy then it should be free. I have never paid a dime for switching account holders on GoDaddy but never tried namecheap since GoDaddy has treated me right since the beginning.
