Switching from GoDaddy to 1and1
1. make sure the domain is not set to private, if it is skip to 1a
1a. You need to go to domainsbyproxy.com, you need to request the user name (it will go to the same email address you signed up with on go daddy), once you have that you have to request a new password, once you get the new password you must use it within 2 hours. So then login to www.domainsbyproxy.com, and cancel the privacy on your domain. This can take up to 48 hours and usually takes about 12.
2. Make sure you have unlocked the domain name in the godaddy domain control panel, you should wait at least 4 hours after you do this.
3. you need to request the authorization code from godaddy, this will be sent to the email on file.
4. Sign up for your 1and1 account, during do domain registration (I own this domain name and I want to transfer it to 1and1 option) enter the authorization code from godaddy.
5 Check the email that is registered on the godaddy account for the verification link.
Then your done…
Some complications may include:
-needing to use a new authorization code after removing private registration
-not waiting long enough in between process
-not having the original email that was used to sign up with godaddy (you can change this in the admin for godaddy but you can not change it with domainsbyproxy.com)
