Moving Domain from GoDaddy to Google Domains
I was using GoDaddy as my domain register for a long time and was planning to move to a better option(reliable but less costly) for last few years. But every-time I just ended up in renewing the domain in GoDaddy itself. As part of my blog update, finally I spent some time to look for an alternative option and finally I decided to move to to Google Domain.
Cost of the domain is Rs. 860.00+ Rs. 154.80 tax = Rs. 1,014.80. Compared to other domain registers, domain cost is not less but privacy protection was already included in this. So compared to GoDaddy and few other registers I tried, total cost was lightly less for Google Domain.
This was straight forward, used transfer option in https://domains.google.com/.
- Enter domain name
- Goto your current register, unlock your domain and get the authorization code(often called an transfer code or EPP code)
- Import the settings as required and complete the configuration options
- Complete they payment
- Thats it. It took around 1 week to get the complete the transfer and I got confirmation today
- Looks like all the configurations were imported correctly and domain is working as expected. Subdomains are not working but I am not sure whether it is due to the transfer or something else. Need to dig again, when I get more time.
