Why do I need a GoDaddy account?

For you to become the legal owner of the domain name GiteWise bought and registered on your behalf, I need to transfer it to you. I can only do this once you have an account of your own with a domain registrar company, such as GoDaddy. This is the registrar GiteWise uses, and this page describes how to set up an account with GoDaddy.

Can I use a different domain registrar?

Yes. If you prefer to use a different registrar, just let me have the info I need to begin the transfer. Other popular registrars include: 1and1.co.uk, 123-reg.co.uk  and fasthosts.co.uk.

Will I have to pay anything?

There is no charge for setting up your own GoDaddy account, and no ongoing fees. Transfer from GiteWise’s GoDaddy account to yours is free. If you’re using a different registrar, there may be a transfer fee.

What do I need to do?

1. Follow the steps below to create your own GoDaddy account.

2. Fill in the Domain Transfer Request form and send it to GiteWise. (You’ll find this at the bottom of the page.)

3. Follow the instructions you receive by email from GoDaddy.

Here’s how to create your own GoDaddy account

1. Go to the GoDaddy home page and click Sign In.

2. In the panel that opens, click Create My Account.

3. In the next panel, enter your email address, username and password.

You also need to enter a four-digit PIN – you may be asked for this if you ever want to talk directly with Go Daddy customer support.

Click the Create Account button.

The next screen you’ll see is your GoDaddy account dashboard. You’ll see this every time you sign in.

You can now send the Domain Transfer Request form to GiteWise. (You’ll find the form at the bottom of this page.)

Finish your account setup now or later

At some point, you’ll need to fill in some more information to complete your account setup, but you don’t need to do that right away. If you want to save this part for later, simply log out of GoDaddy, then come back and finish the setup when you have more time.

For help with what sections you need to complete, see How to set up your GoDaddy account – Part 2.

4. Send GiteWise your info

A short while after you create your GoDaddy account, you’ll get an email from GoDaddy confirming that your account has been set up. It will look something like this:

Go Daddy account info email

You’ll notice this email contains your GoDaddy customer number, which you can use to log in to your GoDaddy account if you forget your username.

Now that you’ve created your GoDaddy account, use the Domain Transfer Request form below to send the details to GiteWise.

I can then begin the transfer of your domain/s to your ownership.

Please note you need to enter the same email address in the form as you used to create your GoDaddy account

If you have only one domain name to transfer, enter this in the first Domain box. If you have more than one domain to transfer, enter each in its own box.
