Before you begin a godaddy to wordpress domain transfer, make sure you have a contact person for your domain. You can update this information in your WordPress account, but you should contact the person listed as the domain contact for help. Ensure you have an email address accessible to this person so they can unlock your domain and request a transfer code. If you do not have an email address for this person, you must change it to ensure the transfer process goes smoothly.
To transfer your domain from Godaddy to WordPress, you’ll need to change the nameservers of your domain. To do this, you’ll need to edit your domain’s nameservers. Follow the instructions on your current domain registrar’s help page. If you’re using GoDaddy’s Website Builder, you can copy your old navigation menu from GoDaddy’s site and paste it in the new one.
The next step is to manually copy all the content from your GoDaddy site. Then, use your WordPress website builder account to install WordPress on your domain. The process can take up to an hour, so be patient and make sure your domain is active before moving it. After that, deactivate your GoDaddy website builder account and log into your new cPanel dashboard. Navigate to your cPanel dashboard, and click Add on domains. Fill out the information for the domain, including the subdomain and document root.
After making payment, GoDaddy will send you a confirmation email. Check your account to confirm that the email address you have entered is correct. If not, you can resend the email to ensure the transfer is successful. Once the transfer is complete, the domain will be extended by one year. However, before you transfer your domain, make sure you have a backup of your website. You can also use migration plugins to make the transition smooth.
