  3. They updated the hub for godaddy can you help me out of godaddy jail please? by making a new one? Also ill keep trying but it might help others to if u make updated verison of this js.

    Thanks for the older verison though gives me some guessing ideas where it might be to find the export button.

  4. Great Video!!! GODADDY is a pure thief they just charge you for 17$ every year for something that worth 8$ per year, I moved my hosting and domains, emails away from them to namecheap!

  5. After transferring the domain to another provider, how to transfer the website to a new host for the same domain, can you please make a video on this?
    i.e in your case you transferred the domain from Godaddy to Namecheap, now if you want to transfer a website from say Godaddy to Namecheap for the same domain you transferred, how would you do that. I hope you understood what I want to say. Please guide me. Thanks

  6. Thank you for making this as simple as possible. Thank you for using very quiet soothing music in the background. And thanks for the little funny movie clips haha 🙂

  7. AWESOME MAN!!! .. I want to leave godaddy long time ago. Thanks to you. I just did. Godaddy constanly increasing the price for my domain. I Got my domain long time ago for 8-9 dollars I think … Now my domain si 17 dollars … the transfer to namecheap cost me only 8.66 dollars for one year …. that's why I leave godaddy and move to Namecheap

  8. Thanks for the fun video! I followed your video to transfer a domain from godaddy to gandi. After your video I read some of the comments below and realise that I didn't transfer the DNS records before making the transfer. Have I messed up or are they usually automatically transferred? or is it possible to recover them and transfer them? I see the domain is no longer available in godaddy though 😕🤞🏻

  9. Clear tutorial. Just what I needed … I can't wait for my current subscription with GoDaddy to get close to its expiry date so that I can finally tell them a kind of goodbye a little more colorful that Arnie's "Hasta La Vista" 😉

  10. Pro-tip: If you use the promo code BYEBYEGD when transferring from Godaddy to Namecheap, that's the best possible deal 😛

  11. You didn't say when you change your contact info, you will be unable to do the transfer because GoDaddy's Policy. Now, I have to wait 60 days to do the transfer and my domain expired in 45 days. I don't know what to do. I'm very frustrated.
