Well GD isn't the best when it comes to transferring ownership. That is one of the strikes I have against them. You can transfer to another GD account but you can't transfer away from GD until after the 60 day rule. No problem, that is the standard. The problem is when I buy a domain from you, you transfer to my GD account then GD makes me wait "another" 60 days. If you are going to buy and sell domains they are one of the worst. I can push a huge list or many small domains with eNom before you could transfer one at GD.
As you mentioned their site doesn't explain transfers to well. There is a difference between changing the whois and transferring. Here is what you do:
Godaddy "push" --
- Login to your account
- Click Manage domains
- Click on the domain that you want to push
- Click on Change account
- Then enter new registrant info
To me if someone is in the biz of buying and selling domains...then I would only recommend eNom. I think you will be hard pressed to find any volume broker who says they like GD policies/control panel for transfers internal to the registrar.
If you are going in the domain name reseller biz (registrations, transfers, renewals) then we can debate all day about who is better. I have my opinion and others have theirs.
