Transfer account ownership

If I want to transfer full ownership of my GoDaddy account to my spouse, is it enough for me to prepare a notarized "Power of Attorney for Digital Asset" letter or do I need to use services like Mylennium.com-Digital Asset Authorization? 

 

I know there is an option to give "delegate access" in my account, but I prefer to use a legal document instead.

 

Thanks!

I am a GoDaddy end user. As @TLH  from a technical perspective - the account name / ownership is self administrated so there is nothing per say that you need to provide to GoDaddy. 

 

The only reason your spouse would need some form of legal document to provide to GoDaddy would be if you hadn't provided them your user id / password / pin and they did not have access to your email account to retrieve the password and they need to prove that they now "owned" the account.

 

https://www.godaddy.com/help/regain-access-to-my-domain-or-my-account-4043 talks about getting access to an account.

 

Personally I can tell you that most people that I speak to just change the names / passwords for the accounts. The legal transfer of ownership / who is responsible is really an offline - non-technical thing - and would be in whatever agreement(s) you have with your spouse .

Hi @Pineapple176,

 

Welcome to the Community!

If you are wanting to turn over the account now, you do not need any legal documents. Simply change the name and details on the profile and replace any payment methods, if necessary. If the email address is your spouse's, they can do a password reset to access the account when ready.

Thank you TLH for your suggestion. But I am not planning to turn over the account now.

Just doing some research in regards to my digital assets ownership transfer.

Do you have any advice which legal documents that GoDaddy would accept? A Power of Attorney Letter or 3rd party service like Mylennium?

 

Thanks
