If the domain is registered with another coming (Network Solutions, Bluehost, other) than you need to purchase a domain transfer. This will also extend the registration by 1 year. You will need to make sure the domain is unlocked and also have the auth codes from the other company.

 

If the domain is already with GoDaddy in someone else's account but you want to get it into your own account, they would have to push the domain into your account. There are some forms / manual process where you provide proof of "ownership" if they are not being responsive. GoDaddy support can help with this process.

OK, yeah, they are with another provider and they informed me they will hand me the EPP codes.

Hi @Vacadeluna,

 

Welcome to the Community!

Yes, you will need to get the EPP code - or Authorization code - from the current registrar (or owner, if that's not you). You'll also need to unlock the domain. Once you've taken those two actions, you should purchase the transfer on GoDaddy. These instructions will help you walk through the process here.
