Hello,

 

Can anyone help me??

There are 2 different answers to your question

 

1) Domain Registration Transfer - this would just be a matter of purchasing the domain transfer and then putting in the auth codes - You may have to unlock the domain in SiteGround - Also as it looks like this is a new domain you may have a 60 day window before you can transfer this 

 

This is ONLY the domain, not the hosting.

 

2) Hosting - This is where you would move the files from SiteGround to GoDaddy - https://www.godaddy.com/hosting/wordpress-hosting I recommend the Ultimate Plan

Just to explain though - this is a MANAGED service vs a cPanel service - meaning that other than PHP version, GoDaddy is managing all the settings behind the scenes for you. SiteGround is giving you a cPanel server where you can make many more tweaks to - both are technically "shared" but cPanel vs Managed is apples to oranges

 

Hope this helps
