Transfer one domain between two godaddy accounts

Hi,

 

I'd like to transfer one domain from my godaddy account to a godaddy account of somebody else but I don't want to risk loosing all the DNS records.

 

Can a domain be transferred between accounts without disruptions to the domain settings (so the world and the user of the domain doesn't notice any change)?

 

Is that the default result or do I need to take actions to prevent the domain records from being changed in the transfer process.

My experience is when doing account transfers is the DNS settings stay as is. The foot note on this is being aware of any email / other services linked with the domain that may get disabled / cancelled as the only thing that moves is the domain itself

These instructions have since changed with the launch of the new domain manager. The appropriate instructions have been updated here: https://www.godaddy.com/help/move-my-domain-to-another-godaddy-account-822
