Bought domain name via GoDaddy but want to host somewhere else

Hi GoDaddy's community,

I would like to host my website via ovh.

But I don't know how to transfer your domain name right into another host. Is there some credentials somewhere?

Thanks for your help!

Regards,

Note that if the domain was recently registered there's a 60 day hold before it can be transferred, also changing some of the contact info can trigger the hold too.

 

If the domain is not under hold you can unlock it and get the authorization code following these steps.

It is also possible to have the registration and hosting from different providers, they can be connected with nameservers or DNS records.
