    Godaddy.com website transfer, please help!

    Hello,

    I'm transferring a domain/website that are both at godaddy.

    I'm transferring to another godaddy user.

    I did the account changes for the domain and all seemed to work.

    I'm wondering though, does the person I'm sending the domain to automatically get all my website files and hosting as well from my godaddy acount?


    Or do I have to send all the website files etc. to them separately so they can set up their own hosting package. I'm confused.

    Please help. Thanks!

    When you do a domain transfer, you are only giving control of the registration and info relating to:
    DNS settings
    Renewals
    Contact info, etc, etc.

    You'll still have to send them the source files for the actual site itself.

    Hello,

    Yes, domain name and website files (hosting) are two different things.

    Regards

    Yes, you'll have to send all the website files and go into phpmyadmin and to a database dump and send that as well.

    You are matching domain name account and web hosting account here. That is not the same actually and that is about different things.
    Do not worry you will have all files with you while domain name transfer
