I have a domain with the name at GoDaddy, and the site here in IMH. I would like to completely transfer it to someone else completely out of my control, off my list of subdomains. It is a joomla site with a good amount of content. Is there a relatively easy way to do this?

Thank you for your question SurvivorsEdge?

For Addon domains and Sub domain you can <a href="http://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/website/file-management/create-backup-using-ftp">download the files using and FTP program like FileZilla</a> and <a href="http://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/website/how-to/backing-up-your-database">backup the database with PhpMyAdmin</a>. All you need are the files and database for the site to be moved to another server.

After that you upload the files to the new server and import that database on the new server. Once the files and database are on the server, you <a href="http://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/website/how-to/find-config-files">change the /configuration.php file</a> to the new database username and password. Once done and the domain points to the new server you can remove the <a href="http://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/edu/cpanel/cpanel-manage-domains/adding-add-on-domain-in-cpanel">addon</a> from your server.
