Awaiting Registrar - How long it takes from GoDaddy

  • Answered
I have asked for a domain transfer, domain name is, the status is Awaiting Registrar.
It's been 4-5 days now, how long it will take and what I can do to expedite the transfer.
Hello VGrover,

When a domain transfer gets to the Awaiting Registrar portion of the process, it means it the new registrar is awaiting the losing registrar, in this case GoDaddy, to respond. This can take up to 7 days.

A full registrar transfer can take up to 7-14 days. There are no ways to expedite the process except to answer any emails you receive from the registrars in a timely manner. GoDaddy generally sends out an email to the domain owner for confirmation and this can speed up the transfer if you answer it. If you already have then there is nothing more you can do from your side. Your timeframe is typical although I have seen transfers happen in as little as 8 hours or as long as 14 days.
