What is the administrative email?

I am transferring a domain from another service provider to my account with inmotionhosting and I want to be sure that the transfer takes place.  While the contact email for the service provider is listed as my email, the WhoIS data shows an abuse contact email.  

Is there any other setting that needs to be adjusted on the other host's end prior to making the transfer?

Current Provider: GoDaddy

Hello Jon Erik,

Thanks for the question about transferring your domain from another provider.  You can reference this article, How to Transfer a Domain to InMotion Hosting, for all of the requirements.  By default, due to privacy concerns, the WHOIS information is constantly masked like that.  You can always change contact information at the current registrar, but the main issues with transfer are the Authorization code, that the domain is unlocked, and that the domain is not less than 60 days old.  This is not a rule of the registrar but one laid out by governing body for domain registrars (ICANN). You can contact our Customer Service team if you require any further assistance with your domain transfer.

If you have any further questions or comments, please let us know.

Kindest Regards,

Arnel C.
