Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: I like the idea of saving money - so how does this work?
A: Its quick and easy. You just fill in your email and GoDaddy username below. You'll be taken to another page where you will enter your GoDaddy password and our servers will validate your credentials and bring up a list of the domains you have in your account. You choose the domain(s) you want to transfer, create a login to our Honest Domains control panel, and pay for the first year of registration(s) with us (which adds to whatever is left on your current registration), and our tool starts cranking away at the hard technical part for you. 5 days later, your domain is transferred, retaining the settings you have currently at GoDaddy, with no service outage, and you are all set!
Q: Is there any downtime for my website during the transfer?
A: Nope, none. Not even a second.
Q: Why are your prices so much lower than GoDaddy's?
A: Domain names have an underlying cost that's the same regardless of whether its a new registration or a renewal. Any company that charges higher prices for renewals is just making a lot more profit, figuring that you will not spend the time and energy to transfer away. We just charge a modest amount over the underlying cost to pay for our servers and overhead and thats it.
Q: But transferring seems hard - how can you say that its easy?
A: We are programmers, so we built a tool that does most of the hard work for you! You just need to take 60 seconds to create a new account with us, choose which domain(s) to transfer, and our tool will get to work for you!
Q: Am I getting the same product with you that I would with Godaddy?
A: Yes! A domain registration is a domain registration and there are no performance differences or anything else. In fact our service is better since our domain control panel is faster and more featured.
Q: I still have 3 months left on my current registration - if I transfer to you will I lose those three months that I've already paid for?
A: No - when you buy a year of registration from us during the transfer process, we start counting that year from your current registration end date. So, if you have 3 months left on your current registration, buying a year from us would bump you up to 15 months on your registration.
Q: This sounds too good to be true - is it?
Transfer Now and Save
A: Emphatically no. Its sad to us that people have gotten so used to getting screwed that when an honest company doesn't want to screw them they get suspicious. Give us a try - you'll find us straightforward, direct, and most importantly, honest!
