I’ve been a GoDaddy customer since forever, probably over a decade now, I am fed-up of their pricing as it’s been ramping up over the years and near impossible to use coupons to make it bearable. CF was a great option and I signed up as an early access member, so here’s my first attempt to move over 2x .net domains from GD to CF.
I read through the guide. Seems simple enough, check for domain locks (unlocked it @ GD), remove any whois protection (didn’t have any), get auth code (done, email arrived within 30s).
I go to my CF Dash and I don’t see a “Domain Registration” button next to Configurations button per the screenshot in the guide.
I clicked “Add site”, entered my domain name and that’s for their regular product, not domain registration. On a side note, I now have a half-done product application on one domain…I stopped at the screen where you pick a plan
On the flip side, my domain now shows up in the “Unable to transfer” list!
A bit of Google-fu and it seems the reason it’s saying “Not an active zone” is that I haven’t pointed the DNS at GD to CF DNS. I don’t see that step mentioned anywhere! So I Google some more, I can’t seem to find the actual DNS settings to use at GD so it points to CF DNS!
Awaiting further instructions…
