    Is anybody facing Godaddy Account Push Issues?

    Kindly advise as most of us have been facing trouble while pushing a domain name to another user at GD! :(

    Select "do not change details" or something similar. There are options to keep DNS records unchange or to use the details from the specified account. Push without changing the details and ask the new owner to change them later.

    Sorry I mean to say domain contact info in particular. I mentioned DNS but what I meant was the domain (under transaction) 's contact details can be left unchanged. There is also an option to use the contact details of the new owner. Select the former and it's usually done. I have faced this issue in the past too. Push was unsuccessful when selecting "use details from specified account".

    I don't want to change the domain contact details, simply because I'm trying to push the domain to Undeveloped escrow account... and still, don't work. They can't accept the domain every time they getting an error when clicking on the email from GD

    I see. That might be a different case from what I have experience.

    There are plenty of users facing the same issue, and we are discussing this internally in one of our groups about it as well. People are not able to push domain names to other accounts for some odd reason and support at Godaddy are of no help at all :(

    Having pushes not working is the last thing any registrar may wish. Since the customer may always use an alternative - transfer the domain away and use push button elsewhere. Which by itself means that they should be working on it even on Sat./Sun....

    Not changing DNS should be standard in any transfer or push, shouldn't be an "option" considering how important and sensitive DNS is. New owner can change as they deemed fit.

    Yes. Recently I had to push a domain 3 times to someone, and they accepted it each time, before it finally left my account.

    I've done several GoDaddy account changes in the past few days with no issues. Did you make sure to remove your privacy, unlock the domain, with the correct authorization code?

    GoDaddy are tinkering with their push technology, it seems like daily. A push today seems always slightly different from a push yesterday. GoDaddy don't help themselves by making their options ambiguous. Couple this with domain owners who cannot understand what GoDaddy's options actually mean (in part because of the ambiguity and partly the blind faith of the pusher that GoDaddy are looking after their interests. Which they are not). It's a recipe for disaster. Disaster meaning the domain is locked for another 60 days.

    This is not just a new phenomena. But from all these messages. It seems like they've reached breaking point. Where even experienced pushers cannot even push a domain. Oh, isn't life wonderful that this happens over the Easter Holiday period.

    I try to NEVER accept a GoDaddy push, unless there are extreme circumstances for it. (Like a mistake on my part which required a push to complete my obligations). I would say that I've probably accepted a push less than 10 times in the last year. In approximately 80% of the cases, the push was not completed without the domain being locked for a new 60 days. All have required lengthy discussions with their call center, dealing with support staff insufficiently trained to actually help. I simply refuse to buy a domain which cannot be transferred away. However much I would like it.

    It's crazy. Every other registrar on the planet can perform a push to another account without all this mumbo jumbo which GD put you thru.

    I wish you all the best getting your pushes completed. And of course a Happy Easter :)

    It’s nothing to do with registrar transfers bud, but within Godaddy account to account push.

    That made me laugh out loud :) But it's not a laughing matter. I FEEL your pain. But what is he doing buying an english domain if he doesn't understand english. Or are you registering italian domains, these days :)
