    Hello,

    I have some domains registered at GoDaddy.com

    I want to move them over to my favorite registrar which is NameCheap.com

    If I prepay for lets say 5 years for the domains, and then move them to the new registrar, will those prepaid years follow with the transfer?
    I mean if the prepaid years will be passed on inside my namecheap account?

    I want to think that this is the way it works, but im not sure, so I had to ask someone who knows before I take action.

    Yes, registrars carry over pre-paid time. An extra year is added to the existing expiration date.

    The exception is the Forever renewal which is not yet an industry standard.

    Is there a way for me to send you an email Rob? I dont see a PM button anywhere in here.
    Or is it the"direct message" link? Will it be public or go directly only to you?
