    Hello all, Might seem like a dumb question but I see many offers for sale that say "push Godaddy" or whoever. What is the difference between a push if I sell a domain or a transfer?

    Thanks

    In domainer's language, Push means an internal transfer from one user's account to another, while Transfer means transferring the domain from one Registrar to another.

    Are pushes on same registrar usually free? Is that why everyone seems to prefer this? .com transfers are free unless you use godaddy and a few others. Am I missing something?
    Thanks

    Yes.
    Except for a few registrars like 1&1 and Dada Group (Register.it, Nominalia, etc.)
    Yes. Plus it's (usually) instantenous. Transfers take a little more time.
    Transfers between registrars are never free! Transfers = 1 year renewals.

    There is another factor weighing heavily on a preference for pushes. In the world of domain trading where it's not unknown for names to change hands at the blistering speed of fast domain transfers, pushing may me the only choice, in compliance with an ICANN rule prohibiting inter-registrar transfers of newly registered (or previously registered but subsequently/materially changed as a result of new ownership) names if they are less than 60 days old, to flip a name.

    Are people saying that GoDaddy charges for pushes, or demands a one year renewal?

    I have never pushed anywhere but I was going to transfer all my domains to Godaddy until they told me they would charge me $9 each. That would have cost me thousands. My current registrar transfers .coms, for no charge, to other registrars so as a seller that is a good option.

    I think you misunderstood the concept of transfer. Every transfer involves a renewal price, so by paying $9 per domain you get an additional year. Plus to this, only receiving registrar charges a fee. Godaddy also has no charge if you transfer your domain away from them.

    Ok now I see what you are saying. I was confused because I recently transferred a group of my domains to a different registrar and they only charged me an extra year for the ones that had less than 3 months.
