Transferring domain from GoDaddy to TMDHosting
Most of our customers transfer their domain to us, because they experience some difficulties with their registrars. For example, their registrars register domains with the information of their company, overcharges the renewals, leave their costumers without notification when the domain expires. Also after the transfer, you will be able to renew your hosting package with us along with your domain at once.

We shall also extend the expiration period of your domain with one additional year after the transfer has completed.
