Just as you can transfer ownership of a vehicle or trademark, you can also transfer domains. A number of registrars have a built-in system for this process, which is called "pushing" in the domain industry. Using the "Account Change" feature at Go Daddy, it takes only a few minutes to move a domain to another user account.
