    Get the authorization code from your registrar
    Go to your registrar and get the transfer authorization code. Check that the domain is unlocked for transfer.

    Get Powershell scripts
    You can get the source code of the Powershell script via your browser or git clone

    Execute the transfer
    Close all other PowerShell windows and start a new one as an administrator.
    Navigate to the script directory and run the PS script:
    cd "C:...\azure-domain-transfer"
    Confirm the transfer
    When you get the confirmation email. Click the confirmation button Now you have to wait up to 5-7 days for the transfer to be complete.

    Accept the transfer from your registrar (if you can)
    Some registrar let the owner of the domain cancel or confirm the transfer. It allows the operation to be completed before the 5-7 days.

    Wait for the transfer to be complete...
    Wait and check the resource to be fullly available in you Azure portal.

    @Vivekkumar Parmar , Welcome to Microsoft Q&A! Thanks for posting the question.

    You can map an existing domain on Azure App Service.

    Essentially, you can sign in to the website of your domain provider (GoDaddy) and use either a CNAME record or an A record to map a custom DNS name to App Service.

    Kindly take a look at the document Tutorial: Map an existing custom DNS name to Azure App Service for a detailed steps.

    Azure have options to transfer a domain from GoDaddy to Azure or any other provider to Azure.

    There is a portal GUI available but you need at least one existing App service Domain.

    Search App Service Domains---> click currently available domains--> under Domain Management click Advanced Management Portal-->

    It will open new site--> under Domain menu there is transfer options available.

    I think you guys now able to complete the domain transfer to Azure
