I just did this and it worked for me.
This browser is no longer supported.
Upgrade to Microsoft Edge to take advantage of the latest features, security updates, and technical support.
I bought a domain name from normal GoDaddy account few months ago and now I want to transfer that domain to Azure.
As discussed, I have got an update from an engineer from our Product team, and as you know that unfortunately up until Today we still do not support any domain transfer-in to Azure and we don’t have an ETA for when it will be supported. Currently, there is no workaround for that as well.
We have also updated our internal team to disable the blade on Azure where it says (Transfer Domains) since it is not supported. Your feedback is taken into consideration as well.

Can we get an update on this feature?
Currently the Azure service says "Ability to ‘Transfer in’ your domain to Azure (coming soon)"
We would like to request updated information regarding domain transfer-in. We are hoping to understand the process better and make the transition into our new domain smoother. We would greatly appreciate your comment on the progress. as a technology manager it really important for users to keep all assets at one dashboard
I just did this and it worked for me.
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 https://github.com/CatchRetry/azure-domain-transfer
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:
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.
Hi, I have a question too. There are 2 domains registered in the Azure Portal. I want to transfer these 2 domains to 2 different Godaddy accounts. How can I do this ? Do you need to pay additional fees when transferring to your Godaddy account
Please don't use or share those steps.
At moment Transfer-in is not supported by Microsoft and you may run on undesired issues with your domain.
We are actively working to enable this scenario but at present we DO NOT support transferring a domain into Azure. There is no workaround at this moment to transfer-in your domain to App Service domain.
Please update when this is supported and the proper steps for transferring a domain from GoDaddy to Azure. This is a high priority for my company.
@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.
Thanks for your reply. I know how to configure DNS records. But I want to transfer the domain to another company's azure account so that billing can be managed from the single account.
Thanks for the update.
If I understand you correctly:
You can migrate an active custom domain in Azure, between subscriptions or within the same subscription or within the same subscription. As mentioned in this document.
Additionally, this article shows you how to move Azure resources to either another Azure subscription or another resource group under the same subscription.
If you're intending to transfer a GoDaddy domain, you can directly transfer to the destined subscription as mentioned in the previous post.
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
Very confusing. It won't let me transfer my domain from GoDaddy because it says "Domain already at Azure." Yes, we've linked an App Service to this domain, but I was hoping to transfer it into Azure.
Are you able to check the DNS entry. what DNS server information is pointing it? I mean DNS zone entry. Please explain how you are trying (steps). In which particular point you stopped?
Zone entry is in Quebec. Even though our APP Service is in East US, the IP for the custom domain was originally set to Canada because the app service once was in the Canada East Azure zone.
There is no option (that I can find) to change the IP address for a custom domain in Azure.
I just tried it again. The error is different now. "There was an error processing your request. Please try again. If the error continues contact support at 18006427676"
So it's no longer saying "Domain already at Azure", it actually brings me to the subtotal page with a "Go To Checkout" page, but that error is just above the checkout button.
I think this may still be in alpha testing, because I sent a ticket into Azure and they wrote back that they don't support domain transfers.
Thanks for all the information. I don't have any domain to transfer right now so I am unable to test. I will let you know, if i will find something.
I contacted support, but they don't support "Transfer In" errors yet. I think this is still in beta because the support representative wanted a screen shot where it said to 'Call Support". So I sent it to them. Maybe in a month or three this will be working, as for now, it's just isn't working.
Just spoke to Microsoft tech. They are going to be closing down that link until they figure out the issues. No ETA given, so I'm assuming this won't be ready for another few months to a year.
