It has been a year and a half since GoDaddy acquired Uniregistry. GoDaddy recently began the process of notifying some Uniregistry (Uni) customers that their accounts will migrate to GoDaddy. I have been told this first batch of migrations is for Uni accounts that have 50 or fewer domain names in them that do not use Uni for parking or for its marketplace.
Customers whose accounts will be migrated will be given 30 days notice about the process. It will take approximately two days to move all associated account records (including domain names, payment profiles, data…etc) to GoDaddy. Once the migration is complete, customers will receive an email notifying them how to create a password and gain access to their account. The email will also contain a link to information on how to merge a new account with an existing GoDaddy account for customers that already use GoDaddy. Customers with migrated accounts will be able to login to their Uni account and SSO into their new GoDaddy account.
Because the Registrar of Record for Uni-registered domain names is GoDaddy Online Services Cayman Islands Ltd., the only change that will be noticeable is the GoDaddy control panel and account access via the GoDaddy website. Expiration dates, name servers, sales listings, and other pertinent information related to the domain name will not be changed as a result of the migration.
I was told that eventually all Uni accounts will be migrated to GoDaddy. The entire migration process will likely be completed by next Summer. Uni currently offers some back-end sales and parking technology not currently available on GoDaddy, so the migration will be completed once the back-end technology is in place at GoDaddy.
