I have a domain name which is bookofbesiktasshirts.com that I got from wix. I alsi have another domain name which is besiktasformalarikitabi.com that I got from godaddy. The one I got from godaddy is forwarded to the wix site. So whoever types either domain name the wix site comes up.
Now, I would like to transfer these both domains to another person. I was able to get the authorization code from godaddy and it shall resolve on that side. However, I don't know how to transfer the domain name that I got from wix.com. Will you please help me in this matter? Thank you.

My domain suttonbooksnorwich.com is registered with GoDaddy. I would like to switch my hosting to Weebly. I can't do this through GoDaddy, which says "The zone file is unavailable because the domain's set nameservers do not belong to this registrar."
So I try editing my editing my domain records from Wix <https://premium.wix.com/wix/api/domainEditRecordsView?domainName=suttonbooksnorwich.com>. The instructions from Weebly say to change A (Host) to the IP address to 22.214.171.124, but they give no option for the CNAME or the NS (Name Servers).
When I asked Weebly for advice, they said to send this message:
"I created a website with Weebly and need to point my domain to their servers. Can you set this up for me or walk me through the process of making these changes? I need to create A-Records for "www" and for my root domain. That's one record for "www" pointing to 126.96.36.199. And one record for the root domain pointing to 188.8.131.52.
If you need more info on these changes, please see:
Can you advise me? Thank you.

I am trying to transfer a domain to another host, and I have followed all the steps, my new host support says the domain is "locked" by the previous host. Where is this "Locked" option? and how do I unlock it to transfer?

How do I re-direct my domain away from wix, I can't see the option 'Transfer away from Wix' under Domain, I am not sure who the domain host is Wix or other and how I can re-direct this site to a non-wix site.

I am currently in the process of transferring my domain from here to my webhost ixwebhosting.com. I checked with my web host and they informed me that the transfer is taking a longtime due to some things from your end.
I initiated the transfer about 5 days ago however the domain has not been moved yet. Can you please inform me if there is anything you need from me? I am trying to complete the transfer this week, which I think is reasonable as the week just began.
Thanks in advance!

I am investigating hosting options at this point, and wanted to see what transfer options were available. I have seen the video and many posts here and the video does not match up with options I have in my account. When going to the manage domain->Advanced, there are only options on the right-hand side for connecting the domain to sites. There is nothing about transfers. What am I missing?

I have tried multiple times to transfer my domain to a new host and each time they say hat y'all have rejected the request even though I have provided the transfer code. Is there something else that I need to do on this side to be able to transfer my domain?
