After initiating the transfer in our system, the domain has to be to pushed to our system. Please refer to the transfer instructions for more information. After a transfer, our system syncronizes the owner of the domain from the registry to our system. If possible, you can start an owner change if you want to replace the synced owner. Please start the transfer before the old registrar submits the TAG-CHANGE to Nominet.

After the start of a transfer every contact in our system will receive the following instructions:

Dear Domain Contact,

to transfer a .UK domain, please tell your old registrar to submit a TAG-CHANGE to Nominet. The new TAG is: HTTPNET-DE

Shortly after the the old registrar submits the TAG-CHANGE, the transfer will be completed.


An Ownerchange is only supported direct at the registry. You cannot change the Owner with our system. An OwnerChange can only be done by the registrant on side of the registry NOMINET directly: https://secure.nominet.org.uk/auth/login.html.
