How To Transfer in a .uk Domain

In this section, we will detail how to transfer a .UK domain over to UK2.net from another registrar.

Pre-requisites:

At your current registrar, make sure that your domain is not expired.

Make sure your domain has been registered for over 60 days.

Request your IPS Tag to be changed to UK2NET at your current registrar. The IPS tag is in all capitals.

New Clients:

  1. Update the IPS Tag at your current domain registrar. Update the tag to “ UK2NET ” without the quotes and using  all uppercase  letters. This must be updated before completing the checkout or the transfer will fail. 

  2. Go to our home page http://www.uk2.net/  and in the search bar type in your domain and click "Search"



  3. The domain will show up as taken and a box next to the domain saying “Transfer.” Click the transfer button and then select Checkout Now. Then, follow the checkout instructions.



  4. Complete the checkout process. The transfer can take up to 24 hours to complete.


If you experience any errors during the checkout process please make sure the IPS Tag has been changed and is correct. You can use the tool  https://www.whois.com/whois/  to check the registrar IPS Tag.
