Prepare your domain name for transfer

  • Make sure that the admin contact email address for your domain name is correct and up to date. You will need to access this email address to transfer your domain name.
    Contact your current domain provider if you need to update this email address.
  • Your domain name must have been registered for at least 60 days.
  • Start your domain name transfer at least 40 days after its renewal date.
  • Ask your current domain provider to unlock your domain name for transfer.
  • Find out your domain's authorisation Code from your current provider.
    You will need this later when you are asked to confirm the domain name transfer.

Approve the domain name transfer

Once your have requested the transfer, our international domain registrar (OpenSRS) will send an email to your domain name's admin contact email address asking you to approve the transfer. Follow the instructions in the email to complete the transfer to UKreg.

You will need to approve the transfer within within 5 days of receiving the OpenSRS email.
It may then take a few more days to complete the transfer - but it's worth it for the superb service and excellent value you'll get once your domain name is with us here at UKreg.

gTLD domain name transfers are free and you'll keep any remaining months from the current registration period. We will automatically extend the registration for a further 12 months at our current rate when you transfer in.
