How do I transfer a .UK domain name?

Please note that .UK domains don't use authorisation codes or registrar locks.

Incoming Transfers

Transferring a .UK domain into our system is a very simple process. Please contact the current registrar and request that they change the IPS TAG on your domain to LCN.
Please contact us before changing the tag as we have to pre approvethe inbound transfer.


What fees are involved?

There are no fees for transferring a domain in to RMPnet, you will just get your normal renewal notice sent 90, 60, 30, 15, 7 and one days before the domain expires.


Outgoing Transfers

Transferring a .UK domain away from our system is a manual, two step process. Please do the following:

  • Submit a ticket to the Support department with the subject IPS TAG CHANGE requesting that we change the IPS TAG for your domain to the gaining registrar. As this is a manual process, please allow up to 48 hours for your request to be actioned. For a complete list of IPS TAG holders, please go to http://www.nominet.org.uk/registrars/becomeregistrar/taglist or contact your gaining registrar for more information.
  • Initiate the transfer on the gaining registrar's system.
