How do I initiate my .UK domain transfer?

How do I initiate my .UK domain transfer?


To transfer your domains over, you will need to follow the steps below to initiate the transfer with your current provider. It's a simple process, and won't take up much of your time, but it is vital to getting your domains transferred to your account. This guide is for .UK, .CO.UK, .ORG.UK and .ME.UK domain names.


1. Firstly you'll need to let us know you'd like our servers to receive the incoming domain from another registrar. You can do this by heading here and adding the domain(s) you would like to transfer over to your cart. If you have an account, proceed to checkout, if you don't please create an account and proceed to checkout afterward. 


2. Get in touch or login to your current .UK domain registrar as you will need to update the IPS Tag on the domain.

Contact your current .uk domain registrar 


3. For the relevant domain name, change the IPS Tag, sometimes called a Registrar Tag, to 'YAYYAY'.

Obtain your .uk domain's IPS Tag 


4. Once your current registrar confirms the change, your domain will appear in your Dashboard.

 Your .uk domain name is registered


.UK domains will appear in your Dashboard once your current registrar confirms the tag change. For other domain extensions, transfers will complete within 5 days of Auth Code confirmation. Your Dashboard will display the status of your domain transfers so you can see exactly how approval is progressing with your old registrar.

If you have any questions about the transfer process, please call us on [[support_number]] or email us at help@yay.com where we will be happy to help out in any way that we can. To transfer any .UK domains to us, check out our guide to gTLD and non-.UK domain transfers
