Transferring your .UK domain to another registrar

Last Updated: May 30, 2017 03:03PM UTC

Hi there,

To transfer your .UK domain name from iwantmyname to another registrar requires changing what's called the registrar tag or IPS tag to the new company's tag.

Login to your iwantmyname account
and go to this page:

https://iwantmyname.com/dashboard/domains/edit/{{case.custom_domain | uri_encode}}

Click on "transfer to another registrar". On the next page, type in the new registrar's IPS tag in the field provided.

If you're not sure what it is, their support team can provide it to you. Ours, for example, is "1API-DE".

Then click on the red transfer button to initiate the transfer. Once that's done the transfer will automatically complete within about an hour.

If you would like to transfer your domain to another iwantmyname account instead, instructions for internal transfers are here:
