How do I transfer my .UK domain to Dynadot?

Transferring a .UK domain is different than most domain transfers. To transfer your .UK domain to Dynadot, please follow these steps:

  1. Ask your current registrar (also known as tag holder) to change the tag (also known as the IPS tag) for your domain to "DYNADOT". You do not need to place an order on our transfer page.
  2. Email us at info@dynadot.com and let us know your username and the domain you just re-tagged.

We will add the domain to your account once Nominet, the central registry for .UK, notifies us that the domain has been re-tagged.

Dynadot does not charge a fee for this service. Please be aware that your domain will not be renewed for 1 year, unlike domain transfers for .COM, .NET, and most other domain extensions.

If your current registrar will not or cannot change your tag for you, then you can move your domain name to a new registrar yourself using Nominet's Online Services, which involves a fee of £10 plus UK VAT at 20% as of 2016.
