Transferring .uk domain names away from Fasthosts

A written version of this guide can be found here:

This video will help you transfer a UK domain to another provider. The process is different if you wish to transfer an international domain (eg .com, .net) to another provider, or any domain to another Fasthosts account.

You can transfer, .uk,,, and domain names away from Fasthosts, provided that the domain name has been registered for at least 60 days. UK domains can be transferred once expired as long as the domain is still shown as “registered” on the WhoIs.

The transfer process is quick and free of charge. Transferring a domain name will move the domain registration to another provider, it will not transfer your website or any other hosted services.

When transferring your domain name you should follow your new providers’ procedure for transferring the domain. At some point in the process you will be asked to change the IPS tag on your domain name. This article explains how to change this tag within the Fasthosts control panel.

Difficulty: Beginner

How long will it take me?
◾5 minutes to complete the Fasthosts side of the transfer
◾The overall transfer may take up to 72 hours to complete.

What will I need?
◾Your Control panel Username and password.
◾A .uk domain name
◾The IPS tag of your new registration provider. This is available from your new registration provider.
