How do I access a domain registered to a company?

This article relates to domain ownership.

This article will explain how you can access a guide registered to a company.

The first step that you will need to take is to open a 123-Reg account for the domain name to be moved into. You can do this, free of charge, here:

The company identity will need to be confirmed, both in name and address, and this need to match the details shown on the Whois look up for the domain name. Access to the domain name can only be given once it has been confirmed that the legal owners are the party requesting.

As proof of identity for a domain name registered to a company, the following can be accepted:

· Bank Statement (Dated within the last 3 months)

· Utility Bill (Dated within the last 3 months)

· Companies Incorporation Certificate

Please note: We cannot accept invoices as proof of identity.

If you are supplying an Incorporation Certificate, information held with Companies House will be used to confirm business name and address details, as such these need to match the details shown on the Whois look up.

The above documentation will need to be provided, either by Fax or Email, alongside the request for the business domain name transfer.

Using the 123-reg template for the request is strongly recommended, which is available on the 123-reg support site here:

This template asks for all of the information that will be required, and will help to ensure that your request can be processed as quickly as possible.
