Frequently asked questions about domain transfers
Why should I transfer my domains to 123 Reg?
With over 20 years’ experience, we pride ourselves on delivering a straightforward service that’s backed up by award-winning customer support.
We don’t believe in nasty surprises either, which is why we show our transfer prices upfront. We even offer free transfers for all UK-specific domain names, such as .uk, .co.uk, .org.uk and .me.uk.
How do I transfer my domains to 123 Reg?
This can be done by following the instructions outlined below:
1) Start by ‘unlocking’ the domain name that you wish to transfer with your current provider. Depending on its extension, you may also need to get its authorisation code. For details on how to do all this, please read the following article: Transferring third-party domain names to 123 Reg.
2) Enter your domain into our search tool and select the option ‘Transfer my domain’ within the results.
3) Continue to the checkout to submit your transfer fee. Even if you’re eligible for a free transfer, you will need to complete this step, although you won’t be charged anything.
4) After you’ve done this, you’ll receive an email from the appropriate registry, asking you to approve the transfer. Follow the instructions within this email and your domain will be transferred to us shortly.
If, however, the extension you'd like to transfer isn't listed, you won' be able to transfer that domain name to us.
Need to transfer multiple domains? You can transfer up to 500 domains to 123 Reg at once with our bulk domain transfer tool. Simply access the Domain Control Centre within your 123 Reg account and then you can either enter each domain one-by-one, paste them in or upload them in a .CSV, .XLS or .XLSX file. If you’re not sure how to access our Domain Control Centre, please read the following article: How can I perform a bulk domain transfer?
