Transferring a .uk domain away from 123 Reg
To transfer a .uk domain name away from 123 Reg, you will need the IPS tag and the nameservers of the provider that you are transferring to. Once you have them, please follow these instructions:
Please note: before proceeding, you’ll need to make sure that your domain isn’t locked. In addition to this, if you have an older version of our Domain Ownership Protection service (purchased before August 2023) in place on your domain, you may need to disable this service. For details on how to do this, please read the following articles:
- How do I turn off Domain Ownership Protection (‘DOP’) for my domains?
- How do I lock/unlock my domain name?
If, however, you have our current Domain Ownership Protection service (purchased after August 2023) assigned to your domain, please continue reading.
Start by logging in to your 123 Reg Control Panel.
Next, select Manage All opposite Domains within the ‘All Products and Services’ section.
You will now see a complete list of your purchased domain names. Select the domain you want to update from the provided list.
If you can’t find your domain in this list, you may be able to find it on the Domain Name Overview page within our legacy Control Panel. For more details on this, please read the following article: How do I access and manage my products?
This will take you to the overview page for your chosen domain. If you’re using our current Control Panel, select Transfer to Another Registrar in the Transfer section.
If you’re using our legacy Control Panel, you can select Change Nameservers or Change IPS Tag.
If you’ve enabled Domain Ownership Protection on your domain, you will need to verify your identity. This can be done via 2-Step Verification or by entering the one-time password that will be sent to your email address.
Enter your code into the provided field and click Verify.
If you’re using our current Control Panel, you’ll need to enter your new provider’s IPS tag into the provided field.
If you’re using our legacy Control Panel, you will need to enter your new hosts’ nameservers or IPS Tag, depending on what you chose earlier.
Please note: It normally takes approximately 12-24 hours for this to update. However, some providers have a “handshake” system where they will need to approve the transfer in and therefore the IPS tag may not update automatically. Please check with your new provider if they have this process in place, so that they can approve the transfer once you have changed the TAG.
