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 or has the Domain Ownership Protection service enabled. For details on how to do this, please read our Support articles:

Step 3 of 3

Select the option you require:

  • Change Nameservers – enter your new hosts’ nameservers. Click here for further instructions on how to change your domain’s
  • Change IPS Tag – enter your new provider’s IPS Tag. Click here for further instructions on how to change your domain’s IPS tag.

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.
