Transfer of .UK / .CO.UK / .ORG.UK / .ME.UK to Namecheap

Standard transfer requirements which are true for all gTLDs and for the majority of ccTLDs are not applicable to .UK:

1) .UK domains can be transferred within 60 days after registration or a previous transfer;
2) .UK domains do NOT support Transfer Lock;
3) .UK domains do NOT support Auth/EPP code;

Steps to transfer a .UK domain to Namecheap:

1. Change the IPS tag to NAMECHEAP-INC at the current registrar (you may do it either in your account with them or by contacting their support).
2. Submit the transfer at Namecheap.

Once the IPS tag is successfully updated to NAMECHEAP-INC (you can double-check it in public Whois) and the transfer order is placed, your domain should be added to your Namecheap account within several hours.

Note:

.UK transfers are free of charge and do not include domain renewal.
