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;

To transfer your .UK domain to Namecheap, you need to change its IPS tag to NAMECHEAP-INC at the current registrar (you may do it either in your account with them or by contacting their support) and purchase the transfer at Namecheap.

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