Domain Transfers

TRANSFERRING A DOMAIN NAME AWAY FROM GML

 

To transfer any domain name away from GML services we require a signed request on headed paper in the name of the owner of the domain(s).

The owner is the entity we invoice in respect of domain registration fees.

We may require any outstanding balance on your account to be settled before we proceed with Domain transfers.

The information we require on the request depends on the type of domain as follows:

 
.uk domains

.UK domains (eg .co.uk) For .UK domains, the request needs to specify the outgoing domain name(s) and the new IPS TAG(s).

Example request: "Please transfer DOMAINNAME.CO.UK - new IPS TAG is JOKER"

 
All other domains

All other domains (eg .com) For all other domains the request needs to specify the outgoing domain name(s) and request that the domain is unlocked for transfer and an AUTH ID is provided.

 

Example request: "Please transfer DOMAINNAME.COM - unlock domain for transfer and provide AUTH ID"

The request should also include the email address or postal address the AUTH ID(s) are to be forwarded to.

Example: "Please email all AUTH IDs to myemail@myemail.com"


ICANN Registrant information

 
Please Note:
As per ICANN guidance registrars are allowed to charge for outgoing Domain transfers. Please see here.

For single Domain transfers we will charge the time taken in arranging and confirming the transfer at our standard rates. This will typically be 0.5 hours (0.25 to initiate the transfer and 0.25 to confirm it) but additional time may be accrued if you ask us to do anything outside this, including (but not limited to) providing you with the existing DNS records.

Any additional transfers requested alongside your first Domain name transfer request, whilst an existing transfer is in progress or within seven days of the completion of a transfer out will be subject to a charge of £100 plus VAT, per Domain, payable in advance.
