Transferring a .uk domain to Claranet SOHO

All .uk domains are managed using a tagging system. Each ISP is allocated a unique 'tag' by Nominet UK, the governing body which controls all such domains.

Control of a domain can be given to another internet provider simply by changing the tag attached to the domain. Our tag is CLARANET (all letters are uppercase).

To transfer your .uk domain to Claranet, ask your current provider to release the domain to our tag. When they have released the tag to us, we can then complete the transfer by updating the name servers. If done correctly, the whole process should only take a couple of days to fully move from one provider to another.

If you experience any problems transferring your .uk domain to us, click here to visit Nominet website where they will transfer the domain for you.

However, if you wish to transfer a .uk domain away from us, our dedicated hostmaster team can do this for you. To request this, you must email the change of Tag request to specifying the new Tag.
