Transfer your domain name to Names.co.uk


If you need to transfer your domain name from your current registrar to a new registrar, we suggest using Names.co.uk. They are not a part of theimagefile and you certainly use any other registrar of your choice, but Names.co.uk have a support desk and is the registrar that theimagefile uses. Theimagefile does not offer email services however Names.co.uk can offer either a free email forwarding service (where all email is routed through to your normal email account) or for a small annual charge a mailbox service (typically known as POP3 account).

For more information email please refer to: the namesco email page.

To transfer your domain name first go to Names.co.uk web site and create a free account. Then start the transfer process using the steps below. Please note theimagefile can only offer advice and not support - we can not see or administer any part of your transfer on your behalf. There is a Names.co.uk transfers help desk available on 0845 363 3630 who you can contact with any queries.


Transfer a Nominet Domain name (ending .uk) to Names.co.uk

Names.co.uk do not charge for this transfer service. Please bear in mind that if there is a renewal already due, or soon to be due, once the domain is transferred to Namesco, you will receive a renewal notice from us.

  1. Enter the domain name you wish to transfer in the box on the transfer page so they can add a record of it to your account. This will allow them to quickly add full details of the domain name to your account once it has been transferred.
  2. Once you have added the domain name to your account in this way, you can create or configure DNS in advance using the DNS Administration tool. See Setting up your domain name with DNS through NamesCo
  3. Finally, ask your current provider to change the Nominet TAG on your domain name to 'NAMESCO'.

Notes
Whilst Names.co.uk do not charge for this transfer service, your current ISP might. If the charge is higher than £15.00+VAT, you may want to consider conducting the transfer directly with Nominet who charge £15.00+VAT (this price can change so please check on web site). You can contact Nominet on +44(0)1865 332244 or nominet@nominet.org.uk


Transfer a .com/.net/.org/.biz/.info/.mobi/.us domain

Transferring a .com .net .org .biz .info .mobi or .us (known as a Registrar Transfer) to Names.co.uk is relatively simple, provided that certain criteria are met.

A Registrar Transfer is a service for which Names.co.uk gets charged by the registrar. A nominal fee of £10+VAT is therefore charged for this service. However, each domain name that is successfully transferred automatically has 1 year added to the overall registration period for the domain. So, think of it as a two-fold process - 'consolidation and renewal' rolled into one.

The registrar transfer process usually takes between 4 and 10 days to complete, but please be aware that any problems that occur (e.g. the admin contact failing to authorise a transfer request on time etc...) can result in delays. For this reason, we strongly advise you to ensure that everything is in order with your current provider before beginning the transfer process.

Once the domain name has transferred to Names.co.uk and has been placed in your account, they will notify you by e-mail using the address we hold on your account.
