I wanted to move a load of domains away from UK2.net, as a client of ours wanted us to handle everything for them – and we dont use UK2 for domain name regestration.
I searched the web, trying to find a guide on how to do it but it seems as if they’ve changed their procedure recently. Even the 123-reg domain transfer guide is out dated!
So here’s what i got sent from UK2 – and i thought i’d share it with you guys!
“If a domain name is transferred within the first 2 years of registration, an administration fee of £12.99 excluding VAT will be charged. The transfer or change of handle / tags will not take place until payment has been received in full.
Please go to http://www.uk2.net and select Account Login.
Once logged in (to the new “Dashboard” control panel) … Please update the Nameserver settings for the relevant domain to the ones specified by your new host. (You will need to find out the names of both the “new” Primary & Secondary “Nameservers” from your new hosting organisation).
From the Dashboard main menu select Domains, then select the specific Domain, then select the Change Nameservers option – and action this change.
Then in order to transfer your domain to another host please go to http://www.uk2.net/move_away/ Please fill out the move away screen – until the point where the screen shows your “cyber travel out” Order Number.
ONCE YOU HAVE ACTIONED THE “MOVE AWAY” PROCESS ABOVE – PLEASE REPLY TO THIS EMAIL QUOTING YOUR DOMAIN NAME(s) AND YOUR “CYBER TRAVEL OUT ORDER NUMBER(s).
UK2 require this confirmation from you before we can process your order(s).
Once UK2 have received your confirmation email reply we will usually process your cyber travel out order(s) within 2 working days.
Once this process has been fully completed the domain “Registrar IPS Tag” will be changed to that of your new hosts, and they can manage the domain themselves
ADDITIONALLY, IF YOU HAVE WEBSPACE WITH UK2 FOR THIS DOMAIN – Please go to www.uk2.net > Support > Submit a Ticket, and submit a Ticket to the Cancellations department.
In the Ticket please state – your Domain Name your cyber travel Order Number and state “Please CANCEL my Webspace for this Domain”.
What a stupid process!
