Transferring your .UK domain to StableHost is a simple and efficient process. We've outlined the steps below to guide you through the seamless transfer of your domain, ensuring that your online presence remains uninterrupted and hassle-free.

To kickstart the .UK domain transfer process, reach out to your current domain Registrar. Request them to set your domain's IPS tag to "ABNAME-SE." This specific tag is essential for facilitating the smooth transition of your domain to StableHost. Your Registrar will be able to assist you in making this change, ensuring that your domain is prepared for the transfer.

Once your current Registrar has successfully changed the IPS tag to "ABNAME-SE," it's time to verify the update. Ensure that the tag change is completed and active. This step is crucial to guarantee that your domain is in the correct state for the transfer process to begin.

With the IPS tag changed and verified, contact us to initiate the domain transfer process. Our dedicated support team is here to assist you every step of the way. Reach out via email or live chat. Provide us with the necessary details, including your domain name and any relevant information about the IPS tag change. Our experts will guide you through the subsequent steps, ensuring a seamless transfer experience.

In the rare event that your current Registrar is unable or unwilling to make the IPS tag change, don't worry. You have the option to contact Nominet directly, the official registry for .UK domains, at Nominet's experienced team will assist you in facilitating the tag change, ensuring that your domain is prepared for the transfer to StableHost.
