UK Domain name transfers to WESH UK

This article applies to all UK domain names older than 60 days that end with .UK such as

  • .uk

If you are also transferring a website to us with your domain name then this needs to be done in 3 simple stages as follows:

Stage #1 - Copy your website

If you are transferring your website to us along with your .uk domain name then you will need to purchase web hosting with us in advance.

When purchasing your web hosting, select hosting only without a domain. "I will use My Existing Domain and update My Nameservers only".

We will then activate your account for you and email you all the account details so you can upload your website to our servers, set-up all your email accounts, database's, and anything else you wish to transfer in advance.

Stage #2 - Re-point your DNS Nameservers

Now that you have an exact copy of your .UK website on our servers, you will need to log-in to your current domain registration company account & change your domain names DNS Name Servers.

If you do not have the access to change your nameservers then simply contact your current support department and request them to change your domain DNS nameservers to ours, as found in your welcome email.

Stage #3 - Transfer your domain name

Now all you need to do is place your order for a domain name transfer through our website

UK Domain names do NOT need an authorisation/EPP code so please leave this box empty.

When you reach the final stage of the order simply enter your current login details for our billing system to add the domain transfer to your account.

You will then need to change your domain name TAG to "WESHUK"

Some hosting companies do not allow you to do this yourself so you should contact their support department to have them do it for you.

Some hosts may also ask you to fill out a form and fax it to them giving your authorisation to transfer the domain name & supply the new details. If you need any assistance at this stage, let us know, we're here to help.

Once this is done, you should receive an email from us to let you know that your domain name transfer has been successful and will now be managed by us.

If your transfer is not successful or has failed, you will receive an email from us to tell you why and what needs to be done about it. Please ask for help if you are not sure what to do.
