.UK domain transfers

Hover offers domain name registrations for .ORG.UK, .CO.UK, and .ME.UK in much the same way as we do with the .COM and .NET domain registrations.  

.UK domain names are registered at a central domain registry managed by NominetNominet’s transfer policy requires the losing Registrar (this is the company you are transferring away from) to change the domain's registrar tag before the transfer can be initiated. For domains that are being transferred to Hover, you will need to contact your current Registrar and ask them to change your domain's registrar tag to the following: TUCOWS-CA

Warning: As soon as you change the tag, the previous registrar might stop the DNS service.  If you do not want the web site to go down or the email service disrupted, please contact us before changing the tag.  If you are using third party name servers, you can change the tag without contacting us first.

After the TUCOWS-CA tag is placed on the domain, then we can move your domain over to Hover.  Please call us at 1-866-731-6556 or by email at help@hover.com to initiate your .UK domain transfer.
