Transfer a non-UK domain from UKReg to NetWeaver

Stage 1

Log in to your UKReg control panel and the first thing you will need to do is unlock your domain name.

Go to ‘Domain Names’ in the ‘Hosting & Domains’ menu.

A list of all your domains will appear – click the domain you wish to unlock and transfer away.

Click the ‘Unlock’ link in the ‘Contacts & Ownership’ section and then confirm it when prompted to do so.

Then click ‘Transfer Options’ and ‘Transfer to a different provider’

You will then receive an email with the authorization code – you will need to provide this to us later on.

Stage 2

Log in to your My Netweaver account.

Click the ‘Domains’ menu and select ‘Transfer Domains to Us’

Enter your domain, entering your code from the previous step in the Authorization Code box.

Click ‘add to Cart’

If you wish to add hosting, you can do so here – otherwise, click ‘Continue’

The fee to transfer a domain name is the same as renewal, the process also renews the domain for a year – so the transfer itself doesn’t carry a cost.


Click ‘Checkout’ then ‘Complete Order’ on the following page.

Stage 3

Over the following hour, you will receive 1 or 2 authorization emails to the email address registered to the domain.  You need to follow the steps outlined in these emails to complete the transfer process.  If you ignore the emails then the transfer will fail and you’ll need to contact us to ask for it to be restarted.

The whole process usually only takes a couple of hours but can take up to 5 days in some circumstances.

Finally, you’ll receive an email from us to confirm that we have received the domain and you’ll then be able to manage it from your My NetWeaver account – including changing your nameservers to point to us when you’re ready.
