Yes. Transferring an existing .co.uk domain to 1&1 IONOS is simple. In contrast to domains like .com, .org
, UK domains (.co.uk or .org.uk) do not require authorisation codes. Instead, they use IPS tags, which were implemented by the UK registry (Nominet) in order to control domain name transfers. There is a step by step instruction on our help center for transferring your domain to 1&1 IONOS. First you have to choose the option "Transfer domain from another provider" within the 1&1 IONOS Control Panel. Then you have to insert your domain name und click on the button "transfer domain". In the next step, you will need to contact the company where your domain is currently registered and have the domain's IPS tag changed to "SCHLUND". Now, the transfer process can be initiated.
