A Special Note About Transferring .uk and Domains to us
The .uk and domains use what is called a 'push transfer' process and they utilize what is called an IPS TAG. Before initiating a transfer of a .uk or domain, you must contact your current registrar and give them our IPS TAG which is PDR-IN Then you can submit an order to us to have your domain transferred.
