  • Change of Registrant Name / Registrant Transfer for .UK domain's.

    A Registrant transfer is the changing of the legal registrant (owner) of a .uk domain name from one entity to another.

    Every owner of .UK domain name has the access of Nominet control panel through which domain can be managed. Generally, if any .UK domain is registered using Nominet, an email is sent to Registrant/Administrative email ID, through which customer can log in to Nominet account (online) and manage the Domain. Never mind, if you don't have a password or have deleted the email, you can use the "lost your password" link which is at the bottom. You will need to enter email ID and within no time, you will receive an email from NOMINET with the New log in detail's of Online Nominet Account.

    If you want to change registrant name then you will need to log in to your "Nominet Online Services" account and select the 'Registrant Transfer’ service. Please note that this service will cost £10 plus VAT, which can be paid by either the existing or new owner.

    Hello,

    Ahh... Thanks Aaron for sharing the valuable Information.

    Here is something more that i would like to add.

    Change of Domain Registrant / Owner

    You do not need to change your domain ownership for any other reason.

    .au Domain Names

    Change of ownership costs $150 which will reset the licence. This effectively means your 2 year .au registration period starts from the day it is reset, and any previous registration period will be lost.

    You can update the details of a domain name from our domain name management section. However, you cannot change the company name or ownership from the domain section.

    Conditions under which the licence (ownership) of a .AU domain can be transferred.

    * The Registrant sells part or all of their business operations or assets to the proposed new Registrant, and the Deed of Sale includes the transfer of the domain name licence.


    * The Registrant assigns part or all of their intellectual property rights to the proposed new Registrant, and the Deed of Assignment includes the transfer of the domain name licence.


    * Where the Registrant is a legal entity, the Registrant is liquidated or enters into administration and the liquidator or administrator authorizes the transfer of the domain name licence to the proposed new Registrant


    * The Registrant and the proposed new Registrant are legal entities belonging to the same group of related entities, eg. where a parent company transfers its domain name licence to a subsidiary.


    * The Registrant is holding the domain name licence in their capacity as an agent of the proposed new Registrant, and at the time of registration the Registrant had entered into an agreement to transfer the domain name licence to the proposed new Registrant at a future date, eg. where a web designer, ISP, lawyer, accountant or other service provider registers a domain name on behalf of a client.


    * Where the Registrant is an individual, the Registrant dies or becomes insane and the executor or power of attorney authorises the transfer of the domain name licence to the proposed new Registrant.


    * A competent arbitrator, tribunal, court or legislative body orders the Registrant to transfer their domain name licence to the proposed new Registrant, eg. in the case of a proceeding under the .au Dispute Resolution Policy (auDRP).


    * The Registrant has entered into an agreement to transfer their domain name licence to the proposed new Registrant in settlement of a dispute between the parties, and the Deed of Settlement includes the transfer of the domain name licence, eg. where a trade mark infringement dispute is settled out of court.


    * AND if the proposed new Registrant is eligible for the domain under auDA policy.

    Registrant Name Change

    * You can change the ownership of all domain names easily with the exception of .AU domain names. .AU domain names cannot be freely marketed or sold.
