Transferring .uk domains away from Krystal

This article was posted in: Domain Names

We're sorry you want to transfer your domain away from us, but we want to make the process as easy and painless as possible, so here's what to do.


Step 1 - Obtain the new IPS Tag

Every Nominet registrar has what is called an IPS tag. Krystal's tag is simply (all uppercase) KRYSTAL. Before you can transfer your domain away, you must find out what the new registrar's IPS Tag is. If you are not absolutely sure, you can double check it against the list of registrars that Nominet maintain.


Step 2 - Manage your domains

Log into your Krystal Client area at http://krystal.co.uk/client and click on the DOMAINS button.


Step 3 - Manage your specific domain

Locate the domain you wish to transfer away and click the domain name itself.


Step 4 - Access the Retag page

Click Retag from the left hand menu.


Step 5 - Retag the domain

  1. Enter the new IPS Tag in the box provided.
  2. Click RELEASE DOMAIN.

WARNING : THIS IS NOT REVERSIBLE. ONCE A DOMAIN HAS BEEN RELEASED IT IS BEYOND OUR CONTROL AND CAN ONLY BE RETURNED BY THE OTHER REGISTRAR.
