How do I transfer my domain to you?

The transfer process for domain names varies, dependent on the type of domain in question.

 

UK domains (all domains that end .uk)

Domains ending in .uk require 2 simple steps to be completed to transfer them in instantly:

1) Update the Tag to STACK.

2) Complete the transfer via the 20i control panel.

To do these steps: 

  1. Ask your current domain provider to change the Tag of the domain name to STACK (most providers allow this via their control panel)
  2. Login to your account at My20i and click Transfer a Domain

Transfers from specific providers

We've also made some handy guides to transfer your domain from popular providers, so you can start saving on renewal fees. While the information is largely the same as above, they go in to detail about how to get what you need - like the Authorisation Code - from each specific provider.
