    Are they in your registrar account, 123-reg etc?

    Just re-read your original post.

    So you've bought domains from someone, and he's lost his login details? You've paid upfront and now he won't reply to emails. Correct?

    do you have an account with heart? if so you can request (heart) to email the other person to enable an internal transfer. I've had this asked of me by heart in the past.

    if you don't have an account then set one up, do the transfer then either keep them on heart or move the domains to your preferred account

    If you've got access to the email address associated with the whois details, you can access it via Nominet.

    Request your password here...

    https://secure.nominet.org.uk/auth/access-your-account.html

    Login to your Nominet account and pay for a tag change (£10+ VAT).

    In addition to the above...

    If all the details are your own except for the registrant name – initiate a transfer to yourself via your Nominet account. As part of that process, you can change the tag. Will save you paying two lots of £10.

    So are the domains registered in the companies name or the designers name? Have you checked the whois?

    What details do you have?

    Hi ,

    many thanks for the reply it's in the guys name that sold me the domain ,
    but the designer has the info for heart and won't reply to my requests .

    I don't have a heart account . I have the logins for the server/emails but not the main cp for domain . I just want the domain in my name .

    All legal ownership changes of .uk domains are handled by nominet (the registry for .uk domains) so any transfer will need to be done via the nominet account for the domain(s), not the heart internet control panel.

    If the domain(s) you are buying are associated with an email address belonging to the company they can use the link below to reset their password and login to their nominet account:
    https://secure.nominet.org.uk/auth/access-your-account.html

    If the domains have been "looked after" by their designer it might be his email address associated with them. In which case, the company (as the rightful owners), can gain access to their nominet account without an email address using the link below:
    https://secure.nominet.org.uk/flows/reestablish-identity.html

    The second option will cost £10 +VAT but should save you the hassle of contacting the designer.

    Hi Rob,

    Im currenly chasing this with heart as i said i have proof of the sale and it looks like the designer doesnt want to respond for some reason so if they cant do anything ill speak to Nominet.

    Thanks

    oh crap.. not sounding too good, afterall this so called designer could at the very least email back saying theres a delay in change of ownership or something.. but full on ignoring doesnt look promising.. unless he's on holiday and not been bothering to check his emails.. on holiday with your cash that is :/ :O hang in there a week or so and see if anything develops i guess... :confused:
