    I buy most of my domains at godaddy including .co.uk. If I were to sell a .co.uk domain is the push as simple as with .coms? Is it an instant transfer from one account to the other?

    I might be the only one but I had some serious problems with transferring away from Godaddy.

    It could be to do with the fact they are an American company thus deal with mainly the gTLDs rather then ccTLDs.

    If you was to push .uk's to another user on Godaddy you would not be transferring ownership but rather placing the domain in someone elses management. To change ownership of the domain, it needs to be done via Nominet (as Frog said).

    Thanx :D. Has this process changed, as I always understood that nominet were notoriously slow for account changes. Ive read the process and it seams similar to godaddy's push, yet I believed you had to sign papers and stuff.

    I can imagine so. With the amount of customers Nominet have, a paper based system would be extremely time-consuming and they must have had some serious growing pains in the support dept.
