    Hi Guys

    First post so go easy ;)
    Found this forum accidentally through Google, and have spent the last few hours reading through a lot of posts and now my head hurts. (Information Overload)

    Here’s my problem… I want to move 100+ .uk domains and a few .com’s away from uk2 mainly because of there new email diversion costs, Heart Internet looks quite good but reading on hear it may not be as simple as I thought to move from UK2.

    Am I right in thinking that I can go to and move each domain individually which is going to take hours but incur no charges or go straight to and setup a mass transfer by emailing an Excel spreadsheet of the domains and then fill out a transfer form, Nominet will then change the tags to HEARTINTERNET all for £22+vat.

    Then I go to and transfer the domains to heart with no other transfer charges? Or have I misunderstood something?:confused: Will UK2 charge to release the domains? (all the Domains are over 2yrs old) are there any charges I have missed?

    I don’t fully understand the whole process and any advice would be most helpful.

    Regards, Mike

    Hi Mike,

    I think you have got the gist of it.

    You don't need to fill in a transfer form at Nominet, unless you are also changing the registrant name. I think you probably meant TAG change though.

    The losing registrar should not charge if Nominet make the TAG change for you, unless you owe them money for renewal fees etc.

    For the sake of £15 (plus VAT) I would get Nominet to do it too. Bulk TAG changes usually go through in a couple of days.
