    I'm not happy with my present registrar and am looking to move my my few (all working site) domains away. His site doesn't mention any "Transfer Out" charge (they say "Transfer In" is free - of course) so can he dream up any figure he likes to charge me?
    Before I move, I want to know who will charge least to Transfer Out should I find *him* give as poor service as my present guy. Anyone know which registrar is cheapest when transferring away?

    123-reg don't charge either way. If you get charged more than £15+VAT per domain to change the IPSTAG, nominet will do it for you at that price, or £30+VAT for a bulk lot (2 or more).

    Regardless of where they are or how much your registrar charges you, Nominet can make the changes for you (as long as .uk). So if UK2 wants £12 +vat with no discount on bulk transfers then you'd be better off letting Nominet do the changes.

    Yup this is correct because we have about 26 co.uk's with SRSPlus to move onto our TAG, and because SRSPlus don't appear to do TAG changes, we are doing a bulk move via Nominet.
