    So I've been out of the domain market for years, and selling Aid.co.uk and Aid.uk on domainlore which is ending today.

    I had aid.co.uk in my 123 reg account, and it appears in my nominet account too. Recently, 123 reg registered the .uk too which is in my 123 reg account (but not my nominet one).

    What's the best way to deal with this since I'll be transferring it over to the winner soon once the auction ends? Would it make sense to try get the .uk in my nominet account? (not sure if that's possible since I read up that 123 reg don't allow you to do transfers if the domain is new!?).

    Would really appreciate some advice - thanks.

    Um... if they are both in your 123reg account, they should both be in your Nominet account. Double check to make sure that aid.co.uk and aid.uk have the same owner/reg details/email etc in 123reg. What may have happened is that 123reg didn't apply your contact details to aid.uk properly?

    From a DL auctioning perspective, if the winner has their own self managed TAG, ask 123reg to do a TAG change, then the buyer can update the reg details themselves. If the winner wants you to transfer "the normal way" trigger a change of ownership from you Nominet panel - but you need to see both names, and send both on the same request. That way the buyer only has to pay the Nominet change fee once (as the change order is for both names on the same order).

    First step. Make sure you have access to both from your Nominet account...

    Thanks, I've checked the contact details and they are all identical. I'm getting on to 123 reg to see if there's something they've forgotten to do. If the worst comes to the worst I guess I'll just do the transfer of the .uk from 123 reg and then through Nominet for the .co.uk and pay the fees myself or something :)

    To save on transfer fee (Unless you have an SMT TAG) is to transfer them together as you can transfer as many as you like in one go and within one Nominet fee.

    Mystery solved - it's due to privacy protection on the new .uk domain so nominet can't see the email address to verify I own it - just need to change that to see it in my nominet account!

    That can't be right surely, Nominet can't see the email address associated with a domain?

    Apparently not according to Nominet. It does seem odd to me too though.

    In what sense? My guess it it's 123 reg's fault.

    Ooooooh maybe 123 reg set up the .uk domain under one of their emails?! Which in itself is silly but...it's 123 reg.

    I wouldn't take anything for granted when dealing with the likes of 123reg and others...:mad:

    Can confirm it was privacy related - both domains are now in my Nominet account :D

    I thought to register the .uk before the 24th you needed to use the exact same details including email, and if it's registered with that email it would auto show in your Nom account

    I would imagine this would actually be due to GDPR and support staff having restricted access to personal data, rather than Nominet not being able to see it.
