    hi all, I've just recently bought a .co.uk domain from a seller abroad. They are asking how I want the domain transferred. I've asked them to transfer it via nominet to my email address. They have said they cannot do this, but they could either push it to another Enom account if I create one, change the ips tag or change the owner in the admin.

    What's the best way to get it to my 1and1 account ? When buying domains I usually just ask the seller to transfer to my nominet account, and then transfer the domain via my 1and1 account.

    If they changed the admin owner to my name and address would it automatically transfer to my nominet account? Even without transferring it to my nominet email address?

    If they changed the registrant email to the one you've used at nominet it should show up automatically in your nom account. Thats what I normally do with namecheap.

    Hi Mark, If they are getting in a pickle you are welcome to get them to change it to my IPS tag and I will then get it over to your nom account for you. FOC

    With the quality of names you have I'm surprised you hold them with 1&1
