Transferring domain names to iRack Limited is an easy process but certain steps need to be taken to make sure the transfer of the domain name is a success. First of, you need to know the domain you wish to transfer. Is it a .co.uk domain or a .com domain for example?
Transferring a UK domain name to iRack Limited
If the domain name is a .co.uk/.org.uk/.uk/.me.uk/.ltd.uk/.net.uk/.plc.uk then you need to speak to your current domain registrar and get them to release the domain name to our IPS tag which is: LEGEND.
Once they have released the domain name to our IPS tag the domain name will get transferred over to us. Normally this is an instant process but depending on your current domain registrar this may take a couple of days to complete.
If you wish for us to change the nameservers on the domain name when the domain name is in our control please let us know via a support ticket through the clients portal or send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org with the information.
Transferring other domain names such as .com/.net/.org over to iRack Limited
Make sure you are the owner of the domain name according to the WHOIS database and the email in the owner and administrative contact belongs to you or you have access to the email address.
- Speak to your current domain name registrar and get them to unlock the domain name. Also get them to provide you with the transfer authorisation code.
- Once you have got confirmation the domain name is unlocked and have been provided the auth code - Log into your clients portal and click on the domains section. You will see an option to transfer in a domain name. Fill in the information (domain name and auth code) and this should start the domain transfer process.
If you have done the above then the process should start - It may take anywhere between 5 to 10 days for the transfer to be completed successfully.
If you wish us to change the nameservers on the domain name when the transfer has completed please let us know via a support ticket through the clients portal or send an email to: email@example.com with the information.
You may own a domain name that has a different transfer procedure - Speak to your current domain provider to see what that procedure is.
Please note transferring domain names over to iRack Limited only moves the domain name to us - It does not bring over your DNS zone file, website files or email services.
