Transfer domain co.uk


#1

Hi All,

Im trying to transfer a domain name from 123reg.co.uk to be hosted under my dreamhost hosting. I have altered the nameservers to dreamhosts in the 123reg control panel. Its been 48 hours and im still getting the message:

enjays.co.uk is a sub-domain and cannot be registered with us”

what does this mean - I really need to transfer the domain across - is it possible?

Any help most appreciated

Martyn.

A lame hack may be to create a .co.uk domain in your account, then create enjays.co.uk. Though I’m hoping that someone in a similar situation as you responds.

I’m also wondering if you tried to do a name transfer, or did you only change the nameservers at your registrar. The WHOIS info is up to date, so it’s just a matter of setting up your “subdomain.”

The nameservers have been changed to DreamHosts now.
You now need to add your domain using manage|domains and then once that is added you can add a sub-domain.

sorry I wasnt all that clear -

I get the error message when I try to request the transfer of the domain name to dreamhost in the dreamhost panel.

So far all I have done is change the nameservers at my registrar.

You have mentioned - ‘its just a matter of setting up my sub-domain’

Do I need to transfer the domain name or can I simply set up the subdomain without transfering the site to dreamhost.

Sorry if this seems obvious - this is fairly new to me. I greatly appreciate your help.

Martyn.

Just to clarfy things for you.
You can add a domain (e.g. example.com) at anytime even before you have registered it. :slight_smile: There is no need to wait until the nameservers have been changed at the registrars.

If you get stuck just ask. Someone will be able to assist.
