Transferring a domain


Heya there,

I want to transfer my domain from 123-reg to dreamhost.

Presently, dreamhost is hosting the content, and 123-reg is just managing the domain registration. I’ve looked through previous posts and help pages on the wiki, but I’m struggling to find how to transfer this domain.

What is it that I need to do at 123-reg to be able to transfer the domain away? Unlock it? Get some auth code?

Any help would be greatly appreciated! :slight_smile:




I work here at 123-reg.

If you wish you can keep the domain name with 123-reg and still host the domain name at 123-reg, you would just need to point the domain name at your hosting, which is often done by changing the domain names A records. You can find details on how to do this here:

If you need to transfer a .uk domain name away from us you will need to change the IPS Tag of the domain name to your new providers IPS Tag which Dreamhost will be ale to provide you with. Once you have this please follow the steps in the guide below:

If I can be of any further help please do let me know.
