Straightforward, with minimal delays, often instant, requires all payments to be made in Pounds Sterling (GBP). Payments can also be wired to our account from outside of the UK, but currency conversion or other payment fees are the responsibility of the buyer. Once the full amount is in our account then we’ll initiate the transfer of the domain.
The most secure method of payment for both buyer and seller, using an independent intermediary to handle the transaction and changeover of ownership. The process is somewhat more complicated, and takes longer to complete. The buyer is required to create an account at Escrow.com and to complete the required actions requested via Escrow.com emails.
Finalise The Deal
Now that you have full ownership of your domain name we strongly recommend that you check the Nominet WHOIS record for your domain to ensure that Data Validation has been successful. Contact details used must match those that are publically available (such as at Companies House, electoral register, etc.) in order to be sure that Nominet are able to verify you or your company.
To have control of your domain you need to transfer it into your account at your chosen domain registrar, eg. GoDaddy, 1&1 Internet, 123-Reg etc. Normally this is a free process, and has to be initiated by yourself or your web developer.
Now the domain is under your control you should set the contact email address associated with it, as this is used for renewal reminder emails. Be wary of using personal addresses belonging to employees as these tend to expire over time. Use an address you know to be permanent or you risk losing your domain name when your next renewal is due. These changes will need to be done via the control panel of the account at your chosen domain registrar.
