CentralNic's Transfer Process

CentralNic manage a handful of second level domains, including .UK.COM, .UK.NET, .GB.COM & .EU.COM. The CentralNic transfer process is very similar to the TLD (.COM etc) transfer process.

  1. Go to your existing provider and check that your domain is unlocked. Not all providers give this option, and many CentralNic domains are unlocked by default.

  2. Obtain the 'authorisation code' from your existing provider. This will be an alphanumeric string of characters, and works like a secret password.

  3. Place your order with us. This will send an email to the admin contact to approve the transfer and enter the Authcode.
