Any advice on how to transfer a .co.uk domain away from OnlineNIC to GoDaddy. I was told that the "tag" needs to be changed to GODADDY, however I do not see anything in our control panel for doing this.
When I contacted support, they claim to be unable to change the tag to GODADDY because their transfer-out system is broken. I know this is untrue, because I transferred 2 other domains away from them a few days ago without a problem.
I really can't wait for them to go out of existence. They have got to be the worst domain registrar out there.
Before you do all this you want to check that GoDaddy is set up to receive transfers of .uk domains. I have a vague recollection that I read somewhere that they will register .uk domains but don't have a mechanism for dealing with inbound transfers. This may no longer be the case but you really want to check...
And just to make this absolutely clear - the fee you pay to Nominet is an administration fee which covers the tag change itself and nothing else.
