Take note: you are able to update the contact name if the domain is registered on a company name.

  1. The first option requires a few steps in the Domain Manager
  • Create or select a contact handle to use for the registrant change, for a detailed description of how to create a contact handle, check the contacts knowledgebase article.

Take note: make sure contact details are valid, Nominet checks data quality for each .*.UK/.UK domain against third party databases like Dunn and Brad street or the Dutch chamber of commerce for example.

  • Update the domain to the new registrant contact and act as a designated agent for both the old and new registrant. For a detailed description of how to update domains through the Domain Manager, check the update a single domain knowledgebase article.
  • Once requested and approved, the registrant change will complete instantly and both the old and new registrant get notified through email.

   2. Through the portal of Nominet. This will have to be done by the registrant themselves. This is free of charge for you as a reseller. The registrant will be charged with a fee him/herself through the Nominet portal.

Take note: any incorrect changes that have to be corrected by support will be charged to your account balance.

   3. Through Nominet support, an administrative fee may apply, but the registrant update is processed directly at Nominet.

Take note: when using options 2 or 3 after for the registrant change at Nominet the domain has to be synced by our support department to show the changes. Request the sync through e-mail with our support department. Until the sync is executed, the old registrant data will remain visible in the Domain Manager and through API.
