​​ How to transfer a .UK domain to Cloudflare

Cloudflare currently supports the transfer of .uk,,, and domains. To transfer a .uk domain to Cloudflare from another registrar follow these steps:

  1. Log in go the Cloudflare dashboard and select your account.
  2. Select Domain Registration > Transfer Domains. Cloudflare will show you a list of domains that are eligible for transfer (see below for restrictions). If you do not see your domain, add the domain you want to transfer to your Cloudflare account before you try to transfer your .uk domain.
  3. Select the domains you wish to transfer.
  4. Proceed to checkout. Note that there is no fee to transfer a .uk domain and an additional year is NOT added during the transfer process.
  5. After checkout, request your current registrar to update the IPS tag to CLOUDFLARE. If the transfer is not completed within 24 hours, ask your registrar again to update the IPS tag. The transfer will be automatically canceled if not completed within 30 days.
  6. Cloudflare will receive a notice once your registrar updates the IPS tag. After that, we will finish transferring your domain.
