How to transfer your domain to BusinessWebFactory.com

Domain transfer may sound a daunting task but it is actually quite simple if you follow these simple guides.

What type of domain do you have?

This is the most important question as the transfer process varies depending on what type of domain name you have.

If you have a .co.uk domain name the process is quite simple (just follow the instructions below) and you can even get the UK registry to handle it for you.

It becomes a little more complex if you don’t have a .co.uk domain name as it will involve following further instructions sent to you by email. It is vital that you have the correct email set for your site administration otherwise these instructions will be lost.
