If your website is currently registered with Fasthosts using domain name such as .uk,,,,, and you wish to transfer the domain name and services to 123 Simples, then this article will show you how to prepare your Fasthosts domain for a transfer to our servers.

3. The IPS Tag of your new registration provider.


Please note that certain domains (.com, .net, .org, .info, .biz, .mobi, .cc and .tv) must be registered under your name for at least 60 days before they can be transferred to a different provider. This is required by the ICANN directive and applies to all providers.

Any information that needs updating will be highlighted in red. Simply, enter your details then click Save Contact to continue.

Click the Transfer Out link in the Contacts & ownership title.

On the next page, select an option from the Why are you transferring out? dropdown and click Continue to Transfer Out. Click the I Still Want To Transfer Out button to confirm that you want to transfer your domain away from Fasthosts.

Step 3 - Enter our IPS Tag -

Enter the IPS tag WEBSITELIVE in the text box provided and click Transfer Out.
