Is the .uk domain extension a ccTLD?
It is. The acronym ‘ccTLD’ simply stands for ‘country code Top-level Domain’. There are more than 1,500 TLDs in use now, but back in 1985 when it all began, there were only seven: .com, .org, .net, .int., .edu, .gov, and .mil. Then came the country specific ones like .co.uk. And now, there is a domain extension to suit almost any business, industry, organisation, and blogger.
Can I transfer my .uk domain from another provider to LCN.com?
You can, and it’s easy peasy. All you need to do is follow the transfer in process via your LCN.com Account. Following that, get in touch with your current domain name provider and ask them to change the IPS TAG (short for Internet Provider Security Tag) to ‘LCN’. Once your current provider has updated the IPS Tag, the transfer should complete within a couple of hours - you can then monitor the transfer from your LCN.com account. If you have any issues along the way, our super helpful Support team can help.
