Anyone who registers a domain name has their personal or business details listed publicly on the WHOIS database by default. Protect yourself against spam and identity theft with our domain privacy service.
Domain transfers the LCN way…
Easy domain transfers
Domain transfers have caused many a headache, but not with us! Get the ball rolling by unlocking your domain at your existing provider, then simply submit your domain to us.You can monitor the process every step of the way from your control panel.
One year domain extension
If you pay a transfer fee when moving your domain, we’ll extend the expiry date on your domain name by an extra year. The transfer fee for most domain names start from just $6.19 – much cheaper than a typical one-year domain name renewal.
Enormous multi-year discounts
So your domain name transfer is complete, but what about your next renewal? Well, this is when we can save you some real money. We offer massive discounts – up to 30% – when you renew for multiple years.

Frequently asked questions about our domain transfer
How much does a domain transfer cost?
It depends on what type of domain extension you want to transfer. Nominet domains like .uk, .co.uk, .org.uk are totally free to transfer. Most other domain extension types have a fee, but this price usually includes a 1 year renewal. The table below explains it all.
For regular domain registration and renewal rates, please see our domain pricing page.
How long does it take transfer a domain?
Again, it depends on the extension. Generally speaking a domain transfer should take no more than a week. .uk domains usually only takes a couple of days. For more information about transferring a domain to us, check out our domain transfers support guide.
How do I unlock my domain and what’s an EPP code?
Your current domain name provider will need to unlock your domain name before it can be moved to us. This can usually be done from your provider’s control panel but in some cases you’ll need to contact them directly.
They’ll give you a string of characters called an EPP code, also known as an auth code. Keep a note of it, as it needs to be entered at LCN.com when you start the domain transfer service at our end. Just to confuse things, .uk domains have an IPS tag instead of EPP codes.
What’s an IPS tag?
.uk domains don’t have EPP codes because the domain transfer process is slightly different. To move your .uk domains you’ll need to change the IPS tag on your domain – again this can be done via your current domain providers control panel, or by getting in touch with their support team.
To move to LCN you’ll need to change the IPS tag to “LCN”. That’s all there is to it for .uk domains.
Any hidden fees?
No. We don’t do hidden fees – we’d feel too guilty. We’re always transparent with our prices and billing, and you can easily access all your invoices and payment details from your account at any time.
