    Process of selling a domain name and handing it over

    Hi there,

    I would appreciate some help on this subject.

    I am looking into selling two domain names that I own and am wondering about the after-sales process of transferring the domain name to the new owner.

    My two names are FindYourPartner.net and FindYourPartner.co.uk

    For the .co.uk , should I go through nominet?

    Kind Regards

    James

    New owner will initiate a transfer domain procedure and you have to confirm it. If new owner has same registrar, then you can 'push' the domain to his account.

    Kish is correct. You will have to complete a transfer process with Nominet for the .co.uk to change the ownership over to the new owner. This process requires both parties to fill out a form and draft a letter, once both parties have done this they must be sent to Nominet along with a payment of 35 (i think) that covers that admin fees to transfer the domain ownership. Make sure that you state who pays the fees when neogotiating the price/transfer process with the new owner.
