Registering a domain

Some country specific domains have requirements for registration – please check that you meet these requirements where relevant.

Transferring in and out

The price for transferring a domain to us is the same as for a 1 year renewal (except for .co.uk and .org.uk domains, which are free to transfer).

When a domain is transferred it will also be renewed for 1 year (again, except for .co.uk and .org.uk domains).

There is no charge to transfer a domain away from Firstserv.

For detailed instructions on how to transfer a domain to or from Firstserv, please check our knowledgebase.

Renewal reminders

We invoice for domain renewal 30 days in advance, and send renewal reminders before domain expiry. Please ensure that your email address in our control panel is up-to-date, and that invoices are paid promptly. Domains will be automatically renewed once payment is received.
