Detagged domains


Each .uk domain has a 'tag' associated with it. This lists the organisation that is responsible for maintaining your domain name on the registrants behalf, or their agent.

If you domain name is 'detagged', it most likely means that at some point the tag holder that was responsible for the name has decided they no longer wanted to be associated with it and requested nominet remove it from their account.

Only the tag holder or nominet has permission to make changes to a domain name. This means that if you have a detagged domain name you want to move to Microtech, you will need to ask Nominet ( to change the tag for you. They may make a small charge to do this. If there are any outstanding fees on the domain name, they may need confirmation from us first that we will accept any due fees. Make sure you have spoken to us first or requested a domain transfer via our web site so that we know to expect the domain.
