What is an IPS Tag?

In this article we will explain what an IPS tag is and how it is used with .co.uk and .uk domain names.

IPS stands for Internet Provider Security and these tags are used by Nominet to identity the hosting company linked to a specific .co.uk or .uk domain name.

Also known as a Nominet Provider Tag or IPS Key, it is always in the format of a single alpha-numeric code and all in capital letters.

The IPS Tag to transfer .co.uk and .uk domain names to Unlimited Reseller Hosting is PDR-IN. 

All domain name registrars will have a different procedure on how they release domain names so please check with your current provider and release the domain before attempting to transfer this to ourselves.
