Nominet joins the 21st Century

On 25 June 2008 Nominet (the body that oversees .co.uk domains) will be replacing the laborious system of paper based domain name transfers with an online system. This brings Nominet in line with the transfers of top level domians. (ie .com)

The fee will be the same (£10 per transfer) but the administration burden should be dramatically reduced without the need for letters of confirmation from the assignor and assignee. The bulk transfer fee is also being reduced from £22 to £10.

This move is to be welcomed and not before time.
