Just follow the instructions below to move your domain to expiry.com, the UK’s largest web host.

  1. Log in using your account number and password
  2. Choose the contract which contains the domains
  3. Select whether you want to ‘Cancel Entire Contract’ or ‘Cancel Selected Domains’
  4. Choose the “Execute On” for the domain
  5. Change the cancellation option to “Change Provider”
  6. Click “Continue”
  7. Enter our IPS tag: ENOM
  8. Click “Finish”
  9. 1and1 will send you an email to confirm you are the owner and complete the final transfer
