    Just seen that names.co.uk charge £10 to unlock the domain so it can be transferred :mad:

    Anyone know how to get around this?

    To answer my own question, there is no way round this.

    You are stuck paying £12 (£10+VAT) to unlock your domain. My bad, I should have read the small print!

    What is annoying is that they sucked me in with £1 for the .com registration, then I got an email a few months later saying their prices had changed, and renewals would now be £22.99. Sneaky gits.

    Pro tip - don't use names.co.uk unless it is for churn and burn.
