Tsohost is now an Accredited Nominet Registrar

Posted Monday 28th Apr, 2014 by


We're pleased to announce that we are now one of the first registrars to become an Accredited Channel Partner with the top tier of classification with Nominet, the .UK registry.

Tsohost has been a Nominet member for over a decade - Since 2003!

Since then we've grown quickly and we're now the 17th largest .UK Registrar and one of the fastest growing now managing over 80,000 .UK domains.

Following the new registrar agreement which came into effect on 18th March 2014, different tag classifications (Self-Managed, Channel Partner and Accredited Channel Partner) was introduced enabling nominet registrars to choose the most appropriate classification for their use. We knew that the best way to serve our customers was to become an Accredited Channel Partner.

The accredited channel partner status means that as a registrar we have demonstrated high standards of data quality and service commitment to our customers.

We are also required to follow strict criteria as a business to ensure we have in place the proper processes and assurances so that customers can know they are in safe hands when using our domain registration and other services.

Registrant Transfers

As an accredited channel partner we're now able to perform domain registrant ownership changes for free, previously these needed to be done directly with Nominet and carried a £10+VAT fee.

This means Tsohost is empowered to be able to help you better manage your domains and ensure your data is always accurate and up-to-date. If you need to change the Registrant on your .UK domains, simply submit a ticket and we'll be glad to help!

If you have any queries about what this means for your domains, or have any questions about how Tsohost manages domains feel free to get in touch by emailing support@tsohost.com (Put your subject as "FAO: Dan" to get your answer straight from Dan, our Tsohost Domains Manager).

Spending this Sunday working on some hosting/domain housekeeping I sent a support ticket in for a Registrant Transfer on one of my domains.
Despite it being a very sunny day bang in the middle of a Bank Holiday weekend in less than an hour I’ve a message back informing me it’s been completed!
Having now done my domain housekeeping I’m going to stroll down to Tesco and buy some cold beers for this evenings bbq with the £12 Nominet fee you saved me!
Nice one! Keep up the great support guys!
Chris :-)

Looks as though I’ve just become a TSOHOST customer at the right time….I was just about to arrange my domain registrant transfer with Nominet…..saved £10.00 already!!!

@Chiemeka Thanks ever so much! Our new accreditation hasn’t affected the domain transfer process at all. All .UK domain names can be transferred to us for free, likewise for all other domains, where we only charge for a years renewal.

Firstly, congratulations. As a company that has consistently delivered on top quality customer service, this is deserving. Our experience of this has remained, in fact increasingly, positive.

What does this new stautus mean with regards to transferring domains from another registrant to TSO host?

Many thanks.

You don’t find enough reliable and honest hosts like this anymore - most would charge the same fee and pocket the extra, good to know we’re with you :)
