How long will it take to transfer my domain in?

Typically, the following timescales apply:- 

.uk Domains - once the IPS TAG change request has been processed by your existing registrar, your domain can be transferred into your account immediately. 

gTLD (.com, .net, etc) Domains - The authorisation email will be sent within a few hours of submitting the transfer request. Once this has been responded to, your transfer should complete within 5-7 days. 

Other Domains - Transfers typically take up to 7 days to be processed. 

Please note that if you are switching to Powered By Penguins' nameserversDNS propagation times will apply - this is usually 3-6 hours, but can potentially be up to 72 for all users.
