An IPS tag is a tag that was implemented by the UK registry (Nominet), to control domain name transfers. An IPS tag looks like a sequence of capital letters and numbers, sometimes with a hyphen.
Every UK domain name ( .co.uk, .org.uk, .net.uk, etc.) must have an IPS tag specified to confirm which registrar currently holds the domain. This protects domains from being transferred away from a current owner. Only the current tagholder (registrar) or Nominet is able to update a domain's IPS tag.
  • Currently, it is not possible to transfer your UK Domain Name to Wix for hosting. However, you can easily connect the domain name to your Wix site. 
  • If you are trying to transfer a .co.uk domain purchased from Wix, see this article.
