Procedures required to transfer a .GOV.UK domain name

downtime and complete it in the shortest period possible.
steps required to complete the transfer in good time are:

Searching, there is more than just Google!
Google search results are doctored, vetted, and manipulated. Reasons may
vary from monetizing to censorship, but every time your privacy is lost.
On a basic Google search the whole of the top of the page and bottom of
the page are
completely filled with paid-ads
- somewhere in the middle
you will find some organic links (results do differ with the search term
used), but every time the results are manipulated in such a way as to feed
towards Google earning more cash from your visit. Of course for a search
engine/directory to survive it must make a profit (unless funded some other
way) so you can expect some ads, but the WHOLE of the TOP PAGE! What are
they thinking?There are alternatives
which do not
compromise on your privacy
