What Is an IPS Tag

IPS tag stands for Internet Provider Security. This label was implemented by Nominet - the official domain registry of the United Kingdom - to exclusively identify the different registrars allowed to register .UK domains and keep track of all .UK domain registrations and transfers.

Each authorised registrar is assigned a unique IPS tag. For example, Crazy DomainsIPS tag is "DREAMSCAPE".

Note: The term "IPS tag" is now deemed obsolete by Nominet UK and has been renamed to "Registrar Tag".
