A registrant name change (also known as an RNC) is the process of transferring the ownership of a domain name ending in .au from one party to another. A transfer of ownership involves complete re-registration of the domain for 2 years with the receiving entity, who will need to meet the eligibility requirements to hold the registration of the domain. There is an additional cost involved with this RNC to take place which will be discussed with you by our support team on your request.
The following requirements must be met to successfully complete the Registrant name change form:
How to change the ownership of a .AU domain name via Admin Panel
- - The domain name is currently registered with TPP Wholesale.
- - The domain name is correctly spelt
- - The current registrant contact details for the domain name are valid and accessible. A confirmation request will be sent to the registrant contact email address. Perform a whois search if this is not known.
- - The credit card details are valid.
- - The domain Authcode (EPP / Domain password).
An email will be sent to the current registrant which will instruct them to confirm or decline the registrant name change. Once confirmed, the domain ownership will be updated and the payment will be deducted directly from your prepaid account (allowing you to manage billing of your own customer). Note that the white label registrant name change form is still available for resellers who want us to handle billing for their customers – simply set your retail price and provide the direct transfer of ownership link to your customer. Speak with our reseller support team if you need help with this.
