Terms and Conditions
 

Domain Registration

  • After a successful registration request, the registrant will receive an email by the registry to perform a verification process
    • If the verification was successful, the contact can be used for future registrations without additional verification
  • The status of the domain will be "PROCESSING" after the registration request, no matter if the registrant is verified or not
    • An automated process is checking the verification status and will finish the registration accordingly

Domain Transfer

  • A domain transfer must be initiated with a so-called "Authorisation Code", which can be obtained from the current registrar through the owner or Admin-C of the domain.
    • Please ensure, that you have a correct "Authorisation Code" associated with the domain, before initiating the transfer, otherwise it will fail.
  • Ensure that your respective domain does not have a lock-status (REGISTRAR-LOCK or HOLD). This can be seen in the WHOIS. If the domain is locked, then the owner can demand that this be unlocked.
  • Initiate the transfer on time and not just shortly before the domain expires.
  • Please ensure that the domain is older than 60 days otherwise the transfer will be denied.
