The transfer has to be initiated by the gaining registrar and can be requested with the API TransferDomain command. A confirmation email will be sent out by the registry to the registrant. After the registrant has confirmed the transfer, it will be processed in real-time. Australian domains typically take up to 48 hours to transfer, provided there are no issues with the transfer such as incorrect details. This also depends on AusRegistry who handle the transfer but almost always it is within 48 hours.

[edit] Domain Registration

Domains can be registered with the API AddDomain command.

command = AddDomain
domain  = (DOMAIN)

REQUIRED

ownercontact0 = (CONTACT)
admincontact0 = (CONTACT)
techcontact0 = (CONTACT)
billingcontact0 = (CONTACT)
nameserver0 = (NAMESERVER)
nameserver1 = (NAMESERVER)
X-AU-REGISTRANT-ID-NUMBER = (TEXT)
X-AU-REGISTRANT-ID-TYPE = ABN | ACN | TM | OTHER

OPTIONAL

auth = (TEXT) | (NULL)
period = (PERIOD)
transferlock = 0 | 1 | (NULL)

Further information can be found at TLD specific

[edit] Domain Transfer

The transfer has to be initiated by the gaining registrar and can be requested with the API TransferDomain command. An "Authorisation Code" must be provided in the request, which can be obtained from the current registrar by the owner or Admin-C of the domain. The Auth-code can also be requested directly from AuDA at https://pw.auda.org.au/

Please ensure, that you have a correct "Authorisation Code" associated with the domain, before initiating the transfer, otherwise it will fail.

Our system will send an FoA email to the Registrant. Once the Registrant has approved the request by clicking on the link in the FoA email, the transfer request will be submitted to the Registry (typically, the transfer takes place immediately).

command = TransferDomain
domain = (DOMAIN)

REQUIRED

auth = <TEXT>

OPTIONAL

period = (PERIOD)
ownercontact0 = (CONTACT)
admincontact0 = (CONTACT)
techcontact0 = (CONTACT)
billingcontact0 = (CONTACT)
transferlock = 0 | 1 | (NULL)
action = REQUEST | APPROVE | DENY | CANCEL | USERTRANSFER

[edit] Delete Domain

Domains can be deleted with the API DeleteDomain command.
There is a Deletion Restorable Period of 1 day.

command = DeleteDomain
domain = (DOMAIN)

[edit] Restore Domain

Restores can be processed automatically but not in realtime. A restore is possible within 1 day upon deletion. Please use the command RestoreDomain.

command = RestoreDomain
domain = (DOMAIN)

OPTIONAL

subuser = (TEXT)
renewalmode = (NULL) | (TEXT)

[edit] Ownerchange

In order to change the owner you have to request a trade with the TradeDomain command. This can be done through our web interface or through our API:

command = TradeDomain
domain = (DOMAIN)

REQUIRED

Ownercontact0 = (CONTACT)
X-AU-REGISTRANT-ID-NUMBER = (TEXT)
X-AU-REGISTRANT-ID-TYPE = ABN | ACN | TM | OTHER

Once the trade has been requested, an FoA email is sent to both the losing and the gaining Registrants. Once both have clicked on the approval link, the request will be submitted to the Registry. This is typically processed in real-time.
