Domain Registration

Domains can be registered in Real-Time with the API AddDomain command.

command = AddDomain
domain  = (DOMAIN)

REQUIRED

ownercontact0 = (CONTACT)
admincontact0 = (CONTACT)
techcontact0 = (CONTACT)
billingcontact0 = (CONTACT)
nameserver0 = (NAMESERVER)
nameserver1 = (NAMESERVER)

OPTIONAL

auth = <TEXT> | <NULL>
transferlock = 0 | 1 | <NULL>
subuser = <TEXT> | <NULL>

Domain Transfer

The losing registrar has to inititate the transfer to push the domain to the gaining (new) registrar. The gaining registrar has to be aware of the planned domain transfer. Hence the transfer has to be requested with the API TransferDomain command.

command = TransferDomain
domain = (DOMAIN)

REQUIRED

action = REQUEST | APPROVE | DENY | CANCEL | USERTRANSFER
auth = <TEXT>

OPTIONAL

order = CREATE | REPLACE | UPDATE

subuser = <TEXT> | <NULL>
period = <PERIOD>
transferlock = 0 | 1 | <NULL>

Delete Domain

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

command = DeleteDomain
domain = (DOMAIN)

REQUIRED

n/a


Restore Domain

Restores can be processed in realtime. A restore is possible within 1 day upon deletion. Please use the command RestoreDomain.

command = RestoreDomain
domain = (DOMAIN)

OPTIONAL

renewalmode = <NULL> | <TEXT>
subuser = <TEXT>

Ownerchange

A Change of Registrant can only be directly processed by the registry.

Transfer procedure

First of all a transfer should be requested for the respective domain name with the TransferDomain command API .

Then the registrant of the domain name has to contact his current registrar and ask him to change the so-called Registrar-Tag to 1API-DE. As soon as this has been done, the domain name transfer will succeed automatically. Please note that when a .UK domain is transferred successfully, the remaining registration period remains unchanged. Please do not forget to initiate the transfer in our system, otherwise the domain can not be assigned to your account and will not be renewed.

The following overview shows you all available Domain Addons which can be used for this special kind of TLD. It also shows the respective API parameters which are required to activate the Domain Addons:

Addon Class Parameter to (de)activate *1) Renewal term *2) Affected Parameters *3)
Proxy (WHOISTRUSTEE_UK) X-ACCEPT-WHOISTRUSTEE-TAC = 0 | 1 1 month All Contacts






*1) Parameter to (de)activate: When accessing our backend through the API, you can either activate the addon with X-ACCEPT-WHOISTRUSTEE-TAC=1 or deactivate it with
      X-ACCEPT-WHOISTRUSTEE-TAC=0
*2) Renewal Term: Is the minimum renewal term of the "Addon Class"
*3) If you are using a "Proxy" Domain Addon normally all contact handles are affected (registrant, admin, tech, and billing contact).
      



Restore Process

To restore a domain as a RegistrarOC customer, you simply have to execute the RestoreDomain command. HEXONET directly forwards the restore request to the registry, which performs the restore in real-time. As soon as the restore is complete, the domain will get assigned to your account with the original domain data.

Please do not initiate a restore directly at the registry (e.g. using the registrar webinterface). All restore operations must be performed through our system.
