Domain Transfer

The transfer has to be initiated by the gaining registrar and can be requested with the API TransferDomain command.
A valid Authorization Code must be provided to initiate a transfer successfully. You may obtain the authorization code from the losing registrar.
As soon as a domain transfer has been initiated it can either be approved ("ACK") by Customer or denied ("NACK") by Registry.

Please note that HEXONET is acting in compliance with ICANN Transfers Guidelines. The respective policies can be viewed under http://www.icann.org/transfers/ :

As soon as you have submitted a transfer request, the HEXONET system will send an email to the domain registrant/administrative contact, asking for approval. As soon as this email has been confirmed, the transfer is initiated through the official registry and the losing registrar will receive the transfer request. The losing registrar will then send an email to the domain registrant/administrative contact, allowing him/her to cancel or deny the pending transfer. If there is no response received within 5 days, the transfer will automatically be processed.

If the email address in the WHOIS is invalid, then the transfer cannot be processed. If this is the case, then kindly contact your current registrar and ask them to update the WHOIS information accordingly. If you do not know the name of the registrar simply perform a WHOIS search at http://www.hexonet.net/

Ownerchange

All contact information with the exception of registrant Name, Firstname and Organisation can be updated through the ModifyDomain command.
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:

domain = <DOMAIN>
ownercontact0 = <CONTACT>


A Change of Registrar with the simultaneous change in the Registrant is possible. The trade request also includes a transfer request if the domain is currently managed by another registrar.

1. Individual:
If you are an individual, you have to state the following parameters:







  French registrants have to provide the place of birth in the form <ZIP code>,<City>
         (e.g. "78181, Saint Quentin en Yvelines Cedex").
Non-French registrants simply have to provide the <TWO-LETTER COUNTRY CODE> of their country of birth (e.g. "DE").

2. Company: Companies having their head office in the territory of the European Union: The VAT must be provided through an extension:




French company with a SIREN or SIRET number should continue to provide this number instead as legal id. The SIREN (Système d’Identification du Répertoire des Entreprises) number is the first part of the SIRET NUMBER and consists of 9 digits. The SIRET (Système d’Identification du Répertoire des Etablissements) number is a unique identification number with 14 digits.


3. Companies with a European trademark: For companies with a European trademark can additionally add their trademark number using this extension:




4. Companies with a DUNS number: The DUNS number is a nine-digit number, issued by Dun & Bradstreet. DUNS is the abbreviation of Data Universal Numbering System. Companies with a valid DUNS number are still obliged having their head office in the territory of the European Union. The DUNS number can be provided using this extension:




5. Companies with a local identifier specific to a country of the European Economic Area can provide their local identifier using this extension:




6. French associations listed with the Journal Officiel de la République Française - The official gazette of the French Republic: The Journal Official Associations publishes notices of creations, breakup or substantial changes with nonprofit associations in France. Using the website http://www.societe.com and the database they provide, query for the respective data below to register a .FR domain name.




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:

      X-FR-ACCEPT-TRUSTEE-TAC=0
*2) Renewal Term: Is the minimum renewal term of the "Addon Class"

ICANN Whois Data Reminder Policy (WDRP)

At least annually, a registrar must present to the registrant the current Whois information, and remind the registrant that provision of false Whois information can be grounds for cancellation of his domain name registration. Registrants must review their Whois data, and make any corrections.

ICANN Registrar Data Escrow Program (RDE)

Under the data escrow provision of the Registrar Accreditation Agreement (RAA), all ICANN-accredited registrars must regularly deposit a backup copy of their gTLD registration data with ICANN through ICANN's arrangement with Iron Mountain or they may elect to use a Third Party Provider of RDE services that has been approved by ICANN.

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.
