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

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

OPTIONAL

order = CREATE | REPLACE | UPDATE
period = <PERIOD>
transferlock = 0 | 1 | <NULL>
subuser = <TEXT> | <NULL>

Delete Domain

Domains can be deleted with the API DeleteDomain command.
There is no Deletion Restorable Period and no Deletion Hold Period. Deleted domain names will be available for new registrations immediately.

command = DeleteDomain
domain = (DOMAIN)

Restore Domain

Restores are not possible.

command = RestoreDomain
domain = (DOMAIN)

OPTIONAL

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

Ownerchange

An Ownerchange is free of charge and can be done with the API ModifyDomain command.
PLEASE NOTE: The registry does not support contact handle updates directly. To update a domain's contact information, a new contact handle with the updated information must be created first. Then using this new contact handle and the ModifyDomain command, the domain's contact information can be changed.

Authorization code

There are special requirements regarding the format of the authorization code. Please consider the following restrictions, if you want to assign a new authorization code to a .COM domain:

  • Minimum 8 characters
  • having at least one (1) numeric,
  • one (1) alphabetic, and
  • one (1) special character


These syntax rules are legible as of November 14th, 2009. It is possible that updates for domains which still have an "old" AuthCode assigned, will fail with this error message:

505 AUTH - minimum 8 characters, containing at least one numeric, one alphabetic and one special character

You may generate a valid random auth code by adding this parameter to the ModifyDomain command:

GENERATERANDOMAUTH = 1

Example:

 command = ModifyDomain
 domain = domain.com
 generaterandomauth = 1

No special procedures.
