[edit] Domain Registration

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

command = AddDomain
domain  = (DOMAIN)


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


secdns-ds# = <LONGTEXT> | <NULL>
secdns-key# = <LONGTEXT> | <NULL>
secdns-maxsiglife = <INT>

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

nameserverset = <TEXT> | <NULL>

[edit] 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 Registrar or denied ("NACK") by Registrar. If the registry receives neither a denial ("NACK") nor an approval ("ACK") the transfer will be ACKed after 5 days.

Please note that HEXONET is acting in compliance with ICANN Transfers Guidelines. The respective policies can be viewed under :

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

command = TransferDomain

[edit] Addons

[edit] RegistrarOC

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, please execute the RestoreDomain command. Please note that the restore will be handled manually and the domain will not be available in real-time.
