The registry Max.MD has exclusivity within approx. 92 different countries meaning that .MD domains can only be registered for registrants from these countries. In the event, that the owner changes from e.g. .US to an Austrian entity, then you are no longer able to renew this domain through us. The registrant will receive a renewal notice from Register.MD and the customer can only renew his domain through them.

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 short time. As soon as the restore has been completed by the registry, 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.
