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.
Domain transfers are processed in Real-Time.

command = TransferDomain
domain = (DOMAIN)

REQUIRED

auth = (TEXT)

OPTIONAL

period = (PERIOD)
transferlock = 0 | 1 | (NULL)

There is a Deletion Restorable Period of 59 days.

Restore Domain

Restores can be processed in realtime. A restore is possible within 59 days upon deletion. Please use the command RestoreDomain.

command = RestoreDomain

OPTIONAL

subuser = (TEXT)
renewalmode = (NULL) | (TEXT)

Further information can be found at TLD specific

Ownerchange

All contact information can be updated through the ModifyDomain command.

command = ModifyDomain

TLD specific

Special deletion information

You can choose, if the registry should delete the domain immediately or at the end of its term with the following extension:

X-AT-SCHEDULEDATE = expiration | now 

Optional:
Indicates, if the registry should delete the domain at the end of its term ("expiration") or immediately ("now"). If the parameter is not given the domain will be deleted at the end of its term.

If you do not have the consent of the registrant you should set the domain renewal mode to AUTOEXPIRE. This will cause a so-called BILLWITHDRAW at the registry at the end of the term of the domain. A BILLWITHDRAW means that the registrant will become the new billing contact of the domain and will be charged directly from the registry for the renewal of his domain.
As the .AT registry handles domain-deletions very strict, we highly recommend to save a written confirmation of your client for domain-transactions. In case that you have to delete domains immediately, e.g. in case of fraud, the only way is to delete the domain with the API DeleteDomain command and setting the parameter X-AT-SCHEDULEDATE to "now".

Authorization Code

If you want to transfer a .AT domain name without an authcode from the losing registrar, a so called "token" needs to be requested using the RequestDomainAuthInfo command:

command = RequestDomainAuthInfo
domain = (DOMAIN)

The special transfer token will be sent to the registrant email address by NIC.AT. In a second step, the TransferDomain command can be used with the "token" as authcode.

The token will be valid for 21 days once requested.

Registration

By default privacy protection is disabled. You can disclose the information with using the following extension:

X-AT-DISCLOSE = 0 | 1
X-AT-DISCLOSE-VOICE = 0 | 1
X-AT-DISCLOSE-FAX = 0 | 1
X-AT-DISCLOSE-EMAIL = 0 | 1 

It is not possible to mix enable/disable flags in one command.

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.
