Domains can be registered with the API AddDomain command.
command = AddDomain domain = (DOMAIN)
ownercontact0 = (CONTACT) admincontact0 = (CONTACT) techcontact0 = (CONTACT) billingcontact0 = (CONTACT) nameserver0 = (NAMESERVER) nameserver1 = (NAMESERVER) X-REGISTRANT-VATID = VatID of the company (only for companies) X-ADMIN-VATID = VatID of the company (only for companies)
auth = <TEXT> | <NULL> transferlock = 0 | 1 | <NULL> subuser = <TEXT> | <NULL> X-DK-REGISTRANT-CONTACT = (CONTACT) | <NULL> X-DK-ADMIN-CONTACT = (CONTACT) | <NULL>
The transferlock and authcode are only supported for USERTRANSFERS inside HEXONET. The registry itself does not support both!
The transfer has to be initiated by the gaining registrar and can be requested with the API TransferDomain command.
command = TransferDomain domain = (DOMAIN)
action = REQUEST | APPROVE | DENY | CANCEL | USERTRANSFER auth = <TEXT> period = <PERIOD>
command = DeleteDomain domain = (DOMAIN)
If a .DK domain is deleted, HEXONET will push it to the registry, the registrant will be the future billing contact. So this is not a real deletion as only the registrant is able to delete the domain name at the registry!
Restore of .DK domains can be realized by using the TransferDomain command. An authcode is not required.
A Change of Registrant can only be directly processed by the registry. It can be done by the current domain owner by logging into the self-service portal on this link: .DK Self-service.
If the registration was successful, the owner receives an email from HostmasterDK with a login and a Pincode. Example of a confirmation email:
ORDER CONFIRMATION yourdomain.dk On xx.xx.2008 we reserved the above domain name for you. REGISTRANT -------------------------- User ID: xxxxxx-DK Pincode: xxxx Both User ID and '''Pincode''' are needed for the activation and further modifications of the domain.
Please note that you have to state the VAT-ID during the registration if the owner/admin contact is a organization (company). The VAT-ID is required and can be specified on creating or modifying the contact handle of the registrant / admin contact. Further information about creating contact handles can be found here: AddContact
command = AddDomain domain = yourdomain.dk ... X-REGISTRANT-VATID = VatID of the company ... X-ADMIN-VATID = VatID of the company
No refund in case of failed registrations
Registrations by using an existing User ID
Customers with an existing DK-HOSTMASTER account can provide their User ID in order to place newly registered domains on their existing account. This only applies to .DK domains.
command = AddDomain domain = yourdomain.dk ... X-DK-REGISTRANT-CONTACT = (CONTACT) X-DK-ADMIN-CONTACT = (CONTACT) ...
To activate your registered .DK domain, please proceed as follows:
1. Visit http://dk-hostmaster.dk
2. Log in with the Login and Pincode you received by mail.
3. You will get to your "domain name list", where your domain name(s), status, and expiration date is listed.
4. Click on your domain name.
5. You will see a site called "domain name information", where the contact and nameserver information to your domain is listed.
6. On the right, you will find a Danish link: "aktiver domænenavnet". Click it.
7. You will have to re-enter your Login and Pincode.
8. WARNING! The following steps are only available in Danish! Don't click on the English link, it will guide you to the start page!
The first page again shows your owner contact data, which you have to confirm. After this confirmation, you will get a red warning message that your contact data will be provided in the official DK-WHOIS. The next page shows you 2 text areas with the General Terms and Agreements and the Policies of the .DK domain names. You have to scroll down and "read" those text areas. Then you have to click the second choose button below the text areas, which says that you have read and understood the Policies. Then you can click to the next page. The next (and last) page shows your domain name again and a checkbox. Please check the checkbox and click to the next step. Now your domain name is activated. You will receive another Danish email, confirming the activation of your domain.
Deletion of not activated domains
Nameservers can only be used if are registered at HostmasterDK and the domain is correctly activated by the domain owner. It have to be registered and approved by DK hostmaster.
Approval of the nameserver can be requested here:
The Transfer procedure for .DK domains is semi-automated. To transfer a .DK domain into your account, please initiate the transfer in your account using TransferDomain or the respective transfer function in the Control Panel. As soon as this has been done, we receive a message and will manually import the domain into account.
