API

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)
x-eco-accept-highly-regulated-tac = 1

OPTIONAL

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

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 http://www.icann.org/transfers/ :

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 http://www.hexonet.net/


command = TransferDomain
domain = (DOMAIN)

TLD Specific

Registering Your .ECO Domain: Activation Overview

.ECO domain names will remain on "server hold" status and cannot be used until you 1) complete a .ECO Profile and 2) pledge your support to positive change for the planet and to be honest when sharing environmental actions.

The .ECO Profile

A .ECO Profile is a free service provided by the .ECO Registry that allows you to publicly showcase your positive environmental actions at https://www.profiles.eco. Once your .ECO Profile is complete, your domain will be active.

Activation Flow

Upon successful registration of a .ECO domain, you will receive an email invitation to activate a .ECO Profile and take the pledge at the registry's website. Reminder emails will be sent 3, 7, 14, and 30 days after registration to remind those who have not activated their .ECO Profile and taken the pledge to do so.

Email subject: Activate [mydomain].eco


Once an account is created at the registry, registrants will receive a confirmation email that their .ECO user account has been successfully created. Reminder emails will be sent 3, 7, 14, and 30 days after creation if necessary to remind registrants to complete their .ECO Profile.

Email subject: Welcome to .eco!


When the registrant successfully completes their .ECO Profile, they will receive one final email informing them that their .ECO Profile is complete and that their domain is now active.

Email subject: [mydomain].eco is now active!


Note: All activation emails from the registry will be sent to the Registrant Contact from the address <activate@profiles.eco>.

X-ECO-ACCEPT-HIGHLY-REGULATED-TAC

All .ECO domain names will be first registered with “server hold” status pending the completion of the minimum requirements of the Eco Profile, namely, the .ECO registrant 1) affirming their compliance with the .ECO Eligibility Policy and 2) pledging to support positive change for the planet and to be honest when sharing information on their environmental actions. The registrant will be emailed with instructions on how to create an Eco Profile. Once these steps have been completed, the .ECO domain will be immediately activated by the registry.

More information on registration and eligibility policies may be found at the registry's website: https://www.home.eco/policies/

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 .ECO domain:

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

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

command = ModifyDomain
domain = (DOMAIN)

REQUIRED

generaterandomauth = 1

Addons

The following overview shows you all available Domain Addons which can be used for this special kind of TLD. It also shows the respective API parameters which are required to activate the Domain Addons:

Addon Class Parameter to (de)activate *1) Renewal term *2) Affected Parameters *3)
Proxy (WHOISTRUSTEELITE_AFILIASSRS) X-ACCEPT-WHOISTRUSTEELITE-TAC = 0 | 1 1 month All Contacts
Proxy (WHOISTRUSTEE_AFILIASSRS) X-ACCEPT-WHOISTRUSTEE-TAC = 0 | 1 1 month All Contacts






*1) Parameter to (de)activate: When accessing our backend through the API, you can either activate the addon with X-ACCEPT-WHOISTRUSTEELITE-TAC=1 or deactivate it with
      X-ACCEPT-WHOISTRUSTEELITE-TAC=0
*2) Renewal Term: Is the minimum renewal term of the "Addon Class"
*3) If you are using a "Proxy" Domain Addon normally all contact handles are affected (registrant, admin, tech, and billing contact).
      
      




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, 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.
