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.
Domain transfers are processed in Real-Time.

command = TransferDomain

command = DeleteDomain
domain = (DOMAIN)

Restore Domain

Restores can be processed in realtime. A restore is possible within 0 days upon deletion. Please use the command RestoreDomain.


Ownerchange

All contact information with the exception of registrant Name, Firstname and Organisation can be updated through the ModifyDomain command.
In order to change the owner you have to request a trade with the TradeDomain command. This can be done through our web interface or through our API:

command = TradeDomain
domain = <DOMAIN>
ownercontact0 = <CONTACT>

Before a trade gets initiated at the registry, a confirmation is required: An email confirmation will be sent to the registrant / administrative contact which has to be confirmed. Once confirmed then the trade is initiated.

The trade request will be processed in Real-Time by the registry.

A Change of Registrar with the simultaneous change in the Registrant is not possible. Please be aware that domain name must be already managed by us. If the domain is currently managed by another registrar there are two possibilities:
   1.) first step: transfer the domain to us, second step: trade the domain with us.
   2.) first step: trade the domain with the current registrar, second step: transfer the domain to us.
OPTIONAL

X-FI-REGISTRANT-IDNUMBER = <TEXT>

Domain Transfers

Inbound Domain Transfers

The losing registrar has to create a transfer key for the domain at the registry which will be only valid for 30 days. This key can be used as Authorization Code when requesting the transfer at HEXONET:

command = TransferDomain
domain = (DOMAIN)

Renewal Process

Domains can be renewed explicitly with the API RenewDomain command.
Valid Renewal Periods are: 1-5 years.

Ownerchange

Step 1
Request a TradeDomain:
REQUIRED

command = TradeDomain
domain = (DOMAIN)
ownercontact0 = (CONTACT)

OPTIONAL

X-FI-REGISTRANT-IDNUMBER = <TEXT>
X-FI-REGISTRANT-BIRTH-DATE = <TEXT>

You have to provide either X-FI-REGISTRANT-IDNUMBER or X-FI-REGISTRANT-BIRTH-DATE (see table above).

If this command was executed successfully then the registry will send an email with a so called 'transfer key' (referring to >>transfer of ownership<<) to the registrant of the domain.

This works a a trigger to authorise the change of ownership.

Step 2
Authorize the change of registrant with an ActivateDomainTrade command:
REQUIRED

command = ActivateDomainTrade
domain = (DOMAIN)
trigger = (TRANSFER KEY)

If this command was executed successfully then the trade will be completed automatically within a few minutes.

Cancelling a Trade: After requesting a trade but prior to a successful ActivateDomainTrade command you can cancel a trade as follows:
REQUIRED

command = TradeDomain
action = cancel
domain = (DOMAIN)

Addons

RegistrarOC

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.


Pass-Through Behavior

It is also possible to configure your account in such a way that AddDomain and TradeDomain are directly sent to the registry. In this case, there is no need to use the commands ActivateDomainRegistration and ActivateDomainTrade.
