Registrant Eligibility Requirements and Use

In order to be eligible to register (and continue to be a registrant of) a domain name in .LAW, the registrant must be a Qualified Lawyer. For the purposes of this Eligibility Policy, a Qualified Lawyer is a professional who is licensed to practice law by an approved regulator of legal services in a given jurisdiction.

A Qualified Lawyer must be identifiable as a currently licensed practitioner in the public records kept by the relevant approved regulator. Therefore, using a registrar proxy or privacy service or any other service having an equivalent effect are prohibited.

More information on the eligibility criteria for registering a .LAW domain may be found here.

Optional Information For Registration and Use of a .LAW Domain

At the point of registration or shortly after registration, the following fields may be provided for .ABOGADO registrations. Please note that as of January 7th, 2019, these fields will no longer be required.

  • The name of their Regulator
  • The date of their registration with their Regulator
  • The reference number of their registration with their Regulator
  • The jurisdiction of their Regulator

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.

command = TransferDomain
domain = (DOMAIN)

REQUIRED

auth = (TEXT)

OPTIONAL

period = (PERIOD)
transferlock = 0 | 1 | (NULL)
action = REQUEST | APPROVE | DENY | CANCEL | USERTRANSFER

Delete Domain

Domains can be deleted with the API DeleteDomain command.
There is a Deletion Restorable Period of 45 days and a following Deletion Hold Period of 5 days.

command = DeleteDomain
domain = (DOMAIN)

Restore Domain

Restores can be processed in realtime. A restore is possible within 45 days upon deletion. Please use the command RestoreDomain.

command = RestoreDomain
domain = (DOMAIN)

OPTIONAL

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

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>



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.

command = ModifyDomain
domain = (DOMAIN)

REQUIRED

ownercontact0 = (CONTACT)
x-law-accept-highly-regulated-tac = 1

  • having at least one (1) numeric,

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.
