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)

OPTIONAL

auth = <TEXT> | <NULL>
transferlock = 0 | 1 | <NULL>
subuser = <TEXT> | <NULL>

Domain Transfer

The transfer has to be initiated by the gaining registrar and can be requested with the API TransferDomain command.
As soon as a domain transfer has been initiated it can either be approved ("ACK") by Customer or denied ("NACK") by Customer.

command = TransferDomain
domain = (DOMAIN)

REQUIRED

action = REQUEST | APPROVE | DENY | CANCEL | USERTRANSFER
auth = <TEXT>

OPTIONAL

order = CREATE | REPLACE | UPDATE

subuser = <TEXT> | <NULL>
period = <PERIOD>
transferlock = 0 | 1 | <NULL>

Domains can be deleted with the API DeleteDomain command.
There is a Deletion Restorable Period of 30 days and a following Deletion Hold Period of 5 days.

command = DeleteDomain
domain = (DOMAIN)

REQUIRED

n/a


Restore Domain

command = RestoreDomain
domain = (DOMAIN)

REQUIRED

n/a

OPTIONAL

renewalmode = <NULL> | <TEXT>
subuser = <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>

As soon as the trade is initiated at the registry the old registrant and the new registrant will receive an email from the registry which has to be approved.

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.



Upon successfully trading the domain, the registration date will be reset by the registry. The new registration date will be 1 year in the future.

TLD specific

Registration

If the registry-site checks fail (e.g. the given DNS servers do not respond or are not configured properly) the domain is registered with Status RESERVED. The complete error message is included in the API Event / Object-Log. You can fix this problem by sending the following API request:

 command = ModifyDomain
 domain = yourdomain.lu
 delstatus0 = INACTIVE

The name server check provided by the registry has to be completed with "Name server test succeeded". If there occur any errors during the name server check, you will find a respective error description in the object log of the domain.

Transfer

As soon as a transfer has been started the registry will send out an Email asking the domain-owner for confirmation. If the domain-owner will not confirm the transfer within 15 days, the request will be rejected by the registry. A reminder is automatically resent exactly 8 calendar days after the first email. The destination e-mail address is always the one active at the time of the transfer request. Please note that there is a 60 day transfer lock that is automatically applied by the registry after a successful transfer.

Please notice that the LU registry charges a "non-refundable application fee" for each domain transfer. That means that, when a transfer fails, not the full transfer price will get refunded. Regarding prices, please have a look at our price list


Ownerchange

In order to modify the owner contact of a .LU domain you have to request a so-called Trade with the TradeDomain command, which is not free of charge.

This can be done through our web interface or through our API:

 command = TradeDomain
 domain = yourdomain.lu
 ownercontact0 = <CONTACT>
Please note that you enter as the <CONTACT> the new contact-handle (of the new owner) you created before .

The domain-admin will receive an email from the registry which has to be approved. A trade is handled and charged like a new registration.
The period of the domain will be reset to one year.

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.
