TLD specific

WHOIS information

It is not possible to enter a own email address for the owner, admin, tech or billing contact. The registry needs the address <adamsnames@1api.net> to be in all 4 contact handles for administrative reasons. You can use a own email address within the contact handles, but in the WHOIS database, only <adamsnames@1api.net> will be displayed. All other contact data from the handles will be displayed normally in the WHOIS database.

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.
