TLD specific

NameserverCheck

Configured nameservers are required by the registry. A nameserver check is available here https://dnscheck.sidn.nl

Please note that the registry performs a nameserver check. If this registry-check fails, you will have 7 days to correct your DNS configuration. Our system triggers a new nameserver check every 24 hours. So you should send a simple ModifyDomain command to trigger a new nameserver check by yourself.


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.
