Transfers & Changes
Please click on a category below to view detailed instructions, forms and frequently asked questions related to transferring or making changes to your domain name.

 

TRANSFER REGISTRANT
You will need to send a fax on either the company letterhead and with an appropriate signature of the current registrant if a company, or a notorized fax if an individual. The fax must contain the name of the new registrant and all other contact and DNS information normally required for a new registration. Please see our registration section for more details of what is required.

 


Who is the legal registrant of a domain name?

When a domain name is registered, the "registrant" contracts the use of the domain name.  However, there is no permanent registrant for any domain name.  The "registrant" of a domain name is the original contact listed under Organization Using Domain Name (Registrant) at the time of registration, regardless of whether the other contact information has been changed since that time.

Please note that the Administrative contact is not automatically the registrant. Nic AG recognizes the registrant as the final authority on a domain name, so please make sure that you have entered the correct registrant information at the time of registration. Changing a registrant associated with a domain name is a longer and more involved process and requires fax authorization.

Why would I need to transfer registrant of a domain name?
In the event that you would like to buy or sell a domain name, the only way to legally change the registrant information on file for the domain name is to undergo an official Transfer of Registrant with the registrar for the domain name.

Note:  Simply editing Contact Information (such as Organization and Administrative contacts) does not constitute a Transfer of Registrant.
