Registration is realtime and requires no additional data.




A transfer requires a transfer code. Once started an e-mail will be sent to the domain owner for confirmation. After the transfer has finished, the domain owner will receive another e-mail from the registry.


If you provide an invalid authorization code, the registry returns an unclear error: "No open confirmation-process of the domain [] to the registrar [648] found." Check the authorization code with your current registrar.

In case the current registrar cannot or does not provide the authorization code of a domain name, please contact us. We might be able to retrieve the code through the registry directly.

Trade (owner change)


To change the owner of a .at domainname you will first have to initiate a trade in the Openprovider control panel.
Once this is done, download the necessary form from the registry website:
Once filled and signed, make sure to fax the form to the number as listed on the document. After the trade has finished, the domain owner will receive another e-mail from the registry.






There are two ways of removing a .at domain from Openprovider:
- Explicitly deleting it requires written confirmation from the domain owner and will result in a 8 weeks redemption period. A delete should be done at most 24 days before the domain's renewal date. The deletion form can easily be created at and is for your own administration only.
- "Withdrawing" gives the domain back to the registry. The contractual relationship is now between registry (NIC AT) and domain owner. NIC AT will send a renewal invoice to the domain owner. If the end user wants to delete the domain, he should send a signed form ( to NIC AT.


Restore (reactivation)


Restores are possible within 55 days after deletion if the domain was deleted explicitly.
