Registration is realtime and only requires the VAT number (if the registrant is a company) or the personal identification number (if the registrant is a legal person from Sweden).




A transfer can be initiated using the authorization code which can be retrieved at the current registrar.
Using the code you can request the transfer through the Openprovider control panel. This transfer will be processed real-time.

The registry will not send an e-mail to the domain contacts after the transfer finishes.
