Registration is realtime and requires no additional data.

When a Domain Name is Registered, certain information is collected for use on the WhoIs service. The WhoIs Service allows internet users to query a Domain Name to find out the identity and contact details of the Registrant.
The public WhoIs service is a standard feature of Domain Name systems around the world. Please see the .aeDA’s WhoIs Data Collection and Display Policy which sets out the guidelines on the collection, disclosure and use of WhoIs data.




A transfer must be started with an authorization code. The current registrar can provide the registrant with this authorization code. After initiating the transfer the registrant of the domainname will receive an e-mail requesting confirmation.

After this confirmation is given the transfer will be started at the registry and the current registrar has 2 days to object or approve the transfer. After 2 days the transfer will automatically finalize.

If the authorization code cannot be retrieved from the current registrar, it can be requested at the registry directly through their password recovery page.


The authorization code can only be shared with the registrant, not with the reseller.
