If all these are present a registration can be started by contacting our support department with the domain name, contact handles and nameservers you would like to use.

We will initiate the procedure for you and send the necessary forms for registration.

Note that the top level domain .id is available without local presence requirements.




To transfer a domain, please retrieve the authorization code from the current registrar and send this to our support department together with the contact handles and the nameservers you would like to use.

We will process the rest of the transfer for you.
