Click on the subject below to open the dropdown for more information.

  • requested as a normal domain update via RCP or API
  • processed manually, not realtime.
  • owner handle must have passport or identification number, even when the registrant is a company.
  • Forms are needed.

 

ADDITIONAL NOTES

  • Once the registration has been submitted, we will send you a form that needs to be confirmed within 14 days, otherwise it will time out.
  • Once the online form has been processed the registration will be accepted by the registry. Once accepted the domain will be in a waiting period for 10 till 16 days, during which the registry evaluates the request. 
  • The technical check for .hu domains is a bit more strict than other TLDs. Please check the tool supplied by the registry; http://www.domain.hu/domain/English/regcheck/. The main difference to other DNS checks is that the registry requires a postmaster@domain.hu to be active on the mailserver that you inserted in the DNS zone. Make sure that the mailserver is already accepting mail for the postmaster mailbox in the domain you are requesting.
  • Registration cancellations by applicant are not supported at any stage of the process, and are non-refundable. 

Successful domain transfer requires:

  • manually requested by us
  • forms
  • documents
  • two or more nameservers or a nameserver group

 

Please, send to support@openprovider.com this information:

  • contact handles (KvK number and VAT number must be in owner's handle)
  • nameservers
  • kvk forms
  • copy ID of the registrant

 

Registry will generate a form and this form needs to be filled in and signed by the owner. The owner needs to send it to the faxnumber given on the form. As soon as the Registrar receives it it will be send to the Registry and they will check if everything is OK.
