A .lt domain name registration is not realtime; it can take up to three working days before a domain is active.




Before ordering a transfer in Openprovider, the domain holder must initiate the transfer request at the website of the registry ( He indicates the new registrar. Within 7 days after this operation, order the transfer in Openprovider, otherwise the transfer request will time out.

Details about selecting a registrar are listed on the registry's website. The steps are the following:

  • If the registrant does not or no longer have access to the registrant website:

  • Log in to the registrant panel
  • Select the domain(s) to transfer and select "Hosting Concepts B.V. d/b/a" as new registrar
  • After this has been done, the transfer must be ordered in Openprovider within 7 days.

Trade (owner change)


Before ordering a trade in Openprovider, the domain holder must initiate the trade request at the website of the registry ( He indicates the new registrant, and optionally a new registrar as well (trade and transfer can be combined). Within 7 days after this operation, order the trade in Openprovider.

A trade is handled and charged like a new registration. The period of the domain is reset to one year.

A trade is not allowed for the first 30 days after initial registration of a domain name.




A change of contact details can be done by updating the associated handles in the control panel.
After saving the changes the domainname will be updated realtime.




A delete is realtime. After a delete the domain will be in quarantine status for 30 days. During this period the domain can be re-registered by its original owner. After these 30 days have passed, the registry will keep the domain reserved for up to 24 hours (random interval) before releasing it for registration again.


Restore (reactivation)


There is no real 'restore' procedure: the registrant can reactivate the domain by ordering it as a new registration. During the first 30 days after deletion, the registry verifies that the registrant is the same as the original registrant.

.lt domains that have been deleted by another registrar, can be reactivated in Openprovider as well. Please contact us for more information.
