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

Successful domain registration via RCP or API requires:


  • the domain's contact handles including:
    • For companies
      • Company registration number required
  • two or more pre-configured nameservers or a nameserver group

Up to 72 hours of processing time

Note: Fake data in the handles can lead to deletion of the domainname by the Registry.



Successful domain transfer requires:

  • the domain's contact handles including:
    • For companies
      • Company registration number required
  • two or more pre-configured nameservers or a nameserver group

The domain holder may not change during the transfer request.


Transfer requests are initiated at domreg.lt using the following procedure:


  1. Indicate a new registrar at domreg.lt
  2. Within 7 days after this operation, order the transfer in Openprovider, otherwise the transfer request will time out.
  3. Details about selecting a registrar are listed on the registry's website. The steps are the following:
    1. If the registrant does not or no longer have access to the registrant website:
      1. Check the whois for the registrant's e-mail address
      2. Ask the current registrar for the Registrant ID
      3. Generate an activation code through http://www.domreg.lt/public?pg=6EE48B
  • Log in to the registrant panel
  • Select the domain(s) to transfer and select "Hosting Concepts B.V. d/b/a Registrar.eu" as new registrar
  • Once done, order the transfer at Openprovider within 7 days.
Authorization code required no
Method of confirmation registrarpush
Registration period after transfer unchanged
Average transfer time Max. 7 days
Advanced and simple transfers available Contact our Sales department to check if easy transfer of 100 or more .lt domains is available.

In order to transfer-out the domain towards an other registrar, the registrant will need a Registrant ID. This Registrant ID can be requested by the Openprovider Reseller (not by the registrant endcustomer)  via support@openprovider.com


Owner change (trade)

Trade requests are initiated at domreg.lt


  1. Initiate a trade request at domreg.lt
  2. Indicates a new registrant and optionally a new registrar as well (trade and transfer can be combined)
  3. Order a trade at Openprovider within 7 days after this operation.
  • Trade is handled and charged like a new registration
  • The period of the domain is reset to one year
  • Trade is not allowed for the first 30 days after initial registration of a domain name

Other update

  • domain update - by updating associated handles
  • processed in realtime


  • deletion - processed in realtime
  • deletion leads to 30 day quarantine

During the quarantine the domain can be re-registered by its original owner. After these 30 days the registry will keep the domain reserved for up to 24 hours (random interval) before releasing it for registration again.

Restore / reactivate

In order to recover/reactivate an .lt domain (during its quarantine), send an email to support@openprovider.com.

Registration agreement The registry requires that a registration agreement is in place between the provider and the domain holder. The text of this registration agreement and any required supplements is the following:

Due to the regular changes in registry rules and configuration or missing information from registry side, and despite our effort to keep our knowledge base up-to-date, information in the knowledge base may be outdated or incorrect. If you encounter some issue, please report it through the "HotJar" feedback collector on the bottom right, or (if it is blocked by your browser) by clicking the "Submit a request" link below. No rights can be derived from the information in this knowledge base. If there is discrepancy between the knowledge base and the process in Openprovider, the process in Openprovider is leading.
