- Once you have the code you can send it to us and we will start the trade.
- If all goes right and is accepted the trade will complete as soon as the registry processes it.
- Screenshots showing how to request a trade authorization key:
- A contact or nameserver update can be performed by updating the handle of the domain.
- This change is processed realtime.
- In order to delete a .RO domain, you can disable the auto-renewal.
- The domain will expire on the expiration date. (recommended) If you want the domain deleted directly, a deletion document needs to be filled in.
- This document needs to be faxed to the registry and the original document needs to be sent by postal mail to: ICI - ROTLD Registry Bd. Averescu 8-10 Sector 1 Bucharest 011455 Romania
- Please contact support for the required document. So, no additional paperwork is required if you let the domain expire on the expiration date, while the deletion can be performed at any point of time during the registration period, but paperwork is required.
Restore / reactivate
- A restore can be requested via API command or via webinterface.
- The restore request will be manually processed by our support team. You will be notified by email
