Trade (owner change)


To trade a .ro domain name you will first need to get the "trade authorization key" for the domain.
This code can be requested from the registry website by the current registrant; visit the menu .ro Domain Registry > Domain administration > Online. These steps are visualized in the screenshots below. Note that the trade authorization key is valid for 14 days only.

Once you have the code you can send it to us and we will start the trade. Once started you will receive forms from us to sign. Once signed these forms will need to be sent to the registry via postal mail to the address as listed on the forms themselves.

If all goes right and is accepted the trade will complete as soon as the registry processes it.
