- two or more nameservers or a nameserver group
Please note premium domains (short, memorable and general names) are more expensive to register and renew.
This is technical specification for this zone: to check premium price we will need to push creation request first.
Openprovider anyway will return regular price but later customer will be notified about exact requested domain price.
Once informed, customer will have a choice to confirm or decline registration.
It takes up to 5 days before it is successfully transfered. During this period the current registrar can object against the transfer.
Additional notes on a .tk transferError during transfer: 545:
