Trade (owner change)


To change the owner of a .ba domainname you will first need to initiate a trade through the Openprovider control panel. Once this is done, you will be supplied with an ownerchange form. Once this is filled in and forwarded to the registry, it will take a few days for the change to be processed.
Also note that after a trade the domain will be renewed for a year, the remaining period is then lost.




The details of a contactperson can be changed through the control panel. No further forms are required for this action.




A domain can only be deleted at least a month before the renewal period. The deletion can be done by simply requesting this through the control panel.


Restore (reactivation)


Unfortunately .ba domainnames can not be restored.
