The registration policies closely follow those of the gTLDs like .com or .london; a successful domain registration via RCP or API requires:

  • two or more nameservers or a nameserver group

Successful domain transfer via RCP or API requires:

  • authorisation code
  • two or more nameservers or a nameserver group


During the transfer period which can take 6 days, the current provider or the owner can reject to the transfer.

The registration period after a successful transfer will extend with 1 year, unless the transfer is ordered within the domain's auto-renew grace period at the previous registrar.
