What procedure to follow with .be transfers which are marked as "Internal transfer"?
In the case of an internal transfer, a notification is shown during the transfer process stating "Internal Transfer". This means that the domain is already registered with Openprovider but with another reseller and requires a different approach.
When doing an internal transfer our system is directly getting all the current data of handles and DNS.
To process an internal .be transfer, please follow the steps below:
A successful internal transfer requires:
- Internal authorization code
- trade (owner-change) is not allowed during an internal transfer
Why can Openprovider not use the external code?
If a domain is already registered under another reseller of Openprovider, the external transfer code can not be used, due to the fact that Openprovider can not verify this transfer code.
The transfer code from the registry will only be provided to the registrant, not the registrar. Therefore, we can not automatically verify that this code is indeed correct.
In order to validate internal transfer, a so-called internal authorization code can be requested by the current Openprovider reseller through the Authorization Code Management page in his control panel, selecting the option "internal authorization code".
In case the current reseller is not willing or can not provide the internal authorization code, please send us by email the external code from the .BE registry and we will manually check with the .BE registry if this code is valid.
Please keep in mind, as this is a manual check, it is not processed in real time and only be processed during office hours.
After validation, the code is added to the system and can now be used for the internal transfer.
Be aware! A trade (owner change) is not allowed during an internal transfer. If the owner needs to change, a trade can be processed after the intern transfer. Make sure you use handles that match the current registrant.
If non-matching data is used during an internal transfer, future updates on the domain may fail.
The domain holder can provide you with the correct current data.
